Distance: 2.5 mi.
Notes: A memorial tribute bicycle ride in the honor of Randy Robinson, 52 of St. Johns, who passed away on June 11, 2016 after a crash with a motor vehicle outside of Grand Ledge, MI and in the honor and memory of the five bicyclists hit and killed along with four others seriously injured on June 7, 2016 in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The event will start in front of the State Capitol (main staircase facing east) and proceed in silence for a short ride around the downtown area for a couple miles at most and return to the same place at the State Capitol where memories and stories will be shared. We also hope that some of our State's legislators will attend to receive copies of the petition(s) that have been circulating and update us on the status of the pending bills in the Michigan House and Senate that will strengthen penalties and fines for motorists who hit and kill or injure bicyclists.

This date was chosen as it's the one day in July that legislators have as an optional session date.

This event is being hosted by the Tri-County Bicycle Association's Advocacy Committee: http://biketcba.org/advocacy
