You are highly encouraged to monitor the local Council’s website in order to stay informed regarding upcoming Council hosted events, which are distinct from Pack events. Such events include Summer camp programs, shooting sports programs, Fall weekend programs, and adult leader training programs.
On October 17th Pack 34 will hold its October pack event – A pack Bike ride with a lesson on Bike Safety and Bike repair. This is going to be a fun event that incorporates a bit of learning so our scouts are ready and able to bike safely in our community and are prepared to fix and issue if one were to arise.
HOW THIS WILL WORK:
We will be grouped into dens and each den will get a starting timeslot. The dens will meet at Edna Maguire School at the designated start time. Mr. Ryan Loften, Founder and Operator of Mt. Tam Bike Camp will lead us in an important discussion on bike safety and good bikemanship out in the community. Den leaders (with parents in toe) will then lead a bike ride with the scouts to a second location where Mr James Gracey will lead a basic bike maintenance lesson. and then den leaders will lead the ride back.
the goal of this event is to get out for a ride with our friends and fellow scouts and learn a little bit about how to be considerate riders, good stewards of our environment and how to be prepared for unexpected mechanical issues. So we can stay safe, have fun and keep pedaling.
