Well tomorrow is the day! We will have our Seersucker Ride on June 16th, 2012. The ride will be from 3:30-5:30 starting in Downtown Alpena (in front of Blue Phoenix Books) and finishing at ACC (Alpena Community College).
"Last fall The Alpena Tweed and Bike Club held its first Tweed Ride. It consisted of a group of cyclists who dressed in traditional cycling attire, particularly tweed suits, to recreate the spirit of a bygone era. Since we have many more friends in town in the summer, than the fall we decided to offer an additional Seersucker ride that is happening this weekend. This was a family friendly event with the goal of taking bicycling back to the day of a fun family adventure. We ask all to attempt the dress of the early 20th century, no matter what kind of bike you ride. If you don’t have the clothing, we ask that you bring your sense of fun, and participate in this ride that is geared to even our slowest riders."
We should have a few friends from the League of Michigan Bicyclists who will be in town for the Sunrise Bicycle Tour. Please come out and show these individuals how friendly Alpena can be.
