Location:  
Contact:  
Description:  
Have you ever considered riding your bicycle across the
country? The state where you live? Across the county?
Probably not. So who are these “crazy folks” that do that sort of thing? Well, come join me as I explain what it takes to tour on the seat of a bicycle. I am Dick Gedert and I ride a bike. Come with me as I tour “Back to the Beginning” a trip to my hometown in Ohio and then take a trip down memory lane cycling the 1922 route of the
West Michigan Pike, the first major trunk line from Chicago to Mackinaw City, through Berrien and Van Buren Counties. Along the way I will help you discover some of the reasons why people tour by bike, the main types of touring, the gear that they use and the “road angels” that help them along their way.
We'll then explore the many different Backroads Bikeway
trails that are found in Harbor Country where you can take a day or overnight tour and enjoy the sights and attractions along and around the shores of Lake Michigan. You never know, you might just become one of those “crazy folks” and find a new adventure waiting for you on the seat of your bicycle.

Exploring Lake Michigan: A 1,000-Mile Walk on the Beach
In 2009, Loreen Niewenhuis walked completely around Lake Michigan, a 1,000-mile walk around the world’s fifth-largest lake. In her presentation, Niewenhuis will take you along the shores of the lake she loves with photos and video from her journey. She will illuminate the geology, natural history, and biology of the lake and also what threatens this massive ecosystem: invasive species, pollution, and destruction of wetlands. An MS in biological sciences, she raises important questions about preserving our wild places and protecting fragile ecosystems on which we all depend.

Presenter: Loreen Niewenhuis

Nature Series #2: Scenes from the Seat of a Cycle
Have you ever considered riding your bicycle across the
country? The state where you live? Across the county?
Probably not. So who are these “crazy folks” that do that sort of thing? Well, come join me as I explain what it takes to tour on the seat of a bicycle. I am Dick Gedert and I ride a bike. Come with me as I tour “Back to the Beginning” a trip to my hometown in Ohio and then take a trip down memory lane cycling the 1922 route of the
West Michigan Pike, the first major trunk line from Chicago to Mackinaw City, through Berrien and Van Buren Counties. Along the way I will help you discover some of the reasons why people tour by bike, the main types of touring, the gear that they use and the “road angels” that help them along their way.
We'll then explore the many different Backroads Bikeway
trails that are found in Harbor Country where you can take a day or overnight tour and enjoy the sights and attractions along and around the shores of Lake Michigan. You never know, you might just become one of those “crazy folks” and find a new adventure waiting for you on the seat of your bicycle.
