611 West Michigan Ave. Kalamazoo
KBC has organized a fun/goofy event to help “open” and “advertise” and celebrate opening the new Bike Lane on Michigan Ave. We’re calling it “Le Tour de Lane.” The Start/Finish will be at Pedal North, near the west end of the Bike Lane, where KBC will provide cider and donuts. A few details:
- The Bike Lane will (almost certainly) be open by Nov. 4th. The City of Kalamazoo assured us that everything – including bicycle traffic signals – will be operational by the end of October.
- Pedal welcomed the Start/Finish with open arms.
- We will have route maps and “experienced” guides for groups to ride Le Tour.
- If it’s pouring rain or dumping snow we will cancel at the last minute.
- We hope a few riders will have Go-Pros to record the action, and maybe somebody can find a drone for some overhead shots.
- Finally…this will be a LOW KEY (slow roll) event.
