Family and friends with help from Friends of The Pere Marquette Rail Trail and local sponsors will again be putting on a family friendly bicycle ride of up to 62 miles (metric century) to honor the wishes of Howard Schoenherr, known by many as "Putter". His wish was to ride 80 miles on his 80th birthday, December 27, 2012. Howard was a very avid bicyclist who enjoyed people and our Rail Trail. As many know, Howard passed away in September of 2012 at age 79 with his wish unfulfilled. Those of us who held him dear are making the Howard's Friend bicycle ride an annual ride starting, this year at Emerson Park, and to include all ages and skill levels, which is just the way he would have wanted it to be. Plan to ride 5, 10, 20, 40 or 62 miles but plan to come! So please ....SAVE THIS DATE....more to come.
