The 3rd Annual Howard’s Friend Ride

  • March 23 2015

The 3rd Annual Howard’s Friend Ride is Saturday April 25, 2015. Registration and breakfast is between 7:30-8:30am and the ride begins at 8:30am.

Family and friends of Howard Schoenherr, known by many as “Putter,” with the help of Friends of The Pere Marquette Rail Trail as well as local sponsors will be hosting a family friendly bicycle ride of up to 62 miles (metric century) to honor the wishes and memory of Howard. 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, hope to make the Howard’s Friend bicycle ride an annual ride. The ride starts at the Tridge and includes 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!

Registration is now open! Guarantee your long sleeve microfiber custom shirt by registering on or before April 1st.

Sponsorships are now available at the Howard’s Friend Ride website.
