Cycling Merit Badge - Ride this Sunday

Posted by Jeff Vilenski on August 21, 2014 at 11:50 PM

Our next bike ride toward the Cycling merit badge will be this SUNDAY August 24.


We will meet at a NEW LOCATION - Fairfield Town Hall Annex parking lot at 8:30AM - same time as in the past. The plan is to complete our first 25 mile ride to Westport and back. So please remember to bring a permission slip, which is attached, and a water bottle. You might also want to bring some money as we’ll stop at Elvira’s for a quick break. We should be back by noon.


Please reply to Mr. Magnusson - - that you can ride, especially an adult as we need a second adult to ride along. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and we'll have another good day of riding.


To help with your planning our next ride will be another 25 miler next SATURDAY Aug 30 - again we'll meet at the Town Hall Annex.


As for the 50 miler we will have to take a poll of what weekend can work for scouts. I nominate either Sept 13 or 14 or the following weekend for the ride. We will also need a couple of "sag wagons" - these are parents in their cars who can ferry snacks and lunch to the various rest stops during our ride - this has been a big help for past rides.


Let Mr. Magnusson know your date preference and if you'd be willing to drive a "sag wagon". He will give directions to those who can help.


Keep in mind that if you've missed any rides to date you can do rides on your own - just keep a log of when and where you rode and the mileage.
