Spring metric - wheelin'

 

Wheelers’ 2018 Metric had nearly 200 participants enjoying three scenic rides originating from Comlara Park. Thanks to all the riders for your support of the WBRP Bike Coop. And a special thanks to the many volunteers that made this event possible!  Watch for information regarding the 2019 Spring Metric details early in the New Year.  PDF and GPS route maps available below if you want to relive the experience!

The Metric offers three courses of about 20 miles each.  Each one begins and ends at a well-stocked rest stop at McLean County Comlara Park, home of beautiful Evergreen Lake.  Riders can decide whether to ride 20, 40, 60 miles, or the 6 mile Family Route.  Roads are sometimes challenging in the lovely Mackinaw River Valley, but the views are worth every pedal stroke.  There’s a fair change you’ll see white-tailed deer, red-tail hawks and other wildlife on your ride.


The Metric is the Wheelers’ signature fundraising event for community bicycling-related programs.  This year, proceeds from the Metric will benefit the newly formed Bike Co-op located in Bloomington [map it].  The Bike Co-op is one of the many programs offered by the West Bloomington Revitalization Project (WBRP).  See Pantagraph article for a primer on the Bike Co-op and its Earn a Bike Program. WBRP Bike Coop
