World Record Attempt : Longest Bicycle Parade(s)
June 9 at 9:30am and 10:15am
In 2016 Ludington broke the Guinness World Record for the Longest Ice Cream Sundae and in 2017 Ludington broke the record for the Most Sand Angels Created Simultaneously. This year, Ludington is attempting to break two records! Grab your bike and join us along the lakeshore as we attempt to break the Guinness World Records for the “Longest Line of Bicycles (Static)” and “Longest Single Line of Bicycles (Moving)”. Register to participate here. Registration and check-in will begin at 7:30am at Oriole Field, 700 West Tinkham Ave., Ludington, MI 49431.
5k and 10k runners will have plenty of time to run, relax and join the Shoreline Cycling Club to set two world records. The ride is NOT strenuous at all, it’s four miles, at a pace just above tipping over, there can be no gaps in the parade. Pick up your bike number plate from 5-8 Friday night and then show up before 9:30 after your run. Half marathoners, join the static line record, you can walk or ride your block three blocks and stand still, or put the kickstand down. It’s that easy.
