8:30-9:00am: Riders gather at our ride meet up location:
49115 Pontiac Trail
Wixom, MI 48393
Please park your vehicle in the rear parking lot behind the restaurant.
9:00am-noon: Group Ride. Riders will enjoy two of Michigan’s most popular rail trails during this 20 mile ride as we enjoy mid-summer riding along both the Michigan Airline and West Bloomfield trails. These linked trails provide the backbone of the recently christened Great Lakes-To-Lakes Trail system connecting a series of rail trails traversing the lower portion of the Great Lakes state from Lake Michigan to Lake Huron. The ride will start and finish at the Wixom Station restaurant.

A section on their outdoor patio deck has been reserved for our group.
