    Ring around the Lake

    So - I was talking to a friend at work and he had an idea that he has been tossing around with his riding buddies - Ring Tour around Lake Michigian.

    It has crossed my mind before but never seemed to find the time. Plus - North of Green Bay on the West and North of Traverse City are an unknown to me.

    So what you think: An easy introductory ride.
    After that - backcountry roads to Alaska???

    First ride on April 11, 12, and 13th
    Ride around Lake Michigian:

    Depending on who wants to come - we can either camp or hotel. I'd personally
    If others want - we can work in a theme: Geocaching, etc... ??

    weather

    I'd like to do it, but I'll be the first wimp to be worried about the weather that time of year, going north.
    If you don't wear a helmet when you ride....you probably shouldn't be riding.

    28,000 when purchased, about 30,000 before today's ride. The restoration was extensive - and my wife would say excessive. Nonetheless - as of this year - a nice Vintage ride.

    That early in April can give you snow on the Northern edge of that loop. However, since we're talking a weekend ride, I'd absolutely be game. Keep us posted.

    Snow is definetly a minus
    May 2,3, and 4th? Plus makes camping more of an option
    Does this date work for ohers?

    Works for me -

    BTW, just came back from a ride that this club should consider as a annual ride - out to Starved Rock State Park - following the Illinois River from the East. Wow - this is a nice jaunt!

    Early May will be fine, so long as everyone has electric vests and grips, fresh oil and good tires!

    Small world - Starved Rock is just a 1/2 hr south of me. Great Hiking - It would be great ride; I have been meaning to ride out that way but since its so close then I typically head up to WI or MI instead.

    May it is for the Ring around Lake Michigian. Should be fun! Plus if you just came back from Starved Rock - its below freezing this weekend - you'll be fine in May.

    Anyone else in? Its months away so there is plenty of time to set aside a long weekend in May.

    Toys for Tots -

    Yep I'll join - it'll be good to have a few Beemer riders together. This assumes we don't have snow that weekend.

    The 'celebrity' would be coming up from Indianapolis, so would probably not join in the planning meeting.
    I work in Northbrook - not too far from Lake Forest. I'm sure we can arrange for something in Jan.
