Once the weather warms up, I’m ready to get on my bicycle and ride the country roads around Okemos and Williamston. I also enjoy bringing my bike to work and riding the Mike Levine Lakelands Trail State Park. Last summer I rode past Munith to the west and way past Gregory to the east. I found information about this rail trail and other Michigan rail trails in The Official Rails-to-Trails Conservancy Guidebook and at traillink.com.
This year, my goal is to ride to the end of the rail trail in Hamburg and learn more about bicycle maintenance. I can’t do much beyond changing a tire right now, but fortunately we have many books on bike maintenance to guide me.
Another reason I’m excited about bikes this year is that soon you’ll see a new bike rack in the front of the branch! The rack was funded with a grant by the 5 Healthy Towns Foundation. It’s a secure place to park your bike or scooter when you visit. Hope to see you soon!
