Our next biking merit badge ride will be this Sunday, November 8th. This ride is not recreational and is only for those scouts working on the merit badge. We will be keeping a healthy pace as a group and all riders need to be able to keep up. We can not have big gaps in the riders as this creates an unsafe situation on such a long ride, especially since will be have some road crossings. We will be starting at 8:00pm. Please be there a few minutes early to check your tire pressure and bike gears. We will be meeting at Larry and Penny Thompson Park in the parking lot in front of the lake pavilion. See the below map. Also below is the remaining biking dates for merit badge. Bike helmets and water bottles are mandatory to participate. Also make sure that you have a spare inner tube, tools, pump and patches in case of a flat tire, basically “be prepared”.
