There's a burning desire to get out of the house. How much TV can you binge on? And with vaccinated people getting past the two week completion date, more and more people are ready to venture out, to venture forth. So the timing of Kalamazoo Bicycle Week is good. It starts May 8th and goes until the 15th.
You'll see the Kal-Haven Trailblazer not happening this year (can't have that many people together-best to err on the side of caution) but there are plenty of other events to get some exercise and some outdoor-ness, if that's a word.
