Events in the month of January 2019
1/1/2019
Bike Ypsi First Ride In The First Hour (10th Annual!) – January 1st at 12:30am (yes… 30 minutes after midnight!), Arbor Brewing Ypsilanti (Corner Brewery), Norris at Forest. Get the year off right by riding in the first hour of the New Year on this annual ride! The ride leaves promptly at 12:30am.
 
Ride on low traffic residential streets. Lights (front and rear) mandatory. Ride will be approximately 6 miles long and take around 30 minutes. The start location is the Corner Brewery so people can warm up inside before the ride starts (and take in their free New Years party with the Doug Horn Jazz Trio along with a bonfire in the outdoor beer garden) and have a post-ride libation (the Corner Brewery is open to 2am). Ride leader is Bob at wolv...@gmail.com or 734-487-9058. PLEASE NOTE: Ride canceled if Winter Weather Advisory/Watch, or temperatures below 15 degrees, at midnight.
 
PS - Many people hear of this ride and think "that’s crazy, with all the drunks out on the road!!!” In past years, riders of this even have observed little if any car traffic during the ride and what traffic there is, you can see coming a long way out.
