Troop bike outing
May 29, 2015 @ 11:00 pm - May 30, 2015 @ 6:00 am
On May 30th the Troop will be holding a bike outing on the Banks-Vernonia trail. The plan is to ride from L.L. “Stub” Stewart State Park to Vernonia and back. Round trip, this outing should cover 21 miles. This trip will also have a service element to it sometime during the outing, where the group will cut scotch broom that grows in inconvenient places along the trail. This would also be a great opportunity for the Scouts wanting to or currently working on their cycling merit badge. At the meeting on May 25th, cycling merit badge counselors will be available to teach the scouts some cycling skills; changing a tire, bike maintenance, safety, etc. They will also be available to help scouts complete the merit badge. I will be running sign-ups immediately, and will run through May 25th. The event costs $5. This covers gas money and snacks given to participants at the trailhead. Load out for the event will be at the Oak Hills Church. (7:15) Anticipated return will be at about 1:30pm. More emails will be sent out, telling riders what they need to bring, and how to prepare.
