Invitational Ride
Registration is required

A biking event to promote bike riding safety inspired by and in memory of our good friend David Baker who was<br />tragically killed in 2019 when a vehicle struck him while he was riding his bike. David was an avid biker who<br />participated in many endurance events such as the Zoo-de-Mac, ODRAM (One day ride across Michigan), DALMAC and<br />the National 24 Hour Challenge. Proceeds from this event will be split and donated to both the Pere Marquette Rail<br />Trail and the Tri-County Bicycle Association/DALMAC FUND Inc.<br /><br />The event will take place September 10th, 2022, in Clare, MI. Riders will leave from the North-East parking lot of the<br />Doherty Hotel and proceed to the Pere Marquette Rail Trail a few blocks to the southeast. From there it is up to each<br />individual to choose their preferred distance as they set out towards Midland. The rail trail has been chosen for<br />maximizing safety and flexibility. Some riders may choose only a few miles while others may enjoy the challenge of a 60<br />mile round trip to Midland and back. In case of severe weather the rain out date will be Sunday September 11th.<br /><br />You must register by August 20th to receive swag.<br />Swag bags (shirt, water bottle and koozie) will be available for pick up the morning of the ride from 8am – 11am in the<br />North-East parking lot. In the interest of flexibility, all riders are free to set out and return on their own schedule. Event<br />donation is $30 (non-refundable). Family members under 18 are free but must be accompanied by a registered adult.<br />Swag bags will only be available for adult pre-registered riders. <br /><br /> For those who plan on spending the night or weekend at the Doherty, word is, available reservations are limited. Please<br />contact the hotel soon to reserve your room.
