The Covered Bridge Bike Tour, a success in Fallasburg pioneer village & Coldwater Rest Stop
By Emma Palova
Fallasburg- A total of 120 riders participated in the 25th annual Covered Bridge Bike Tour on Sunday, July 7 under the clear blue skies as the humid air chilled down at the one-room schoolhouse registration.
“Thanks to everyone! The 25THBike Tour was truly a great day. We couldn’t have done it without you,” said Ken Tamke, president of the Fallasburg Historical Society (FHS).
86 Total Registrations (48 Advance, 38 Walkups)
120 Total Riders (67 Riders Registered in Advance, 53 Riders Walked Up)
Among the favorite routes through the Kent County countryside was the 28-mile route from Fallasburg to Lowell past the Grand River, and along the Grand River Drive to Ada Covered Bridge.
Most of the participants found out about the bike tour from the Michigan League of Bicyclists.
Members of the Kalamazoo Bicycle Club Paul Guthrie picked the 100-mile route, while Gordy Vader rode the 62-mile route. They loved the homemade food at the Misner House Museum.
“The food is great,” Guthrie said. “We would appreciate re-assurance arrows and GPS map. It’s a great ride.
For Nancy Short who rode the 78-mile route, it was the first time on the CBBT.
“I ditched my friends behind,” she laughed. “I’ve never done a ride that has a homemade spaghetti dinner with tablecloths on the picnic tables.”

The Fallasburg Historical Society is pleased to announce and showcase a sparkling new website where you can explore online our collection of images and artifacts.
FHS President’s message
Our collaboration with Calvin College’s History Department began the project three years ago. Under the mentorship of Lowell Area Historical Museum’s Executive Director, Lisa Plank, Calvin student interns have been digitally cataloging our archived material; pictures, documents, and assorted pieces of memorabilia that tell the story of people and places in Historic Fallasburg Village and Vergennes Township.
This “spring cleaning” process has led to the rediscovery of many forgotten treasures tucked away in files. We’re still a work in progress, but will continue over the coming months to add to, and refine the site.

FHS president Ken Tamke holds a box with Women’s Cooperative yearbooks.
The treasure hunters: Lisa Plank, Ken Tamke and Calvin intern Grace Bolt.
Now begins the arduous task of properly storing and preserving our collection. What a nice convenience for students, scholars, and history buffs to be able to view it online, quite another thing to hold in your hand the actual essays and poetry John Wesley Fallas and his wife, Phebe Brown Fallas penned 170 years ago. Now both are possible!
The Fallasburg Historical Society will hold its Annual General Meeting, Monday June 17TH.
The meeting will be held at the Lowell Chamber of Commerce and will start at 7:00PM.
The purpose of our Annual General Meeting is a forum for our members, friends, and volunteers to lend their voice to our organization. We’re always looking for new ideas and fresh faces. Please consider getting involved. FHS needs you!

Thank you to all the volunteers and organizers who made the 24TH Annual Covered Bridge Bike Tour a smashing success. For doing your part to help preserve Historic Fallasburg Village with your registrations, thanks to all our riders, the largest turnout in several years. And, thanks to Mother Nature, you gave us the perfect day for everyone to explore some of West Michigan’s most beautiful scenery.
As we closed up shop at the end of the event we had much to celebrate. Again, our gastronomical goodies from volunteers; the “cookie baker network” cookies and the culinary Italian Country-Style meal served al fresco from our Tuscan kitchens, set our bike tour apart. Not possible to walk away from us hungry!
There were sore muscles that night amongst the tourers I’m sure, but no injuries-0. Two blown tires and a broken chain resulted in rides from our SAG Driver (Support and Guidance) back to Fallasburg Village mid-route for a handful. That was the worst of it. An earlier meal at the Fallasburg Village Cyclist’s Café the consequence.
The Fallasburg Historical Society was pleased to contribute to the League of Michigan Bicyclists, “$1 Per Rider” program helping promote cycling in our State and make Michigan a safer place to cycle as we have since 2010.
Plan for the 25th Annual Covered Bridge Bike Tour
Next years event, the 25TH Annual Covered Bridge Bike Tour on Sunday, July 7, 2019 will be a milestone. Planning has already begun after catching our breath from the 24TH. We always welcome ideas, feedback, and participation as we prepare. Contact us through our website at www.fallasburg.org

Subject: just happened to be travelling through…
May 5, 2018
Thanks so much for all that you folks have done along the Flat River there in Fallasburg. My wife and I were trying to take a shortcut from I-96 to M91, and we found ourselves just north of Lowell, saw the signs, and thought, “Why not?” The park, bridge, historical community, and especially the road that lead us east out-of-town was the perfect unplanned way to slow down, enjoy, and spend a spring day in our area of Michigan. We eventually found our way to M91 and headed for home in Remus. But, whenever we have the chance, we’ll be sure to revisit Fallasburg again. Keep up the good work! BTW, I’m sending my $5 fine…I think I went faster than a walk! God bless.

