If you haven't heard, this year Climate Ride (normally a west and east coast ride) is coming to the Midwest this September.
Route from Grand Rapids to Chicago over the course of 4 days and fully supported. I've toured most of these parts in Michigan and it is really beautiful (and lots of breweries!).
More info at http://www.climateride.org/events/midwest
I'm the team captain for Team Active Trans and we're hosting some information events for people who want to learn more about the ride, touring or just meeting fellow bike tourers.
Next Wednesday, March 12 at Schuba's -
Wednesday, April 23 at REI -
