Paddle, Pedal, Putt - 2nd Annual Spokes and Jokes Triathlon/Cookout/Ca­mpout

So you think you're all that and a bag of chips?  Time to prove it to everyone at our second annual triathlon.  We will compete for the best overall combined time and score in three categories:  canoeing, biking and putt putt.

First, we'll canoe for 6 miles on the great Tuscarawas River.  This portion will pair randomly selected participants to share a canoe and paddle together toward victory (or a bitter defeat).  Next, we regain our land legs and bike the towpath for 6 miles.  Lastly, we'll see who can get the lowest score in 18 holes of putt putt.  Best overall time wins bragging rights.

 A cookout will follow. Bring a covered dish & BYOB as I will supply the meat.

All are invited to pitch a tent and camp overnight.  A $10 fee per tent will cover as many as you want to fit in it.

Canoe rental is $15 per person.

This will be one of the biggest events of year - you won't want to miss it!  Joins us in celebrating the 2013 biking year with Spokes & Jokes.

Don't want to compete?  Join us for the cookout and helping out on the triathlon.

 More details to come.
