Come Join the Kappa's on the “Lifestyles of Oakland County” Run, sponsored by the Doc’s (Radio and X-Ray) on behalf of Turbo Mike. (A return of his run from 2009). The only MKC sponsored run in September 2013. There was a time, not half a decade ago, when Oakland County, MI was the second most wealthy county in the United States. Drive past many of the magnificent properties of Oakland County.

A beautiful 88 mile ride from Bloomfield Hills to Chelsea, MI. Lots of winding, tree-lined roads along lakes. See the 1837 Franklin Cider Mill, and the villages of Hamburg, Lakeland, Pinckney, Gregory, Stockbridge and Chelsea.

Ride will proceed rain or shine, top up or top down.

The ride will be of the parade/caravan type. Turn-by-turn directions will be provided. One scheduled 20 minute break will occur at the midpoint of the ride (about 75 minutes) at a McDonald’s restaurant.

The ride will conclude at Cleary’s Pub in Chelsea, MI about 4 p.m. A menu can be viewed online at Clearys Pub - Home. Names will be drawn at dinner for prizes.

If any non-MKC members wish to join the ride, please E-mail Jim at [email protected] to ensure restaurant accomodations, door prizes and enough written materials.

5. The speed limit will be observed (and occasionally adhered to, particularly in town or congested/residential areas.)
6. Collector points will follow any instances where we may momentarily become separated.
