June Bike Trip sign-ups due this week

Posted on Jun 7 2017 - 11:52pm

The June trip for Troop 437 is a Bicycling Trip on Cape Cod. The ride will be on the Cape Cod Rail Trail and some sections of road. We will be tent camping at Greenough Boy Scout camp in Yarmouth, MA (https://www.scoutscapecod.org/). On Saturday, we will be biking on the Cape Cod Rail Trail. Distance and route will depend on several factors including weather, attendees, and timing. Anticipate a ride of 25 – 30 miles.

In addition to the normal camping gear a bicycle is required as well as a helmet. The Troop is arranging for a vehicle to transport the bikes from Westford to the camp grounds – look for an announcement on where to meet in Westford on Saturday morning. Once at the campsite we will depart for our bike ride at 10:30 AM, and have lunch on the trail.

A few items to remember to pack for this trip: helmet, suntan lotion, helmet, bug spray, helmet, rain gear, helmet, layers that can be easily removed during biking, water bottle. And…don’t forget your helmet!
