Just wondering if anyone in the Michigan area is planning on doing the Midnight Ride from Grand Rapids to St.Ignace In August This will be the 29th running of the Ride. This will be the 1st time for me and my wife ..If you haven't heard of it Google Midnight riders its a huge fund raiser for cancer also ...

It raises money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. One of my closest cousins died from complications of that. All bad! :( Miss her....

I would love to go, but have to pass. Timing is all wrong. I hope you thoroughly enjoy yourselves though!!! Sounds like a great time and a worthy ride. :D :D Please let us know how the ride went when you get back. (fireworks pics ?)

I've gone the last two years. I plan on going this year too. It's a pretty good hike from home but a great ride for a great cause.

I combine this ride with a visit to my sister who lives in Perry. From there I go to meet up with a couple of riding buddies in Grand Rapids and do the ride. We then grab a couple of hours shut eye at a friends house in Petrosky, before splitting up, them to Gr.Rapids and me back to NY, going through Ohio, Pa., stopping in Buffalo to visit my dad, then home. On the way out I go through Canada, but the ride is boring other than a stop in Niagara Falls, St.Catherines, and Hamilton. Coming home through the states is a much better ride, even the Interstate parts.
