Slow it down, and enjoy a 15-mile ride through historic neighborhoods, the McPherson Park Bike Path, Crosstown Trail, Howell City Park and Lake View Cemetery. This ride has become a Howell Melon Festival Tradition and is our way of celebrating the life of Doctor Pat May.  The ride ends back at the Livingston County Courthouse for the post-ride, Howell Melon and Ice Cream.
