INDEPENDENCE DAY CLUB BIKE RIDE and PICNIN! … previously known as the 4th of July Bike Ride and Picnic … but it’s not on the 4th … and we didn’t want to confuse anyone (especially Guy Benson who still insists that he was there for the signing of the Declaration of Independence … he's the ‘Guy’ in the yellow vest). 

So, get ready to pump up those bike tires for the Annual Lake Cadillac Bike Ride and Picnic on Saturday, July 6th.  The Annual Lake Cadillac Bike Ride gets underway at 10 a.m. at the Rotary Pavilion (Band Shell) on the shores of Lake Cadillac in downtown Cadillac.  The trip around Lake Cadillac is about seven miles.  For those who wish to pedal the figure eight and go around Lake Mitchell, plan an additional 13 miles to your excursion.

Following the bike ride there will be plenty of time to rest-up before the picnic at the Caberfae Ski Club.  Picnicking begins at 5:30 pm in the afternoon with cocktails, swapping lies and comfort food.  Please bring a dish to pass, your own beverage, place settings, and lawn chairs.  The club will spring for burgers and brats.  The Senior Grill Team promises to not interfere with the culinary art of those with the flippers.

The bike ride and picnic are being coordinated by two generations of the Demek family.  If you’re planning to attend, please RSVP to Sandy Demek at. (734) 591-0586, or email her at: sdemek@gmail.com.  Join the fun!  Be a firecracker … don’t be a dud!
