Winslow— If you’d like to squeeze in a little more summer fun (and admittedly exercise) before the school year kicks off, consider hitting the road with your bicycle for this summer’s third community bike ride in Winslow.
Sponsored by Broke Dog Custom Boot Shop and Sky-Vue Lodge, the next ride is scheduled Tuesday, August 17, and will tackle a more difficult route than the previous two rides. Bikers will meet at 5:45 p.m.at the Community Ball Park in Winslow and ride to the top of scenic Mount Gaylor and back; the ride begins at 6:15 p.m.
The ride is open to all ages and the past two rides have seen 16-19 riders participate. Bikers will travel along Hwy 71, then along main Street and Valley View through Winslow and then up to Mount Gaylor on Hwy 71 South, according to Glenn Jorgenson, who owns Sky-Vue Lodge. The trip back will be on Hwy 71 North and cold drinks and snacks will be served at the ball park upon return.
Jorgenson says this month’s route would be considered “moderately difficult.” There will be SAG support and experienced riders will accompany the group.
If there is enough interest, a second, easier route may be added, according to Jorgenson. He also strongly recommends a helmet and water bottle for the ride. Call Floyd or Jarod at Broke Dog Boots 634-2320 or Glenn at Sky-Vue Lodge 634 -2003 for further information or if you are interested in riding an easier route on Aug. 17.
