Bike Friendly Kalamazoo | Fall Bike Celebration Ride & Dinner
September 21 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 pm EDT
Unexpected Fundraising Opportunity
A donor who believes in supporting the work of SWMMBA and other eligible regional cycling clubs and advocacy groups has offered to make an unexpected donation based on how many of their members supply their affiliation online when registering for BFK’s Fall Bike Celebration Ride and/or Awards & Recognition Dinner on/by September 17 at www.fallbikecelebration.org. The Ride and Dinner are on Saturday, Sept. 21 in scenic Southwest Michigan.
Depending on how many of us register AND declare our affiliation online, we could receive $100-250-$500 or more just by doing what we love to do anyway while supporting some great bike and community charitable causes at the same time. The donation is based on $5 for each registered rider and/or dinner-goer. This is above and beyond BFK’s publicly advertised “Great Clubs, Great Riders” and LMB’s $1 per Rider program, but in the same spirit.
The Ride is on Saturday, Sept. 21 with routes in the rural area to/from Vicksburg, MI. The routes will take in Shipshewana IN, Climax, Scotts Mill Park with additional loops covering the photogenic Vicksburg Quilt Trail. There is a family trail route and kid’s bike parade, too. An Ice Cream Social should be fun the night before, together with live music in the village and other attractions on Friday. Bike Friendly Kalamazoo has organized a Dinner that evening that might give us insights as to how BFK involves local officials in its advocacy. The Schedule is packed with these and other activities from Friday through Sunday.
If you want to check it out, be sure to mention your affiliation online by September 17, when you register for the Sept. 21 Ride and/or Dinner at www.fallbikecelebration.org
