Who wants to go for a little bike ride?
For the third year in a row the June 9 Love Ludington weekend will feature an attempt to break a world record (actually TWO this year). All we need is 1,500 folks with a bicycle, a helmet is strongly recommended.
The Shoreline Cycling Club is partnering with the Love Ludington committee and hopes to claim the records for the longest parade of bicycles (1,186) as well as the longest line of bikes in a row not moving (1,448). Thanks to the Mason Oceana Manistee board of realtors, Metalworks, and House of Flavors for sponsoring this madness.
What? – Setting two Guinness World Records
When? – Saturday morning, June 9th between 7:30 am and 11:30 am.
Why? – Because we’re nuts.
Where (and some more when)? – Oriole Field, Ludington, registration will be Friday night from 6-9pm near the ticket booth at the corner of Gaylord and Tinkham Avenue, morning of registration will be from 7:30am to 9:15am, ride will start at 9:30 am sharp and we should be done with the riders by 11.
Who? – Anyone with a bike, and, preferably a helmet. The ride will be no more than 5 miles and the pace will be a very casual 8-9 miles an hour.
Parking Information, There will be some parking in Oriole Field and the city streets east of where the Lakestride runners will park. You’ll have a bike so we think there should be parking downtown and on any of the streets east of Rath as well as the high school, St Simons and the Methodist Church said it’s fine to use their parking lots as overflow. Both are within a mile of the event start.
Show your team colors in 2018 with a Shoreline Cycling Club kit, more information here.
We placed our first order but we can order in fewer quantities now that we hit the minimums. We’ll try not to kill Borah with onesy-twosys, but maybe place an order when we get 5 or so in a bunch.
Welcome to the Shoreline Cycling Club homepage. Geographically the club covers approximately Oceana, Mason, Lake, Manistee and Benzie Counties in Michigan’s Lower Peninsula. We work with a variety of land managers and municipalities to help maintain and increase access to cycling opportunities as well as educating the public about cycling and trying to hold fun events/rides.
In recent years we have taken on many projects such as building trails, grooming fat bike trails, teaching bicycle safety to children and promoting the area as a cycling destination through our DIRTroad ride guide. The club benefits from people like you, joining our club, see link at right, and proceeds of the Singletrack Showdown mountain bike race, held annually the Saturday after Thanksgiving in Ludington, Michigan.
