Small Town Halls – the GLRR 2016 Landmark Ride Destination Theme!

The Great Lakes Road Riders’ 2016 Landmark Ride destination theme was recently voted upon. There were 12 different landmark destination theme ideas discussed, and the top three were marinas, both along the Great Lakes coastal region and inland ones as well, small town halls, the smaller the better, and towns with strange names. On January 10th during a lunch gathering, the lunch attendees voted from that top three listing and ultimately chose small town halls.

Efforts are now underway to research and select 20 small town halls in Michigan’s Lower Peninsula. An additional three or four small town halls will be selected in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, and another one or two small town halls will be selected in a state that borders on one of the Great Lakes, as well as possibly somewhere in Canada. Ultimately, there will be 25 designated 2016 Landmark Ride destinations. The idea is to have the 2016 Landmark Ride event up and running by March 13th. The 2016 Landmark Ride particulars will be posted-up once everything is finalized in preparation for the March 13th event start date.

The Great Lakes Road Riders’ 2016 Landmark Ride event will run from March 13th through to November 1st. And during the November 13th lunch gathering, two lucky landmark ride participants will win some money.

Three Different Fall Colors Rides for Oct. 2015!

As of late September 2015, there are at least three different Fall Colors Rides set-up for October 2015.  Those will be some great opportunities to get out and enjoy the highways, byways, and roadways of Michigan during the brightly colored Fall season. We invite you to check them out, pick one, and join-in on one of those Fall Colors Rides!  Or better still, try to attend all three Fall Colors Rides!
