Maple Ride on Saturday will close out the 2016 Bike Fun Calendar

Our final Poky Pedal of 2016 is coming up this Saturday. The Maple Ride will offer a bit of Bike Fun to celebrate our passage into the fall season.

The Maple Ride will meet on Saturday September 24 at 12:45 PM in Little Plover River Park near the tennis courts. As always, the Maple Ride is our annual opportunity to seek out streets named “Maple”, in whole or in part. This year, our route will take us on calm streets and non-motorized paths through scenic neighborhoods in Plover.

We’ll be seeking out streets named “Maple”, in whole or in part, during the Maple Ride.

During our 8-mile loop ride, we will ride slowly in one contiguous group. There will be a snack stop about halfway through, so Poky Pedalers are encouraged to bring a little something along to enjoy there. Unfortunately, there will not be any option to purchase snack items during our ride.

The Maple Ride is free of charge and all Poky Pedalers are welcome. If riding slowly and sharing Bike Fun sounds like a great way to spend an afternoon, then you are a Poky Pedaler.

As of Wednesday morning, the weather forecast for Saturday afternoon is calling for temperatures in the mid-60’s under cloudy skies. No rain is expected, as any light drizzle is predicted to end Saturday morning. Conditions should be cool yet pleasant for our Poky Pedal.

I will continue to monitor the weather forecast and will update this blog post if necessary over the next few days. If the forecast changes drastically and requires a postponement, I’ll also include that info in the update. For now, it seems that we should be able to enjoy the Maple Ride as scheduled.

The Maple Ride will be our final opportunity to share Bike Fun this year, so Poky Pedalers won’t want to miss out on this opportunity to enjoy a colorful fall afternoon. I look forward to sharing Bike Fun with all Poky Pedalers on Saturday.