Summer is almost here as spring winds down. It’s been a busy and productive time in the pioneer village for the Fallasburg Historical Society. (FHS) March and April showers have in fact brought May flowers, but the rains also delayed our much-needed roof replacement on the Fallas House.
Through the benevolence of the late Harold Englehardt of Lowell and his bequest, the Grand Rapids Community Foundation’s Lowell Area Community Fund, awarded monies to FHS to get the job done in what we hoped would be mid-March. Mother Nature strikes again, yet Villagers and volunteers came to the rescue. Craig Wood’s young crew scaled the slippery slope and patched new critter invasion routes which just seemed to appear as soon as we got the last ones secured. Not to worry. The weather did improve and Risner’s Roofing & Home Improvement of Lowell installed a beautiful new roof. Thank you, Grand Rapids Community Foundation, Lowell Area Community Fund, Risner’s, and timely help from Village volunteers. We couldn’t have done it without you!
Speaking of timely help, Fallasburg Historical Society’s Calvin College History Department Intern, Brianne Lynn, under the direction and mentorship of Lowell Area Historical Museum’s Executive Director, Lisa Plank, has completed her term assignment. Brianne has brought FHS ever closer to having all their accession pieces (the stuff that people donate, and the treasures we acquire) digitally cataloged in a wonderful software program and website developed by the Lowell Museum’s software guru, Jeff Ostrander. The site, “The Past Online,” allows anyone with a computer, tablet, or smart phone to access documents, pictures, and artifacts that comprise our collections, for research, or just out of historical curiosity. Have a look: www.thepastonline.org
And, while you’re surfing check out www.fallasburg.org Last December, FHS engaged Addorio Technologies, LLC, of Lowell, to redesign and launch a new website. The first steps were to create basic “Home” and “Contact” pages for the Society which went live in January. The subsequent work, the fun part, has been in development and has just gone up on our site. This work comes courtesy of the Lowell Cable Television Endowment Fund which awarded FHS a grant for the implementation of additional Internet pages. These pages will highlight and provide a means for registration and payment for “Events” like the upcoming 23RD Annual Covered Bridge Bike Tour on Sunday, July 9, and the Fallasburg Farmhouse Soiree on Saturday, August 5.
On another Internet page, you’ll find links to other organizations like “The Past Online,” Lowell Area Historical Museum, and the Fallassburgh Flats, our Vintage Base Ball Team. Of course, there’ll be a “Photo Gallery” page with four seasons of village pictures and historical tidbits. But, the page I’m most excited about is “History’s Mysteries.” Every museum has them, pictures you can’t identify of people and places, artifacts that baffle-what is that? Well, Fallasburg has their share, and you’ll be able to play history detective. We’ll put them up on the site, and who knows what might happen. Thank you to Addorio, and the Lowell Cable Television Fund. Technology is daunting to us old-schoolers, but you’ve helped us broaden our horizons and share our resources as only technology can do!
Murray Lake Elementary students at Fallasburg
Murray Lake Elementary school students at Fallasburg
Lowell Community Expo at Lowell High School in late March brought together Fallasburg Historical Society legends Ed Roth, Dottie Blain, and Addie Tower Abel, along with current FHS Treasurer, Alan Rumbaugh, Board Members Melanie Brim and Tracy Worthington, all as goodwill ambassadors from the Village. The group was out to make new friends and so they did. A local Boy Scout, John Lothian, in pursuit of his Eagle Scout Badge wants to follow up on our new roof and paint the Fallas House for his community service project. Recently retired from Grand Valley State University, Communications Specialist, Mark Kuzee, stopped by. He has relocated to the Lowell Area with his wife Sue, has a penchant for woodworking, and finds exciting the challenges of maintaining historic properties just like our man of many hats, Alan Rumbaugh. We’ve already pressed Mark into service making custom siding patches for critter holes in the wildlife refuge we call Fallasburg Village.
Spring cleaning in Fallasburg was undertaken in several Saturday morning sessions. Tina Cadwallader polished up the Schoolhouse and got it ready for Murray Lake Elementary School’s 1ST Grade Class visit. Alan Rumbaugh, Lisa Sostecke, Mark Kuzee, Frank and Patty Brechbiel and even Fallasburg Intern, Brianne Lynn spiffed up the Misner House filling a dumpster. And, yours truly recycled what amounted to the evolution of the personal computer: old monitors, keyboards, CPU’s, printers, and yes, mice, too.
“Spring into the Past,” a creation of the Tri-Rivers Museum Network on the first weekend in May is a collaboration of what has grown to 41 local museums that share the geography of three rivers. The Flat, the Thornapple, and the Grand Rivers roughly define a boundary. All FHS museums were open for the weekend as were other network museums, free of charge, with regional tours encouraged. Fine weather and sunshine insured a steady stream of visitors and the Fallassburgh Flats, FHS’s Vintage Base Ball Team initiated their 2017 season with an intra-squad scrimmage on Fallas Field. For more information on the Flats and their season schedule: www.fallassburghflats.com
On Monday, June 19, 2017 at the Lowell Chamber of Commerce, 7:00 p.m., FHS will hold our Annual General Meeting. This is an opportunity for our members to have a voice and our friends to offer an opinion. Most importantly, it’s a chance to get for all of you to get involved! We can’t do it without you! We hope you’ll come out and join us!
FHS seeks input on annual Fallasburg Covered Bridge Bike Tour in a survey
By Emma Palova
EW Emma’s Writings
The enclosed link to the survey will help improve the Fallasburg Historical Society (FHS) signature event. That is the annual Fallasburg Covered Bridge Bike Tour (FCBBT) held mostly on the Sunday following the July 4th holiday.
Fallasburg bike tour 2016 registration with Tina Siciliano Cadwallader & Devon Siciliano.
Lunch stop at the Misner House museum.
The routes have been designed for all riders regardless the level of experience. The shorter 12 & 28 mile routes are great for families. The 12-mile route is a loop around the beautiful Fallasburg Park located in northeast Kent County. The 28-mile route goes from the Fallasburg Covered Bridge to the Ada Covered Bridge. All routes are on paved roads and they include public bathroom stops.
The FHS makes every effort to assist riders in need with SAG (supportandgear) aka broom wagon.
Mark your calendars for the next FHS event. The 2nd annual Fallasburg Village Bazaar will be held on Sept.17 & 18 in the historic village of Fallasburg. So, come and explore our house museums: the one room schoolhouse, the Fallass House & the Misner House.
Don’t forget to stop by the Fallassburgh Field to see the vintage Fallassburgh Flats base ball team play the game without gloves on Sept. 17.
Follow us on twitter @fallasburg, #fallasburg, #puremichigan, and on other social media.

