Come and join us This Wednesday, September 8th at 1pm for some outdoor fun rain or shine!

Meet at the parking lot at Tikishla Park near the intersection of 20th and Sunset Drive at 1pm

Directions:  From Lake Otis turn east on 20th and drive to the end to Tikishla Park parking lot.

Description:  This ride will follow the Chester Creek Trail then connect onto Russian Jack Trail.  We will ride to the Mann Leiser Memorial Greenhouse where we can take a break and enjoy the beautiful exotic plants that are there.   This ride is 4.2 miles round trip and is suitable for young homeschoolers and novice riders.  Plan about 2.5-3 hours for this ride and to have time upon our return to let the kids check out the excellent playground at Tikishla Park and explore the nearby stream. If there are very young siblings please have trailers or trail-a-bikes so we can keep the group moving. 

Remember to bring plenty of water, snacks, and helmets.
