Hey, I Can Fix That!




We have two clinics coming up that are going to be really important.   The first is “Bike Basics – Equipment and Maintenance Fundamentals” and is scheduled for 4/20.      The second is “Riding Fundamentals” and is scheduled for 4/27.    I know we’ve had  to move these dates around a bit, and I apologize if this has resulted in conflicts for some folks, but I think both sessions will be really great and well worth attending!

Our instructor will be Alyssa Boxhill.   Alyssa is a League of American Bicyclists instructor and has a tremendous amount of experience.   She has customized a training program specific to our needs and based on the feedback you provided in the skills assessment.     Check out the forums for more details on the agenda, times, and meeting place!

C&O Bike Trip Anyone?


With the decision of the UME office to limit our travel this year to in-state, the options available for a multi-day high adventure have change pretty significantly.     We are now working towards a multi-day biking adventure along the C&O Canal Towpath.     This 184.5 mile path travels through time as it follows the Potomac River and reveals the full history of the C&O canal.    From it’s starting point in Georgetown to the far terminus in Cumberland, MD, the path is very well maintained and offers many convenient camping spots along with water and port-johns.        It takes regular training and determination to work up to the daily mileage, but the reward is well worth the effort!


More details to come, but don’t miss our March 15th Information Meeting at the UME office on Montevue Lane, from 6pm to 8pm.

Let’s Go Canoeing!


The 2013 High Adventure activity will be a multi-day canoe-camping adventure in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW).

The BWCAW is over 1,000,000 acres of wilderness within the Superior National Forest in Minnesota.

The planning for this exciting adventure is under way, with a lot more details yet to come.   Keep an eye out on the forums as plans develop.
