The Monday night mountain bike rides continue throughout the year. They begin at 5:00 pm and leave from the Swan Cycles bike shop. Most nights they are on trails on Mt. Pleasant which are not too demanding. We choose the trails according to the ability levels of those who show up. You don’t have to be a top notch rider to have a good time. You just need some basic skills and a sense of humor.
If riding trails isn’t appropriate, other pastimes are substituted — riding roads, skiing, snow-shoeing.
Swan Cycles is located at the top of Mt Pleasant Rd. For information, call 277-0495.
Monday Family Bike Ride
Monday Rec Path Family Ride: Starting May 2nd at 4pm join Holly, Paul & Oliver for a ride on the East Hill Rec Path/Pew Trail. Meet at the Pew Trail parking lot at the base of Snyder Hill Rd. (near the intersection with Pine Tree). We’ll ride the trail along Honness to the East Hill Rec Path out to Game Farm Rd. and back. For those willing to tackle the hill, we can ride up the Pew Trail to the playground at the far end of the trail and back. We could even tackle the hill of the Eastern Heights neighborhood up to Sky Vue and back to the Pew Trail. At the parking lot before the ride begins, we’ll take a little time for a few games such as a Snail Race, Bean Bag Toss, Precision Stopping & Cone Course.
Parent/guardian & helmets are required for all kids. This route has street crossings and a short distance of on-street riding on Maple Rd. Parents are responsible for ensuring that their child crosses safely and rides to the right.
