An annual, one day, ride across Indiana. Here’s a link from which you can get more information.
This year’s Hilly Hundred will be October 17-19 in Ellettsville, IN. For event details, visit http://www.hillyhundred.org/. I haven’t done this ride yet, but by all accounts, this is a truly exceptional event.
UPDATE (4/8/2009): Construction is now well underway for Phase II, which will continue this trail all the way to Darden Rd. Notably, Darden Rd now has its own separated bike / pedestrian path as well. If we can manage to get the LaSalle Trail to extend north over Cleveland Rd, we’ll be well on our way to an impressive trail network.
My wife and I spent this past weekend doing a bit of biking in Northern Michigan. Charlevoix-Boyne City-Petoskey is beautiful with a wide variety of biking opportunities from paved path riding to some great single track.
Out for coffee one morning, I picked up a copy of the Northern Express Weekly, a free, independent newspaper. What caught my eye? Splashed on the front page was a picture of a guy with a single speed and the headline, “A Bike’s Best Friend: John Robert Williams Offers a New Direction for Commuters.” What bike commuting enthusiast wouldn’t grab such a publication?
The title of this post is “A Sermon for the Choir” and Anne Stanton’s article about Williams, his bike fleet (over 20 bikes), and his commuting habits is just that: a sermon about bike commuting that we’ll all read and nod our heads to in agreement.
Here’s a link to the whole article; I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
