The Calvin Christian School Music Department and Volunteer In Service (VIS) are partnering together to host a bike ride, The Jeff Looman Memorial Bike Ride: Bike Out Loud!, on Saturday, May 3, 2014, in memory of Calvin Christian School's long-time band director, Jeff Looman, who passed away this past May.  Jeff shared a love of God, music, and biking, and this event will be a great way to celebrate his life!  There will be rides for all skill levels; a 3 mile ride, as well as 15 and 30 mile routes. The 3 mile ride will be on the trails at Millennium Park. The 15 and 30 mile routes will start and end at Millennium Park with rest stops halfway in both routes. To see a map of the routes click on either the 3, 15 or 30. (Maps will be available at the Park on May 3.)

Why "Bike Out Loud!"?  

Jeff's strong faith, his love for his family, and his passion for teaching always came out, often in a loud voice and always with a hearty laugh.  Jeff always lived life to the fullest, with an intentional focus on serving God by impacting as many lives as he could. Jeff lived his life and his faith out loud!  On May 3, join us to celebrate his life and "Bike Out Loud!"

All rides will begin and end at Millennium Park in Grand Rapids, MI.  Registration will begin at 8:00 a.m., with the rides beginning at 9:00 a.m. The "Bike Out Loud" Committee started working on the ride this past September, and we are looking forward to what we believe will be huge turnout.  Volunteers are needed, so if you are unable to ride, please consider volunteering.
