|Description:||Greene County Parks & Trails Sentinels and Park Rangers Consolidate Bike Camp Dates
Children of all ages can come join the GCP&T Trail Sentinels and Park Rangers for a week-long bike camp that features cycling rules, safety and bike trail etiquette from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., June 25 to 29.
The bike camp sessions have been combined to include all ages this year to accommodate the local school district's varying dismissal dates. The earlier session from June 4 to 8 has been combined into the later session.
Bike camp will be based at Xenia Station, 150 Miami Ave., Xenia, which serves as the hub for the region's paved, multi-use bike trails.
The week's schedule will begin with a "Bike Roadeo" that teaches the skills and rules of cycling.
"We could not hold our bike camp without the amazing support from our volunteer trail sentinels," says Greene County Parks & Trails Sgt. Bill Nickell. "We are so lucky to have our miles of paved trails and we want everyone to enjoy them safely. This bike camp will show our youngest cyclists how to have fun and stay safe at the same time."
K & G Bike Center will have a mechanic available from 9 to 10 a.m., on June 25.
During the rest of the week, cyclists will ride a different Greene County trail each day with a stop for a brown bag lunch---and at a local ice cream shop too.
Participants need to provide:
* Money for a visit to an ice cream shop;
* Brown bag lunch with non-perishables;
* Filled water bottle;
* Well-maintained bike (suggest mountain bike/multi-speed bike ;)
* Helmet and closed-toe shoes required.
Cost for the Bike Camp is $35 for Greene County residents; $45 for non-residents.
