The Jim Dandy Ski Club is the first Black Ski Club in the United States, and quite likely the world.  Founded in 1958, we have evolved into much more than just a ski club.  
We engage in numerous activities for all ages.  If you and your family want to try something new, exciting, and fun, c’mon and hang with the Dandies.

2021 Belle Isle Bike and Kite Day
Sunday, April 25, 2021 to Sunday, May 2, 2021, 10:30 am
Dandies and friends. Come on out for our Socially Distanced JDSC Bike Ride & Kite Fly, at Belle Isle Park. If you have never flown a kite we will show you.
The location of the event on the island will be next to shelter #19 which is at 2nd parking lot past the golf driving range. Next to the Yacht Club. You basically drive around about 2/3 of the island to get there. Look for Jim Dandy Club sign.
Bike Ride will begin at 10:30 am, Kiting will begin at 1:00 pm. Anyone can do this bike ride, a slow or fast roll around the park.
Bring a kite if you are going to fly, a bike if you are going to ride, just yourself if you are just going to socialize. Bring a lawn chair and lunch. Walmart & Amazon have kites. I will have extras if you cannot get one.
Note if raining event will be postponed to Sunday May 1st
