The Thursday night ladies' group ride starts out of a new location for the month of June - John Ball Park. This park is near downtown Grand Rapids and has a pretty nice zoo with a ropes course and a zip line. It's not a bad zoo to visit. However, if you're in Michigan, I recommend the Detroit Zoo. It's a very large zoo with lots of different animals and an impressive polar bear exhibit.
The ride was a lot of fun, as usual! 30 miles, part of which was on the course for the 100 Grand. It was fun to see a little bit of what I would be facing in a couple days.
After the ride, one of the women pulled chips and cooler of Oberon and Corona out of the back of her van. Nice, huh?! Biking and beer, together again!
