This Saturday at 8:00am we will be holding a fundraiser breakfast–pancakes, bananas, and juice–to raise money to continue building new trails at the mouth of Hobble Creek Canyon. A suggested donation for the pancake breakfast is $10. The event will be at the Garth Killpack gun range, but if coming by vehicle you will need to park elsewhere (the upper Bartholomew lot or along Canyon Road above the gun range) and ride in. After breakfast we will be riding the new 1-mile loop at the base of the canyon called “Rabbitbrush”. It is a beginner trail and fun for all ages and abilities. We will also have HCBA t-shirts for sale and proceeds from donations from breakfast and the t-shirts will help in building two additional trail options. Please RSVP if you plan on coming. We hope to see you there!
Bike with the Mayor
Also this Saturday but at 10:30 (so you could do both!) is Springville’s annual Bike with the Mayor event at the grassy area next to city hall. The HCBA will be there with a booth and Griffin Park of Jolly Circle Bike Shop will have a maintenance stand up and running for some quick tune and lubes. There will be food, swag, and bicycle registration provided by Springville CIty. And after the group ride, complete with police escort, there will be lunch and the grand opening of the splash pad.
Road Ride Next Saturday
Next Saturday, the 21st, bike month continues with Mike Snelson’s semi-monthly group road ride. We’ll meet at the front entrance of Springville High School at 8:00am and head out for 30-40 miles of nice morning riding.
Screening of Motherload
Also next Saturday, at 6:00pm at the Springville library, the HCBA will be putting on a screening of Motherload, an award-winning documentary about families —especially moms— saving money and finding increased happiness and fulfillment by using cargo bikes for everyday transportation. If you dislike traffic, or dread the school drop-off line, or hate paying high gas prices, or wish your kids could safely cross the street, this film is for you! Before the movie there will be a Cargo Bike Roundup in the parking lot where you can check out a variety of cargo bikes and ebikes. Come test ride cargo bikes, get inspired by the film, and meet local families who are replacing car trips with bicycles rides. This event is entirely free and family-friendly. Bicycling to the event is encouraged but not required.
