Centre Fall Fun Ride

Announcing the Centre Fall Fun Ride!

Date: Saturday, October 17, 2009  (no alternate bad weather date)

Place: Kiwanis Trail (River Raisin Greenway Project), Trestle Park trailhead entrance, West Hunt Street  (Turn at Subway on Main Street), Adrian, MI 49221

Time: 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM

Parking: There is free parking available at Trestle Park and more parking at the intersection of Hunt Road and Riverside Drive in Adrian.

Registration: Registration begins at 8:30AM and ends at 11:00 AM on the day of the ride at Trestle Park on the south side of the parking area.  There is no pre-registration, but if you intend to ride you can request the registration document by emailing leanfreeagent@gmail.com with Centre Fall Fun Ride in the subject line.  An adult responsible for their behavior and safety must accompany all children under 16.  Riders under 18 must have their parent or guardians signature on the registration and release form.

Fee: NO FEE!  Donations will be accepted to cover the cost of support, water, fruit and snacks.

Helmets: We will expect all riders to conform to local bicycling laws.  Helmets are strongly recommended for all riders, but required for children under 14 years old.  If you do not own a helmet, please contact us by email before the day of the ride and we will try to provide one for you or your child.

Route: The entire ride takes place on the Kiwanis Trail (River Raisin Greenway Project), a beautiful FLAT paved pathway that runs from Adrian to the outskirts of Tecumseh.  The trail is mostly wooded with several wooden bridges across ravines and water.  This ride is intended for leisure and recreational riders.  This is an excellent fellowship opportunity for family and friends, especially those interested in exploring bicycling for fitness or commuting.  Ride support includes trail guides, limited mechanical support, three water and healthy snack rest stops, a restroom facility near the trail midpoint, and crossing guard volunteers for the heavy traffic intersections.  The trail is approximately 8 miles.  Most riders are encouraged to ride to the end and return for a total distance of 16 miles, but riders can extend or shorten their rides by turning back anywhere along the trial or completing the circuit multiple times.  Remember, support packs up at 2:00 PM.   NOTE:  Racing and drafting will not be tolerated as they create a hazard for slower and beginning cyclists and walkers.

Questions: Please contact the Christian Family Centre or email leanfreeagent@gmail.com if you have questions or want to volunteer to help!
