Hey! Shout out if you're in mid-Michigan and would be interested in gathering someplace in/around Lansing. I'll organize. :)

I'm interested.  Summer works best for me.  Thanks Kahryn for starting this.  There's several Michigan posters on the forum now, definitely enough to get a group together.  If you want to get together sooner it's possible I could do it over the high school spring break.  Actually, that might be a really good time for me.

My wife and I would be up for a meet up. We're in Lansing. June would be better as March weekends are filling up with commitments.

Interested! I'm just south of Lansing, June would probably be better for me. I'll keep checking back for dates. Thanks

Ok everyone I'm looking at Saturday, June 10 for a meet-up. Let's take location suggestions! I'll start.

 - The river front area near City Market in Lansing and Valhalla Park in Holt are both accessible by River Trail, although apt to be a little crowded;

or

- Padgett Park in DeWitt and Burchfield Park in Holt are big natural areas (I know Burchfield also allows beverages if they're in cans) that are a bit off the beaten path, somewhat less accessible by bike.

I believe all four of those places have grills and picnic tables. I'll take a handful more suggestions and then we can put it to a vote.


I'll also throw out some proposed dates for a monthly meet-up for those who are available:

March: Sunday the 12th at 1pm, hiking in Anderson Park
April: Saturday the 8th at 10am, walk the River Trail (meet at parking lot at Grand River and Turner in Old Town)
May: Date TBD; group ride and knowledge share re: bike riding skills and maintenance
June: Date TBD; potluck party and knowledge share re: gardening/canning/home brewing etc.

Thanks for organizing this! June 10 would probably work for me. I am familiar with Burchfield, I mountain bike so I've been there before as well as Anderson park. It's also a little closer for me, I'm in Jackson, however I'm fine with the Lansing location too. Is anyone planning to bring spouse? Kids? or just flying solo? Thanks

I am just north of Lansing and am interested in meet-ups. Hopefully I can make some of the ones planned. Is there a specific location you will be at in Anderson Park? Don't know if I can make that one yet, but I would like to.

June 10 works for us. We're excited to meet some more like-minded folks!

My wife and I planned the Lansing Bike & Seek last year (a scavenger hunt around the city on bikes) and this year's will probably take place on a Saturday in June, but we won't pick the 10th.

Hey ya'll I'm still eyeing this thread. I'm scheduled to work April 8th and June 10th. No worries.

Is anyone available to do a river trail walk the weekend before April 8th? On either April 1st or 2nd (that is Saturday or Sunday) at the same time of 10am?

I'm still holding June 10! Location TBD a few weeks in advance.

April 8 actually no longer works for me, but I'll stay posted to see if I can tag along to the walk on 4/1 or 2!

So glad more people are finding this thread. Very excited to be laying the foundation for a local community.

Are we still on for April 2nd @ 10am @ the fish ladder parking lot? It should be a nice day for a walk.

I am in the Lansing area, would be interested in meeting up.

Not sure if June 10th will work for me, as I am traveling all week leading up to that. It would be great to get a semi-regular meeting going in Lansing (2-3 times a year?)
