This summer’s bike rides are proving popular with residents. One recent ride had more than 80 participants. Each ride is free and covers a distance of about 6-8 miles. The tours are guided by a person knowledgeable about the trail. Helmets are a requirement for participants.
Bike rides are a great family activity, a great way to spend time with friends and to meet new friends.
