: Saturday, September 11,[masked]:00 AMWhere
: Hans and Barb Gasterland's House
272 Vincent Av N
Minneapolis, MN 55405
The OSL MeetUp has been invited to join Hiawatha Bicycling Club
for their "2nd Annual HBC
Chicken Coop Tour!"
On September 11 the Backyard Chicken Coop owners of the Twin Cities will have an open house when the public can tour their coops. I'm not kidding! Here's the link: http://sites.google.com/site/twincitiescooptour/
Last year Hans Gasterland led the tour and the participants gave it rave reviews. This year Hans has to stay home to show his chicken coop to tour participants. So Judy Burdick and Tom Renner will lead the tour.
Distance: 15 - 20 miles. Slow/Medium, Flat and Mapless: Group sticks together.
Any riders that wish to ride with HBC on this ride, and sign in on their ride sheet will have complementary insurance
coverage for this ride. There will be no pressure to join HBC, just an opportunity to see the chickens of Minneapolis, (really!)
ALL riders MUST wear a helmet! NO EXCEPTIONS! Judy and Tom are long-time experienced ride leaders and are good with new riders. So this will NOT be a fast ride.

Then we've added quite a few new events and instead of sending out individual, and potentially irritation producing emails for each and every one of them, below are the newer events and their links. Yes, I know a couple are way out in the future, but they are popular and have the potential to sell out very
If you can't make the "Chicken Coop Tour" how about riding with Twin Cities Bicycling MeetUp on Sunday. There are also going to try and join us for the horseback riding that day at River Valley Ranch. Here is the link to the TCB event: http://www.meetup.com/tcbicycling/calendar/14562541/2.
