Check out the calendar below for all the Events that took place during Bike Week 2019, and check out the Announcements page for news that took place during the week until we “retire” them and our 2019 Sponsors page in the fall.

Many of us are already looking ahead and forward to Bike Week 2020. Please see our Organizer Info page for ideas and how to get involved. You are welcome to help shape and join in the week-long (“plus”) celebration! This year we will be holding a Fall Bike Celebration from September 20-22 to welcome the autumnal equinox, as well. There’s lots happening to show that our greater community is becoming even more bicycle friendly.

As the months progress between now and the next Bike Week, we will be updating the calendar to let you know about periodic planning meetings.

Mountain Biking 101 for Women - POSTPONED UNTIL MAY 18

  • Al Sabo Preserve Texas Dr Kalamazoo, MI, 49009 United States (map)

 

Ever wondered what mountain biking is like but too scared to give it a go? Don't have a bike to try it? No worries, we've got you covered. Now is the chance to ride the Al Sabo trail in a safe and instructional environment. SWMMBA and Pedal are teaming up to put together a Ladies Only Mountain Bike 101 instructional ride at the Al Sabo trailhead on Monday, May 11th. Pedal will have demo bikes available to rent (reservations are required ahead of time). Women will be taught the basics of trail riding and safety. There will be a 30 min pre-ride required training session at the Texas Township Park parking lot at 6:30pm. We will go over the rules of the trail, divide into small groups, and then ridea short distance to Al Sabo from the parking lot. Please note that this is a Ladies Only ride. All ages are welcome however, we ask that all individuals under the age of 17 are accompanied by an adult. Registration is required.

The event is free.  Please register so they'll know you're coming.  Follow this link https://www.facebook.com/BikeKzoo to the Bike Week Facebook page and click on "Plan to Attend" and say you're attending the event or call PEDAL at 567-3325.

Directions:  From Texas Corners turn northeast onto Texas Drive. The preserve is 3/4 mile on the north side. There is no sign for the preserve, instead look for the Camp Roto Kiwan Boy Scout Camp. The preserve entrance is located just east of the camp.
