“Second Sunday Bike Ride: Exercise After the Holidays!”
A gentle 8-mile bike ride on the Chester Valley Trail
Sunday January 12, 2020
French & Pickering Creeks Conversation Trust will be hosting an 8-mile bike ride on the Chester Valley Trail, a 10-12 foot wide paved path.
This trail offers visitors a glimpse of the historic Six Penny Recreation Area where dam ruins and the park’s original picnic grounds can be seen. The trail is well forested and rather rocky. This trail can be muddy as we will be walking near a stream and have received a lot of rain. On the upside, you will see gorgeous moss-covered boulders at the mid- point of the trail. Please wear your hiking boots if you have them.
Thanksgiving always inspires a certain degree of gratitude. We will be infusing gratitude throughout this hike in a fun way.
Where to Meet
East Whiteland Township Building: 209 Conestoga Road, Malvern, PA. at 1 p.m. We will conclude around 3:00p.m.
The land trust is a nonprofit charitable organization whose mission is to preserve, steward, and connect people to the land.
RSVP IS required. Please RSVP to email@example.com
Age Appropriate: 8 years+
Items to bring: Bike, helmet, water bottle. Perhaps a piece of fruit to snack on.
