Updates on Summer Bike Rides
So far this summer, SWC hosted three casual bike rides for members and friends, and all thus far have outsmarted the rainy weather!
We have explored Zim Smith Trail (Round Lake), Ashuwillticook Trail (Adams, MA) and on this last weekend the Erie Canal Trail section between Amsterdam and Fultonville, with 23 riders joining in!
One major challenge in the first mile was a medium-sized tree that completely blocked the trail. We all worked as a team to get all bikes across, one volunteer sat on the tree as everyone pulled their bikes over it!
We also stopped at the Schoharie Crossing Historic site and did a little exploring.
These Saturday rides are organized for about a 20 mile route with side stops for snacks and refreshment, for all levels of riders. This is a great way to make connections with other members, and friends outside the club.
Our final summer ride is planned for Saturday September 16, 2023, location is TBD, and will be announced in the next week.
