All About Cross Country Bike Tours – Spinners Winter Gathering

January 12, 2020 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Nature at the Confluence
306 Dickop St
South Beloit, IL 61080

Over the years we have had a gathering of Spinners in January just to keep everyone in the “cycling mood” and this year it is no different.

Mark your calendars for Sunday, January 12, @ 3:00 p.m. (Packers game starts about 5:30 p.m.) at Nature At The Confluence, 306 Dickop St., South Beloit, Illinois, when there will be a conversation and a presentation regarding how to prepare and what to expect on a cross country bike ride. Some Spinners recently heard a presentation about such a bike ride and we want to further explain what’s involved. Rick Barder took such a cross country trip back in 2006 and is most willing to share his experience with whomever is interested.

If there are at least five Spinners who would like to attend, then the event will happen, so please send an email to confirm your attendance:

If you do attend, please bring your own food/beverage and pencil and paper, because serious trekkers may want to take notes.

An invitation to this event has been extended to Lon Haldeman, who recently returned from an exploratory trip to Ghana in anticipation of a group trip to Ghana in November of 2020, which may be of interest to some Spinners.
