Bicycle Sale at Ann Arbor Huron High School


Saturday, May 3 will be the date of a large used bicycle sale at Ann Arbor Huron High School. The sale is being held to raise money for the Huron Band 2014 France trip. It will also benefit the community at large by providing access to a large quantity of used bikes all at one place as well as a way for people to sell their bikes. The sale will run from 11:00am to 3:00pm in the Huron High School cafeteria, 2727 Fuller Rd, Ann Arbor.

Additional details are available at the AA Huron Band France Trip site, http://huronbandfrancetrip2014.org, and select upcoming events.

In addition to donating, selling and buying bikes, the Ann Arbor Huron High School would like to invite AABTS members to volunteer during the event. Volunteers will be asked to provide advice about bikes and help with bike repair/tuning. If you have questions or would like to volunteer, contact Clark McCall at a2bikesale@gmail.com or 734-845-2429. Thank you for the help!

ride of silence   On May 21, 2014 at 7:00 PM, the Ride of Silence will begin in North America and roll across the globe. Cyclists will take to the roads in a silent procession to honor cyclists who have been killed or injured while cycling on public roadways. Although cyclists have a legal right to share the road with motorists, the motoring public often isn't aware of these rights, and sometimes not aware of the cyclists themselves.

The Ride of Silence is a free ride that asks its cyclists to ride no faster than 12 mph, wear helmets, follow the rules of the road and remain silent during the ride. The ride aims to raise the awareness of motorists, police and city officials that cyclists have a legal right to the public roadways. The ride is also a chance to show respect for and honor the lives of those who have been killed or injured.

AABTS Ride Captain: Jim Lee, leej_48103@yahoo.com or 734.604.0696
Distance: 8 miles
Notes: Ride departs 7pm from Recreation Park, corner of Oakwood and Congress Streets, in Ypsilanti. This is a joint Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti area ride.
