The Sierra Club is kicking off its bike initiative with a bike ride on Saturday, April 20th at 10 am. The bike ride, with discussion, will loop through Silver Spring and Takoma Park. The ride assembles at Veterans Plaza in Silver Spring near the skating rink. It’s a great way to show your support for bicycling in Montgomery County.
Dan Reed (blogger for GGW) and Jack Cochrane (MoBike) will be leading the ride. The route includes the Metropolitan Branch Trail, Sligo Creek Trail, and a few city streets, exploring a variety of semi-urban biking landscapes. Stronger riders can continue on to Wheaton.
Along the way the Sierra Club will discuss its new Bicycle Statement, filled with ideas to make biking a safe and common activity for everyone. The ride includes points of interest related to the statement.
Rain date is Saturday, April 27. It’s free and open to the public. For more information and to make a reservation (optional), contact Ethan Goffman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope to see you there!
Jack Cochrane, MoBike
