Well, some folks say that summer is over…not so fast! Still lots of time to enjoy the warmer weather!
That is why our next member meeting will be an outdoor event!

Monday, September 8th 6-9PM

This time we are heading to Wahlfield Trail – WMMBA! We’ll hit the trail for a lap or two starting around 6PM. Them head to the pavilion for some grill time. Brats, burgers and other goodie will be served! And hey, if you have a favorite dish to pass, bring it along.

Also, we will be talking about a few of the cool things the the WMMBA has coming up. Plus, we will have a special guest that evening. Pattijean McCahill from the Kent County Parks Foundation will be with us to talk about the role of the KCPF, how to increase awareness and participation of mountain biking in West MI. Also, she’ll outline a new acquisition, and brainstorm on a capital campaign to complete Wahfield sooner. That’s a lot of good info!

So, bring your bike, bring a friend, BYOB, maybe a chair and whatever else and join us.

The Score Bar and Grill is launching their new “Craft Beer” line and will be tapping 120 craft beers and they would like us to help out on their new venture.

So, for one night only, they will be giving back 10% of everything they sell to the WMMBA!

All we have to do is show up, have some good food and maybe a craft beer(or so) and they will be giving back to us!

To make sure we are hungry and thirsty we will be meeting beforehand at the Cannonsburg Ski Area Trail (WMMBA) for a group ride around 5:30PM.

We’ll have a nice ride and head over to the Score for fun, food and craft beer!
