Troop 57 Golden Gate to Palo Alto Bike Ride (May 17)

Right now our Golden Gate bike ride is scheduled for April 26.  It’s 50 miles long, and a tough ride.  If your legs and bike aren’t ready for it, it won’t be fun.  That’s just the way cycling is.  Because it is 50 miles, with some hills, and because Mr. Craig wants those who go to have a good time, he'll only take scouts who have either done a 50-mile ride previously, or completed the qualification ride that I led in January.

If you have done neither, but really want to go on the ride, Mr. Craig can schedule another qualification ride, but you need to let him know this week for scheduling purposes.  The qualification ride is 25 miles, and hilly.  It’s doable, but you’d want to feel confident in your abilities, and have a light, well-functioning bike.
