Wednesday Weekly Wander

This week will be a mountain bike ride in North Bicentennial Park, starting from the Abbot Community Park.  We will meet in the parking lot at 6:30 pm and ride for about 90 minutes, then head somewhere to rehydrate and eat dinner.

The trails in North Bicentennial that we will be riding are mostly multi-use trails so they are wide, relatively smooth, and there are not too many hills.   So, most folks with a mountain bike and minimal skills should do just fine. We won't be riding near any salmon streams and with the large group and amount of use on the trails, the potential for bear encounters will be minimal - but you never know, so bring bear spray (always a good idea anywhere in AK).  Bring layers to shed and plenty of water.

If anyone would like to start a few hours early (4-ish) and do some more rides in the area or some singletrack trails, then meet up with the main group at 6:30, please text me at[masked] or email me through the site.

No dogs.

Must wear a helmet on our rides.  No exceptions.


Wednesday weekly wanders repeat weekly; season and weather determine the activity and place, which will be posted no later than Tuesday night, and usually earlier.  If you have any suggestions or requests, feel free to email Jo, Julia or Vern.

And remember, not all who wander are  lost.... at least most of the time.

    Yikes, Ian that is too bad. Cassie and I rode maybe half a mile to a nicely paved bike path. A breeze to get back to my car. I am not cut out for all those roots and rocks!

    Very nice until I got a puncture. Thanks for walking back with me when I had to abandon the cycling.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