Fallasburg, MI- Bicycle riders from all over Michigan flocked to the historic village of Fallasburg nestled on the banks of the Flat River three miles northeast of Lowell on Sunday last week.
It was a perfect day. Not too hot, not too cold. A mild breeze curled the water in the Flat River. The trees bowed their crowns over the Fallasburg museum buildings and the banks of the river. The sun, already high up at 8:30 am, cast its golden rays in between the leaves of oaks and maples.
Several bikers ahead of me pedaled through the Fallasburg Covered Bridge much like the early settlers rode on their horses and in coaches.
The atmosphere hasn’t changed. You hear the wheels hitting the wooden deck of the bridge and rolling slowly, no more than five miles an hour, over the planks.
You emerge on the other side of the river in full morning light. And a new day is born.
The bikers registered for the 22nd annual Fallasburg Covered Bridge Bike Tour (CBBT) at the one-room schoolhouse museum. The bike tour is the signature fundraising event for the Fallasburg Historical Society (FHS).
Registrar Tina Siciliano Cadwallader with niece Devon Siciliano were ready sitting behind the school teacher’s desk with an antique lamp.
They had already launched 62 riders with more streaming in by the minute.Outside the schoolhouse, FHS treasurer Alan Rumbaugh handed out route maps.
According to Rumbaugh, the most popular ride was the 50-mile route.
“Yes, I am the map guy,” he said. “You might as well go 50 rather than just 28. It’s a pretty day to do this.”
For Lisa Pohlad of Grand Rapids this was the third year on the Fallasburg CBBT. Pohlad, who was riding solo, decided for the 50-mile route to Coldwater and back to Fallasburg. However, even some tandem bikers picked the 50 route.
“I am doing the 50 route again,” she said. “It’s a great ride.”
Pohlad didn’t think anything needed to be improved with the event.
“It’s good as it is,” she said.
Most registering bikers asked about root beer which was the paired beverage to the Italian lunch. According to volunteers, the root beer is the jewel of the ride.
“Come early or we run out,” said FHS president Ken Tamke.
Tamke said he was worried about how many riders will participate.
“It’s like having a party and nobody shows up,” he joked.
Tamke along with Frank Brechbiel do the SAG (Support and Gear) aka broom wagon ride assisting bikers who need help en route. They sweep the routes for riders who are unable to continue or those who have technical difficulties.
Back at the Misner House museum it started getting busy around noon with hungry bikers flocking to the porch. FHS volunteer Dottie Blain was manning the buffet station. Blain made her excellent meatballs that are also served at the annual Christmas party on the second Saturday in December.
FHS volunteer Patty Brechbiel was in charge of catering the meal for some 120 riders. This included 10 gallons of pasta sauce doctored up for taste with herbs and spices.
“That’s unacceptable to leave it just from the jars,” she said.
Brechbiel was stationed with her grill by the famous Sprecker’s root beer keg from Wisconsin.
“One year we didn’t have it and it was a big disappointment for riders,” she said.
Typically, the crew serves food until 4 p.m.
Enjoying his meatball & spaghetti meal after a 62-mile ride, Jim Steenwyk of Dorr was no newcomer to the tour. Steenwyk, 74, is a member of the Rapid Wheelman biking group. He’s been riding bicycles since he turned three.
“What about your knees,” I asked. “I had to stop riding because of my knees.”
Steenwyk shook his head and sighed.
“Most people are not trained properly to ride a bike,” he said. “You put torque on your knees. It’s all in shifting.”
Steenwyk has 27 gears on his Camden road bicycle.
And what’s the future for the tour?
According to Tamke, some routes may get revamped while staying local. The organizers are considering a new route to Whites Bridge with a kayaking option.
“We attract a niche of riders every year,” Tamke said. “Come and join us for the 23rd annual bike tour.”
The 23rd Fallasburg Covered Bridge bike tour will be held on Sunday, July 9th with registration from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. at the one-room schoolhouse museum.
Note: Help the FHS improve the bike tour. We are looking for your feedback. Fill out our survey. Thank you.
Fallasburg, MI- After months of anticipation, the biggest event of the year for the Fallasburg Historical Society (FHS) opens Sunday, July 10th at the Fallasburg historical village located three miles northeast of Lowell, Michigan.
On average 150 cyclists take to the paved roads on a variety of routes ranging from 12 miles to 100 miles. All the routes have been meticulously perfected and signed over the 22 years of the tour’s existence.
Fallasburg Covered Bridge Bike Tour takes to the road on July 10.
The registration starts at 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. at the one-room Fallasburg schoolhouse museum with the cost of $35 per person.
“We attract a niche of riders every year,” said FHS president Ken Tamke. “We wanted to do something active. We thought a bike ride would be cool.”
It is the plan to revamp the routes to include a route to the Whites Bridge that will be rebuilt this year. This would include a kayaking option on the Flat River.
“We want to keep it local,” said Tamke.
The historic village is a true hidden gem on the banks of the Flat River founded by John Fallass in 1839. It includes the Tower Farm, the Misner House, the Fallass House, the Fallasburg Covered Bridge and the baseball field with the Fallas Barn built in 1896.
The baseball field serves as home field for the Fallasburg Cubs Vintage Base Ball Club.
The Fallasburg covered bridge spanning 100 feet serves as a gateway to the sleepy village lost in time, that was once a bustling town with sawmills and hotels.
The most popular 28-mile route will take you from the Fallasburg bridge to the covered bridge in Ada and back. All the routes begin and end in Fallasburg.
The grand finale of all the tours is a home-made Italian spaghetti meal served in the yard of the Misner House with the help of eight to 10 volunteers.
“Come and join us this year, enjoy the country and our sleepy little village,” said Tamke.
The FHS donates $1 per rider to support the League of Michigan Bicyclists (LMB) program in memory of ambassador of the bike tour Larry Martin. Martin was hit and killed on the eve of the 17th annual bike tour while riding his bike.
LMB is a lobbying group dedicated to making Michigan a safe place to bike.

