Rotary Club of Cadillac White Pine Ride 2023
Ride the scenic north end of the White Pine Trail with Rotary Club of Cadillac & friends. Support the trail and Rotary while having a great time riding with family and friends. We suggest you time your ride departure to return between 1-3 p.m. for a picnic, to be served at the downtown market. If ride day the weather is inclement, we encourage riders to find another time to ride later on Saturday or on Sunday. And still plan to join us for the picnic with live entertainment to be held at the Cadillac Commons Market regardless of the weather. NOTE: This year’s ride will have a 3.5-mile gravel detour just south of Tustin due to an ongoing project to replace a culvert. If you plan to ride to our Tustin rest stop or beyond, that will add up to 7 miles of gravel. The gravel detour is also hilly. We recommend you ride a bike on which you are comfortable riding on gravel.
The Cadillac Rotary White Pine Ride welcomes bikers of all levels to enjoy one of Michigan’s most scenic rail trails while supporting the continuing development of this beautiful and historic resource. This year’s ride will be held Saturday September 16 to coincide with the brilliant fall colors along the trail. The later date will also better accommodate a short trail detour near Ashton while a culvert is being replaced.
Half of rider registration fees support this resource and other Rotary projects. Half goes for ride support and gear (SAG), food, and shirts.
