I was helping a little bit with the 2017 FMC Calendar, and I thought it might be nice to be able to set my desktop background to some of the photographs that have been taken for our monthly contest.
Eight riders + Mother Nature got together on a brisk Saturday morning for a 90+ mile tour of some of North-East Oakland Counties best tree covered sweepers.
5 riders showed up for a short run from the Plymouth K-Mart to J.S. Fields. The ride was mostly Hines Drive but heading east so no setting sun shining in our eye to hide the fall colors that are starting to emerge. We took a jaunt north up through Rouge River Park on the Outer Drive sweepers then back south the way we came.
Day 1, Friday 10/7/2016
George A., Dale B., Ollie D., Mark G., John & Barb J., Al M., Charles R., and Joe & Sherri S. met at the Pilot Travel Center in Monroe, MI Friday morning. The weather was clear and in the 60s with high to be near 80. After filling up and a quick briefing we took I-75 south to I-280 then OH-420 to US-250 east then OH-60 south. Al M. rode with us down to Ashland, OH where he peeled off. We got gas in Hayesville, OH and took a rest. This was the longest leg of the day at 124 miles.
Monday’s ride started off well (except for a destination snafu–more on that later), with 9 bikers showing up early at Kmart. With Hines Drive closed, everyone heeded the warning Charles sent out for me (thanks Charles) and arrived at Kmart in plenty of time.
Another Stockbridge/Suzi Greenway ride is “in the books” as they say…
It was a beautiful evening for a ride, and ride we did! By 6:30 we had 12 riders on 12 motorcycles filing out in 82F warmth…
