Rides And Events
Check this page often for updated listings of all types of cycling events in and around our area.

KLM Bike and Fitness are starting a new group ride for those who want to ride a paved trail with a group of riders who share the same enthusiasm for cycling without racing. We will be riding the picturesque River Bends/Dodge Park trail in a single loop format totaling approximately 16 miles. This all paved trail, has an “up north” feel with spectacular views along the Clinton River. We will be riding at a light aerobic pace depending on fitness level, with an emphasis on fun! This is a no drop ride - we will stop at a few points to regroup if necessary. All types of bikes are welcome. The first ride will be the Tuesday after Memorial Day, May 28. We hope to see you there!
KLM Hot Dog BBQ & Trail Ride
When: Sundays 6pm
Where: Diffrent Location Every week, Call KLM or check out Facebook for this weeks location!
This is a “trail” oriented mountain bike ride. We are going back to the reason we all fell in love with mountain biking, riding singletrack. We take our time on the climbs, regroup, and ride down as fast as we can. This ride is for intermediate to advanced riders. No drop. Rides will average about 10 miles at a social 10 mph pace. Full suspension is the best tool for this ride, although any mountain bike will do!
Slow and social on two track.
Fast on the singletrack with frequent stops to regroup.
Riders are encouraged to climb slow and descend faster.
Stony Creek: Meet us at the West Branch Parking lot F, just up the hill from the main trailhead.
Riverbends: We meet at Main Mountain Bike Parking off 22 Mile Road.
Addison Oaks: We meet at Main Mountain Bike Parking Inside Addison Oaks.
KLM's Thursday Dirt Gravel Road Ride
Formerly Known as "Duck Pond" Thursday Night Dirt "TND" is our weekly gravel road ride.

Both groups start together and the B leader and any B group riders will wait for anyone at the intersection of 28 Mile and Mount Vernon. If you are in the A group - just keep going there.
Depending on the speed of the two groups on any given night:
- The A may turn left at 34 mile for the hammer loop.
- The B group may turn right at 34 Mile so that the ride will finish at about the same time.
