Unruly Bicycling Group
We meet in the parking lot behind Unruly Brewing Company (UBC) for a 90 minute bike ride. Wheels turn at 6:00 every Tuesday.
There is a right-fit group for you:
•The group with knobby tires will stitch together a route of alleys, trails, and backstreets.
•The group that goes 8-10 mph follows the bike trail.
The other groups take to the roads through North Muskegon.
•The 14 mph group goes a total distance 17 miles.
•The 17 mph group goes a total distance of 20 miles (including Blockhouse Hill).
•The 20 mph group goes a total distance of 30 miles (including Blockhouse Hill).
Helmets are strongly encouraged on all four routes. Loaner helmets are always available at City Hub Cyclery.
UBC provides us with the added incentive of $1 off our first post-ride beer!
