Worst Day of the Year Ride 1/26/14

The weather outside is frightful, but a bike ride is so delightful. Bundle up and join us on a festive, winter ride around the streets of Ann Arbor.

Cycling legends Gary Fisher and Frankie Andreu will be joining us for this year's ride. Don't miss out on your opportunity to ride with these great cycling ambassadors!

The ninth annual Worst Day of the Year Ride will take place on Sunday, January 26th. This free event always promises to be a fun filled, snowy day of riding. We will offer a variety of routes for you to choose from including:

  • Polar Bear Ride- 40 miles  12:00pm
  • Polar Cub Ride- 20 miles  1:00pm
  • Abominable Snow Man Ride- Mountain Bike loop 1:00pm (dependant on trail conditions)
  • Reindeer Ride- 12 miles  2:00pm
  • Snowshoe Hare Ride- 6 miles  2:30pm

All rides will be lead by ride captains and will be at a casual pace. The Polar Bear ride will have a fast group leading the charge with moderate paced ride captains following the faster riders. You will be provided with route maps on the day of the event. All rides leave from the Kerry Town Farmer's market and end at the Arbor Brewing Company where there will be free hot soup, attended bike parking and cash bar. A full menu will also be available for those that want to purchase additional food.

Prizes & Giveaways

In years past there have been giveaways and prizes, and that will continue for 2014. We've been in contact with local businesses & bicycle vendors to gather up as many prizes and giveaways for the event as possible. Prizes will be distributed at the after party by a lottery drawing of those who pre-register for the event.  We'll post up prize information as we have it.
