    I live in Clay (Algonac) and would be interested in getting together for a ride. A rails to trails ride or stony creek would be nice, but I'd be more interested in a pub crawl or city cruise night. The problem around here where I live is that there aren't many trails or bike friendly roads. Heck I'd even consider a Detroit ride (during the day) :D

    Well,I live N of 23 Mile Rd and E of Mound in Shelby Twp,I think you're quite a hike down I-94 from me.The closest entrance to the bike path is about 3 miles.I get on from 24 mile just E of Dequindre. Yates is about 3 miles W. straight up 23 mile Rd from me.I've taken many rides there,it is nice but can be way over crowded...I usually ride with the girlfriend but like to get out for a ride/drink/whatever with the guys too.

    There is also a trail that start at van dyke and hall road and follows the parks down to Utica and schoenherr. And it could become a bit of a pub crawl "down town" Utica is a short bike ride away from the trail head.

    I live in Ann Arbor but I work in Macomb Cty. I'm into joining a group ride sometime. Hines Drive on the west side (runs from Dearborn to Northville) is another great place to ride. Once a week I think it's closed to cars & the whole road is open to bikes. I was planning to bike to Billetproof this year (I usually bring a bike to the park), but they moved it to Milan Dragway.

    There's some cool spots in the city of Detroit I plan to ride someday--Riverwalk, the newish path along the river downtown (there's even a bike shop there with rentals), the Dequindre Cut was an abandoned sunken rail line that was a favored spot for graffiti artists, it's now a trail, but the graffiti remains. You can ride it from Eastern Market to Belle Isle, another good place to ride (& hang out & drink cold beverages). All these places are safe, during the daylight at least.

    Anyone interested in riding sometime on the 4th of July weekend. Thinking if the path that starts in heritage park (if the Clinton river recedes). Maybe meet up in the park in Utica next to the library.

    Let's bring this thread back from the dead. So is there any Detroit club? Oooor should we maybe start one with an "official" Facebook page and everything? (facebook makes everything official!) haha
