Back in the late `70s, every where you turned was a runner in a (fill in the blank) 10,000 Meter Run T-Shirt. Only 10,000 Meters, 6.2 miles? Get real! So in 1979, together with some friends in the Tri-County Bicycle Association of of Lansing, Michigan, we decided to give bicycle riders some bragging wear, and the 100,000 Meter T-Shirt Ride was born. The ride continues to this day. I have kept in touch with many friends from that time, but this was my first chance to catch the T-Shirt ride since the first time riding with some good friends and my son Justin. The ride is held the second Saturday in June and is in the rolling farmland between Lansing and Flint, Over 700 riders came out this year.
