You may have stumbled on it over the years. I mean, it's not every day you walk into a big public place like the mall and find a bunch of people riding stationary bikes with loud music playing, people screaming and cheering, wild costumes, fun themes and the smell of sweat in the air. You may have participated. Hey, Muskegon is a hot bed for people who are serious about their bikes! Be it Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter, we've got lots of beautiful areas for people on bikes. Trails, dunes, bike paths and scenery abound and our bike community works together to support each other as well as the areas they ride. We're talking about "The Ride" put on by Mercy Health and while you may have seen or heard about it, did you know? It's not only a great event, it's a HUGE part of benefiting cardiac care in Muskegon!

We grow up with what we know. Most of us also grew up in a time that was a little different when we stayed in touch in ways that were not quite so digital. We heard things like bells and horns that told us to get home...of course, there was always the "street light" rule about being home before dark. Getting the "what for" from your friends mom generally meant double was coming at home and things like a "phone tree" were the way word got around town to let you know what was going on. We grow up...we move away...life evolves and then we look back and wonder "what happened" when we go back and see what was and what's become.

It was a great night to celebrate a couple of things. First, the one year anniversary of Muskegon Tonight Live! Yep! January of 2019 we got things underway in the middle of the "Polar Vortex" we were enduring at the time. Not many people were out doing anything for a good week at the time, but we had a decent crowd turn out for our first episode and outside of the "little teeny tiny" problem Andy had in December, we've made Hometown Hospitality venues our home since! Both Smash and Pub 111 in Whitehall have been outstanding and we're going to be back all year at both!
It’s always a sincere pleasure to meet with truly talented, inspiring people in our West Michigan community...that is why it was so great sitting down with two of the most talented, inspiring people I know….Trent Klairter and Deirdra Ross.
