Ride United 2018 Recap

Muskegon Metro Area News

    June 16, 2018 marked the 7th annual Ride United charity cycling event hosted by the United Way of the Lakeshore. The ride begins at downtown Muskegon, MI followed by four different return points and returns to Muskegon. A rider can pick any of the four routes - 6 Miles (North Muskegon), 25 miles (Pioneer Park, North Muskegon), 50 miles (Whitehall, MI), or 100 miles (Silverlake, MI). Its proceeds help support programs that promote health, education and financial stability for residents of Muskegon, Oceana and Newaygo counties.

  About 150 cyclist signed up for the event while 25 of them signed up for the 100 mile ride. It was a rainy morning, and raining hard at times, but that did not stop participants from showing up. Sign up began at 7am in the morning and there were quite a few people there waiting already. The official start time for the 100 miles ride was 8am but some of them left shortly after their registration. By 9am all the groups has left and we followed along to give you a peek of what it's like.





Thank you for all the participants and volunteers who made it a memorable event.
