Bike Ypsi to host 6th annual Spring Ride and Festival event
Bike Ypsi, a community cycling group, will host its sixth Spring Ride and Festival event Sunday, May 5, the Ypsilanti Courier reported.
Bike Ypsi began in 2007 to encourage biking in city streets.
The free event will feature guided bike rides through Ypsilanti, beginning at 9 a.m. at the Recreation Park on North Congress Street. Rides will leave around 10 a.m. and will have three different lengths depending on riders skill level.
The five-mile ride will be for those looking for a short ride through the city on bike paths and through the Border-to-Border trail, a 15-mile ride that explores the various roads and routes, and a 33-mile ride for those looking for a challenge.
According to the group's page there will be local bike shops on hand to perform maintenance before the rides to ensure that participants' bikes are ready for the roads.
Bike Ypsi's website said there will be a cookout following the event.
