After a rider meeting (and well-deserved round of applause for Barry, the Michigander coordinator!) some entertainment commenced in the school’s cafeteria.
Nancy, the MTGA Executive Director, led a “Get to Know You Game” where we learned there are riders here from all over the country including California, Oklahoma, Missouri, and Pennsylvania. Also, a few of the cyclists have ridden on other continents such as Europe and Asia. Way to go!
Pat and Jane McGinnis of McGinnis Video Productions gave a wonderful presentation about the Metz Fire of 1908. Riders will pass the historical marker on their ride to Alpena tomorrow.
All in all, it’s been a great night in Onaway. Tomorrow holds Mr. Potato Head, shipwrecks and a community festival. We can’t wait!
