Top 50 Post Script

Yesterday was an "off" day in my training plan, so I have no quirky ride stories, deep thoughts about running or frustrations with swimming to post today.  I spent most of the evening helping the Hubby try to catch up with paperwork.  The most I can report this morning is that I'm tired and wish I was still in bed.

However, since I don't have any personal bikey goodness to write about, I thought I'd return briefly to the Bicycling Top 50 list.  After I reported on Grand Rapids ranking #36 this year, the Grand Rapids Press did a nice article about it.  It's cool to know that someone at the Press has an antenna out for bike related stories (or more probably, stories that make our city look good, right?).

Doesn't downtown Grand Rapids look pretty?!

A couple of my friends from the Thursday night ladies' ride are in this photograph of the Priority Health women's team cycling downtown by the Grand River.  And the article mentions the sponsorship by Bissell of both a professional and an amateur team.  Bissell is a Grand Rapids company - my father-in-law works there.  So many great little bikey connections!

  1. That's great that GR is making a biking list! It's where I bought my first two mountain bikes as an adult.

    Hubby and I went to school there (Calvin) and then left after he finished grad school. Still have a lot of fond memories of the fall colors, biking around Reeds Lake, and having brunch at the Cherie Inn in Easttown.

    I knew it was gettin' groovy when we left, but we needed the mountains. Enjoy!
