Frank L. White is the chef pictured on the Cream of Wheat cereal boxes. His story is on Wikepedia. Besides being of general interest, Mr. White’s grave site lies at the end of an interesting route that includes I-196, I-96, M-50, M-188, the Grand River, as well as numerous country roads. We started the ride with the usual hearty breakfast at New Beginnings and departed with 8 riders — Phil Nellis, Roger Vanden Brink, Mike Hankinson, Mark Giem, Jake Berzkalns, Dave Winn, Jodi Lee, and Ethan Powsner. The weather was perfect as we motored east on I-196 and I-96 in order to clear GR before we took a meandering route to M-50 East for most of the rest of the way. The mid-ride rest stop was at the McDonalds in Lake Odessa. After we reached our destination in Leslie, we had lunch a few short blocks away at the Leslie Depot Diner.
