Join the Ann Arbor Bicycle Touring Society (AABTS) for a day of scenic bicycle touring over tree-lined, paved roads in Washtenaw, Ingham, Jackson and Livingston counties. The routes wind through rural and recreation areas on beautiful rolling terrain and vary enough to appeal to a broad range of bicyclists. The 100 mile ride famously passes through Hell ! (Michigan, that is). Cold watermelon at the historic Waterloo Farm Museum stop (http://waterloofarmmuseum.org).
OHR riders can choose from several paved and dirt road routes. All rides start and end at Chelsea Fairgrounds in Chelsea, Michigan where you can finish your ride with a buffet lunch and live music.
For all rides the registration fee includes an end of ride buffet lunch and cold watermelon at Chelsea Fairgrounds from 11 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
Volunteers will provide fresh fruit and beverages at snack stops as early as 7:30 AM. The routes pass through several small towns where additional food and drinks can be purchased. You are encouraged to stop, rest and take a break while replenishing your energy and making new friends! Chilled watermelon and lunch will be served to riders at the Fairgrounds at the end of the ride.
There will be restrooms and/or porta-john facilities at all designated food stops
