The 7th Annual Kalamazoo Bike Week was a success. The weather was generally good and attendance at the events was great.  Thank you to all event organizers, volunteers and attendees - we had great fun.

Planning for Bike Week 2019 (May 11-18) began in June 2018 -- and more than ever, will encompass events across Kalamazoo County.  If you want to share an idea, help plan, make an announcement or organize an event during Bike Week, please contact Paul Selden at info@bikefriendlykalamazoo.org.

The last public planning meeting in 2018 is scheduled for October 25, 2018, 4-5pm at the Portage District Library (Austin Lake Room), 300 Library Lane, Portage MI 49002.  If necessary, we will also meet as a group in 2019, with dates yet to be determined. After that most of the planning and implementation of the great ideas we surfaced throughout our meetings held during the summer and fall of 2018 will be in the hands of our wonderful individual event organizers. We may be able to accommodate additional events and announcements up to about four weeks before Bike Week begins.

Please watch this page for additional updates.

Have a safe and fun riding season.  Hope to see you out there!

Kalamazoo Bicycle Club - Monday Night Ride

  • Texas Drive Park Texas Dr Kalamazoo, MI, 49009 United States (map)

Join the Kalamazoo Bicycle Club on their Monday night ride. 

Monday Evening Ride departs from the Texas Drive Park. There are typically four ride groups, listed below, which should provide ride paces to suit abilities of all riders. The first two rides listed are “no drop” rides.

15-20 mile group at 12-15 mph (Schoolcraft Ride); recommended for riders who are learning how to ride in groups.

25-30 mile group at 16-17 mph average (Lawton V Ride; RideWithGPS map of route is at this link). This ride is recommended for experienced riders who want to ride on hillier terrain.

25-30 mile group at 17-18 mph (Schoolcraft Ride); recommended for riders who are used to riding in groups and who want to ride over flatter terrain.

25-30 mile group at 20-22 mph average (Lawton W Ride; RideWithGPS map of route is at this link). This ride is recommended for more experienced riders who want to ride faster and on hillier terrain.

25-30 mile group at 22+ mph average; clearly for more experienced riders who want to ride (even) faster and on hillier terrain.
