Bike Trip Reminders

A reminder to Scouts and parents that our bike trip is coming up this weekend. Without a meeting this week, I thought it would be worth reminding everyone about some of the key details for this trip …

Bikes at the Sagamore BridgeSee this post for a full description of our activities and plans for the weekend.

  • We will be leaving Westford at 3:00 pm from St. Mark’s. Please plan on being at the church at 2:30 so we can load bikes and gear for the ride to the Cape.
  • Permission slips are required for all participants (adults and Scouts). If you did not submit your permission form last week, you must have it with you on Friday.
  • The cost of the trip is $50/person. Please do not bring checks or cash with you on Friday! If you have not paid for the trip, please bring your payment to the next Troop meeting.
  • The weather forecast is for partly cloudy skies with temperatures in the low 50’s. It will be a bit chilly, so dress appropriately. A windbreaker and gloves are probably a good idea – particularly at the start of the day.

Finally, don’t forget to take your bike out for a test ride before Friday! Check your tires, brakes and gears to make sure they are all in working order. And remember – Helmets are required for all riders.

If you have any questions between now and the weekend, please give me a call or an email.
