We are planning this trip so that all scouts can participate regardless of skill level.  We will need extra adults (4 to 6 min) on this trip to help with transportation and also to help with the logistics during the biking.  We are looking for a trailer to haul the bikes in.  Please contact Mr. Albertson if you have a trailer that the troop can use. 

Current plans are to leave Harrisonburg by 6pm on Friday, 8/14.  We will be home late Sunday, 8/16, maybe as late as 6pm.  Scouts will doing group cooking.  For the biking portion of the trip, the following items are required:

  • Helmet
  • Closed toe shoes
  • Water Bottle + Day Pack or Camelback
  • Extra inner-tube
  • Tire repair kit.
