Camp Blodgett is celebrating 100-years of providing recreational & educational activities to children experiencing poverty. This year, we adopted an organization called "Elves & More" who provided bicycles to low-income children living in the 49507 zip code, one of the primary communities we serve. To celebrate our centennial and this new partnership, we are hosting a bike ride along the Lake Michigan shoreline, out & back.
The entrance fee of $50 supports Camp Blodgett's ability to provide their campers with lessons on learning to ride a bike, along with access to our fleet of bicycles. Through our programs, we are able to share the joy, confidence & freedom that comes with riding a bike!
To entice everyone from beginning explorers to those cyclists that spend weekends on their trusty steeds, this ride will include your choice from 20 to 62 miles (a metric century!). The fun part is that since it's 18+Up, 2 of the stops will be at breweries heading south just along the bike path, Bring your ID's!
18+Up & Helmet Required
