The Rotary Club of Grosse Ile is proud to present our 2nd annual Tour de Ile bicycle ride on Sunday, September 25, 2016. This year we will be offering three routes as well as a kayak tour. All bike routes start and end at the Airport Hangar in beautiful Grosse Ile, Michigan, located at 9601 Groh Road. Registration for all tours will take place at the hangar and will open an hour before each suggested start time, beginning at 7am. All courses will be open until 1pm. Lunch will be served at the hangar from noon to 2pm.
The Metro Park Route - 54 miles - this course will open at 8am with an escorted start. The last recommended start time for this ride is 8:45am
The Lake Erie Metro Park Route - 33 miles - this course will open at 9am with an escorted start. The last recommended start time for this ride is 9:45am
The Grosse Ile Route - 19 miles - this course opens at 10am with an escorted start. The last recommended start time for this ride is 11am.
The Kayak Tour will be a 2 hour guided tour (the route will be determined on the weather conditions - calm waters will go on the river; windy conditions will stay on the canals through the Gibraltar Bay and Elba Mar Canals). Kayak registration should be done by 8:30am, to give participants time to arrive at the Grosse Ile Yacht Club to launch by 10am.
Stay tuned for information on entertainment that will be provided at the event.
