Participants will have the opportunity to view several species of birds during a bike ride on the newest section of the Kalamazoo River Valley Trail. Lead Interpretive Naturalist Dan Keto will guide riders on the trail and point out birds at this peak time for birding.
Kalamazoo’s first ever Alley Cat Bicycle Race! We (FXD269 – a group of dedicated fixed gear cyclists) are calling it the Sin City Alley Cat, because a role of the dice may make the difference in winning and, well, not winning! There is no set course for the race which also plays to the lady luck theme. Navigation skills and efficent riding are key (www.fixed269.com).
