Ride to the Library

facebook.com_LakelandsTrailStatePark.jpgOnce the weather warms up, I’m ready to get on my bicycle and ride the country roads. I also enjoy bringing my bike to work and riding the Mike Levine Lakelands Trail State Park (pictured left). Last summer I rode past Munith to the west and way past Gregory to the east. I found information about this rail trail and other Michigan rail trails in The Official Rails-to-Trails Conservancy Guidebook and this great website.

This year, my goal is to ride to the end of the rail trail in Hamburg and learn more about bicycle maintenance. I can’t do much beyond changing a tire right now, but fortunately we have many books on bike maintenance to guide me. 

Another reason I’m excited about bikes this year is that soon you’ll see a new bike rack in the front of the branch! The rack was funded with a grant by the 5 rail trails in michigan.pngHealthy Towns Foundation. It’s a secure place to park your bike or scooter when you visit.

Hope to see you soon!
