Chairperson Chip Moore said that we were coming to the finish line for the first ever Lenawee Bike Tour as he stood in front of one of 4 banners that will be displayed at Saturday’s Tour which will kick off at 8am at St. John’s Lutheran Church at the corner of M52 and Valley Road near the Kiwanis Trail.


Some great sponsors, Chip said, have made this event possible. What began as a 2-day event has been narrowed down to one since so few bikers registered for the Sunday event at Heritage Park. We are still very pleased with the 50-60 registrants who will be participating in Saturday’s event. Early registration will begin tomorrow afternoon from 6-9pm in front of the Adrian Armory. Registration on Saturday morning will begin at 6:30am with those bikers participating in the 60 and 100 mile event taking off first about 8am.


A packet will be given to all bikers and consist of a tour number, wrist band coordinating with the route they signed up for, coupons for free drinks and food and a goodie bag that various sponsors contributed to. Several stations manned by the Boy Scouts of America thanks to Jacob Maxson will be placed along the routes where bikers can stop for water, apples and nutrition bars. A group of young boys from Maurice Spear will be at MIS to handout various items to bikers entering the grounds.


The event on Saturday, Chip said should be wrapped up by 2pm. He predicted beautiful weather, sunny and in the 80's! He thanked everyone who has volunteered and worked on the committee. A special thanks to Chip and Ted Keating for all of their work on the event as a ton of work has gone into making it hugely successful its very first year!
