From canoeing the mighty Huron River to Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, Troop 8 at St. Thomas Church runs the most amazing year-round outdoor adventure and leadership program in the area.

Biking Weekend

This trip we will be visiting the fantastic DTE Energy trail system up near Pinckney. The trails are carefully designed to provide a unique trail biking experience. For those who went there with us last year, have no fear of boredom, as they have opened up a brand new trail just this summer with a higher difficulty. As an added bonus, we will be stopping at a local cider mill on the bike back.

In order to attend this trip, you must have attended both of the biking meetings this year unless you obtain special permission from your patrol leader prior to the trip's departure.

Biking Meeting

Hey hey, welcome back to Troop 8! We're kicking off this fall with a biking sequence on some of our local trails!

This meeting is an intro to mountain and road biking at Olson Park, at the corner of Pontiac Trail and Dhu Varren. Whether you're a beginner or experienced biker, you'll learn or review how to ride on trails, ride with a group, and interact safely with traffic. We want to make sure everyone is prepared to ride safely on roads and trails and have some fun learning to do so!

Date and Time: 
Tue, 09/11/2018 - 5:30pm - 7:20pm
Location: 
Olson Park, 1551 Dhu Varren Rd. Meet at the Pavilion (unless there's other people at the pavilion, don't crash someone's birthday party or anything)
