Rides and Events

Check this page often for updated listings of all types of cycling events in and around our area. Rides require, at minimum, an appropriate bike in good working order, water, and a helmet. We suggest a spare tube, energy food, maybe a little cash in case we stop, and your biggest smile! Many rides are held subject to weather. It's a good idea to confirm dates, time and any specific requirements, too. We'll see you out there — and have fun!

Thursday Night Mountain Bike Ride

Each Thursday night we go out for a mountain bike ride at different trails throughout the state. Riders from all ages and levels of experience are welcome to join in on the fun.
The Denny's Central Park MTB Crew consists of employees, customers, and more importantly, friends of the shop.

Our shop closes each Thursday at 5pm and after that we get to the trail head as soon as we can.
After our ride we go to a local restaurant for suds and grub.

It's always more fun on the trail with a group of riders and obviously a lot safer.

We hope you can join us!

Girls' Bike Night (sorry guys)

Looking for an easy-paced group ride designed to be fun not fast? Then dip your wheels in Wednesdays.

Weather permitting, we'll ride every Wednesday during July and August. (No ride July 15th)

We will depart from Denny's Central Park Bikes on Central Park Drive in Okemos at 6 p.m. then head to the trail at Nancy Moore Park, from there taking sidewalks and neighborhood streets until we reach low-traffic roads.

Build your skills and your confidence!

Expect to ride 15-20 miles at an easy pace, starting at 6, and ending about 8pm.

Helmets are a must!
