Novi Nights, Lakeshore Park, Tuesdays @ 6:30

Postby Loren » May 13th, 2010, 10:14 pm

Folklore has the "Novi Nights" group ride starting on a blisteringly cold snowy Tuesday evening in November 2002.

Since then, a hearty group of bikers has continued this tradition, meeting at the park each Tuesday evening at 6:30, weather permitting, for a 6:45 ride start. In the depths of winter the group may be small, perhaps only a few people on snowshoes. On hot summer nights, there may be 50 or more riders.

Please join us - this is the perfect beginner-friendly group ride, stopping at several points to regroup and usually with a designated sweeper to ensure no one is left behind. Libations following at the nearby Lakeview Grill. For all of us, there was a first group ride - make next Tuesday yours!

Just checked out the trail... Unfortunately, way too wet and muddy to ride. Some of us are still meeting at the front lot to do a road ride. Not singletrack, but better than the couch.

First time out on Lakeshore and its a nice trail with something for everyone. Enjoyed the ride last night. I'll have to bring the fiance out next time. Can't believe a trail like this is only 10 minutes from work.

This is stupid...this ride will never take off :roll: :lol: :lol: :lol:


Amazing to think of all the highs and lows this ride has endured over the years. Thanks to all my OT's (Original Treefarmers).


I'll have to try and make it out there again sometime soon

The trail at Lakeshore Park is still really, really wet from all of the recent rain. We are already planning on canceling the group ride for Tuesday 6/8. Instead of riding, a group of us are planning on going out to do some routine trail maintenance... trimming, clearing any downed trees and some mud hole repair.

Due to the amount of damage from all of the wet weather at the Tree Farm/Lakeshore Park, we will not be riding there tonight... even if the weather is nice. If the weather does cooperate we will ride at Commerce (Hickory Glen). If it is a little drizzly we will try to do some sort of a paved ride.

We plan on waiting out the wet weather and then doing a lot of trail work to get it in decent shape again. If you feel that you must ride at Lakeshore, please try to go straight through the center of the many mud puddles. Riders are going around them and even creating bandit lines all over the park to avoid the mud, causing the trail to get really wide in spots. If you're hardcore enough to ride a muddy trail, you should be hardcore enough to go straight through it!

Lots of rain in Novi last night, so the ride will be postponed yet again.
