Tour has begun!
Our kickoff event was at the super friendly Velo City bike shop in downtown Holland, Michigan. This weekend kicks off Tulip Time, which means a gorgeous flower display everywhere and a ton of foot traffic on main streets, including many people wearing full Dutch costume! It was quite a scene. The event was lots of fun. Our organizer, local bike advocate Meika Weiss, wasn’t sure how many people would be excited about the event, but it ended up selling out, with about 50 smiling people talking about bike routes and riding bikes with kids on Holland’s not always bike-friendly streets.
Aaron and others took some photos which you can see on the Facebook page for the event.
We’re off to Grand Rapids tonight (we have a total of six events here in Michigan!)—and onward from there. True to form, Elly is still scrambling to use every moment of Internet connection to organize a few more last minute dates—will something come together next week in Rochester? Sure looks like it. Can’t wait!
Hope to meet a lot of you along the way. Check out our schedule and come eat, talk bikes, and enjoy.