Fallasburg, MI- In an effort to raise awareness about ongoing historic preservation at the Fallasburg village located three miles north of Lowell, the Fallasburg Historical Society (FHS) offers tours of the village by appointment.
On Wednesday this week, the Fallasburg one-room schoolhouse came alive with children’s voices. First graders from Murray Lake Elementary sat at the desks and listened to the stories of the past. Volunteer Mike Organek went to the school along with Addie Tower Abel, Ronald Topolski, Dottie Blain and many others. The most popular teacher at the time was Mrs. Zona Postma.
At the time, students had to use the outhouse outside and in winter, the wood stove heated the building. The bell in the belfry announced the start and the end of a school day.
Students Layla Wilks and Weston McFarland especially liked the miniature model of the village located in the community room, and the belfry.
“Our school is much bigger,” said McFarland. “I would come back here.”
The program for first graders has been going on for at least 10 years, according to Organek. This year, 69 students participated in the field trip.
“It goes well with the curriculum,” said teacher Karen Eldridge. “The kids learn about the past, present and the future.”
Follow Fallasburg on social media. Put Fallasburg on your calendar as one of many hidden gems in Michigan that you can visit.
The 22nd annual Fallasburg Covered Bridge Bike Tour will take place on July 10th with registration from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. To pre-register go to http://www.fallasburg.org.
The schoolhouse is open on Sundays from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. until October.
