Handlebar Happy Hour Is This Week
By Barbara Schmid
Our local weather forecast shows a rainy week ahead, which is one more reason to join us for Handlebar Happy Hour, Wednesday, 5-7 p.m. at City Sen Lounge in the City Flats Hotel, 83 Monroe Ctr. NW, Grand Rapids 49503.
Bike racks will be set up for those hearty folks who ride in rain, sleet and snow. Or, for optimistic cyclists banking on sunshine.
If you come by car, the closest parking garage is the Monroe Center ramp at Ionia Ave NW & Louis St NW. It's the one that's free for the first hour if you arrive before 6 p.m.
Guests of HHH this week will get a first peek at a fat tire bike frame being donated by 616 Bicycle Fabrication and being equipped by Freewheeler Bike Shop. The bike will be given away at a raffle drawing at New Belgium Brewing's Grand Rapids Clips Beer and Film Tour, June 21.
Freewheeler is also providing HHH door prizes!
We'll have a brief announcement at 6 p.m.
And as always, you can count on a fun time, a few tall tales about commuter rides and recent races, many raised mugs and an excuse to get downtown mid-week.
