grand rapids area bike club

looking for a bike club in grand rapids area... I am a newer road cyclist, and ride 17-19 mph over 20-40 miles. I live in Jenison, does anyone know of any local clubs that have group rides that'd be a good group to get with? I doubt that i'll ever race competitively, but would like to get into cyclocross this coming fall. I like the idea of the advocacy that clubs promote in their local areas.

Any advise would be great

Village Bike Shop in Jenison has a few group rides, check out their website. Not sure if Chicago Drive Cycling in Grandville does but they might. Rapid Wheelmen have a few big rides during the year and a time trial series as well.

The Rapid Wheelmen is a really good club. I belonged in the 90's for about a year while I was working in Grand Rapids.
