Spring Bicycle Ride, Sat. 4/14
Troop 212 will be conducting a 15 mile bike ride on Saturday, cheap April 14th along the San Gabriel
River Bike trail to a local eatery near the Long Beach boarder and back. The ride is flat and easy
on a newly paved pike path with no motorized vehicle traffic except for a short stretch on city
streets near our destination. This is a great ride for beginners who wish to enjoy a leisurely bike
ride and learn more about cycling. The uniform of the day is a Class B or gray tee shirt.
We will meet at the church parking lot at 9:00am to pre-ride check the bikes and depart around
9:30am. It is recommended to eat a very light breakfast or snack prior to arriving at the church.
We will pedal our bikes approximate 7.5 miles along the river trail to our destination for brunch at
Fantastic Café, 1180 Studebaker Road, in Long Beach and ride back to the church, all within 3
hours. This ride qualifies as a 15 mile merit badge ride once the scout completes the required Trip
