The 2017 Michigan Ride Calendar is now available. In addition to the table listing on our website, we have uploaded a downloadable PDF version. The Ride Calendar is mailed to Michigan bike shops and all current members in February. If you are not a current member, we encourage you to join today! You can also request a Ride Calendar to be mailed to you by filling out our Michigan bicycle tourism packet request form.
2017 marks the 33rd year that LMB has coordinated and distributed this comprehensive calendar of Michigan cycling events. Since 1984 the Ride Calendar has been an essential resource for event organizers to promote their rides and charity events and has become the "go-to" resource cyclists use to plan the riding season.
Our sincere appreciation also goes out to all of event organizers across the state. We especially want to highlight the 70 events participating in our $1 Per Rider Program in 2017. We are extremely grateful for their generosity. These events donate $1 on behalf of each event participant in support of LMB's efforts to promote bicycling and increase the safety of bicyclists on Michigan roadways. This financial support provides LMB essential funding to advocate for a more bicycle-friendly Michigan. Please look for $1 Per Rider Events highlighted throughout the publication.
In addition to supporting our $1 Per Rider partners, we hope you will support us directly by riding with LMB in 2017. LMB Bicycle Tours are the largest single funding source for our education, advocacy, and promotion efforts in support of better bicycling in Michigan. For 31 years LMB has hosted multi-day bicycle tours – from weekend to weeklong fully supported events. In addition to supporting our work at the State Capitol on behalf of all cyclists in Michigan, our tours give riders the opportunity to enjoy Michigan's magnificent scenery, visit unique local communities and businesses and pedal past charming towns, picturesque countryside, and historic Great Lakes lighthouses.
This year LMB is thrilled to announce our newest event Hadrian's Ultimate Bicycle Fest, or HUB Fest! Learn more about HUB Fest in the inside cover of the Ride Calendar. We hope you'll join us on June 10 for four unique routes and an after-party to remember in historic Adrian, MI. Join the fun at: www.LMB.org/HUBfest
