FAT TIRE FRENZIE CLUB RIDE
FREE TO ALL RIDERS
Location: Cherry Street Elementary School, 2657 Foreman St. SE. Lowell Mi 49331
Start: Ride will start at 9:00am
Distance: Varies upon how far you want to ride. Starting at the school we’ll connect to the unimproved Flat
River Valley Rail Trail and head north to Smyrna onto Belding and Greenville then back to the school. Were
setting up a rest station at the Depot in Belding. If you don’t want to ride all the way to Greenville go ahead
and turn back. The Lowell area has several trials available to ride. This isn’t a race we wanted to create a FAT
TIRE gathering hoping to connect the new fat tire bike riders with others in the community as well as promote
our trail so come on FAT TIRE riders enjoy the day and meet others who enjoy this new style of bike.
National Trails Week: Our event is proud to be part of National Trails Week. Events like this will be held all over the country
celebrating the construction and use of our state and national trail system. Come on down be part of it.

Sounds like there will be several food and turnaround opportunities, too. Gotta like that.
