Rolling thru a quiet part of the MSU Campus by the Red Cedar River and Spartan Stadium.
Shot of one of the cyclists as we cruised along Harrison Rd. in E. Lansing.
One of the only pics I got capturing some of the emotion during the ride between the riders.
The daughter of Jack Evans, who was killed Sept. 13, 2002, by a LEGALLY BLIND driver. As her sign says "Don't assume drivers can see you even on straight flat open country roads." I would add, even in broad daylight. That's why I always dress in bright clothes and run both head & tail lights in strobe mode all the time.
A couple of the MSU Police bike patrol officers who helped our event run smoothly and safely. The officers would leap-frog the whole group from intersection to intersection to assure that the group stayed together. Thanks guys!
Another one of the police officers who helped out this year; he's from the Lansing Comm. College Police Dept.
Notice all the hand-signals at the intersections? Yep, we were following proper cycling rules.
My trusty early 70's green Schwinn that carried me on the RoS this year. What a joy to ride when you don't have anywhere to get to real fast.
Cruising down Albert Ave. thru downtown E. Lansing.
Carlos' very nice commuter bike w/ RoS signage heading down Mich. Ave. towards the Capitol.
Thomas Harpstead pulling the massive Bikes at Work 96" trailer w/ our signage; thanks Tom!
Lyndon Babcock, a Lansing resident and bicycle advocate who I believe was a founding member of the Chicago Bicycle Federation many years ago, rode with us on his trusty trike.
At 75 years of age and suffering from multiple sclerosis, Babcock has been unable to ride a traditional bike for two years, instead opting for a recumbent cycle.
