three tidbits for your Monday:

First:
Amtrak’s Cascades trains can now carry ten bikes, a small but potentially trip-saving change for a route that connects some of the continent’s bikiest cities.

Second:
Sather Park trail maintenance/weed brushing party. Monday AUGUST 5th. Start out at The Broken Spoke at 6pm. Heading up to Sather by 6:15pm... bring your light gloves, brush clippers, and we'll cut back the encroaching trail. All are welcome- men and women, kids and dogs especially if they chew sticks to pieces. Ladies will possibly head out for our bike ride when the work is done. 

Third:
Saturday August 17th:  All Ages Bicycle Scavenger Hunt and Strider Adventure Zone. 10am-Noon. Will you be there?!? Spread the news, the more the merrier

More Opportunities to Ride Your Mountain Bike

The Broken Spoke has our Ladies rides on Monday and our Thursday night rides every week. If you're thinking, "I love my bike and I need to ride more", Kitsap County's NWTR rides happen every week also! They have a group mountain bike ride every Tuesday at the Stottlemeyer Trail head in Port Gamble. They also have field trips, including their trek up to Anderson Lake Wednesday, July 24. They will be meeting at the Hood Canal Bridge at 5:30, putting the group at the Anderson trail head around 6pm. To see other rides or trail work days, keep checking the Kitsap Mountain Biking site: http://www.kitsapmtb.com/

Easy Family Ride on Sunday July 21

*Sunday July 21, at 4:30pm: Family Ride the Fort Worden loop.
Meet at the West Gate parking lot (next to the US Army Cemetery) for a leisurely kids’ pace around on the paths. I will pre-scope out a short course. We can modify, do two or see as we need. Total time should be around 45 minutes. Please bring a snack, water, helmet, trail bike and anything else needed to enjoy a slow paced, easy group bike ride.  Kids on bikes, using training wheels, trail-a-bikes, sitting in trailers, Striders, balance type bikes welcome. Tell a friend. All are welcome (even those without kids). The more, the merrier.
