Minooka Trail Work Finale This Sunday!


If you need a reason to burn off the leftovers after the long weekend, our last work day of the year at Minooka will be this Sunday, 9am-Noon. Meet in Picnic Area 5 (end of the road) at 8:45a. Dirt work and brush clearing-- long pants, heavy shoes or boots and gloves are suggested. Metro/WBA will supply tools. Please be prompt and RSVP so we can plan tools and refreshments. Parking permits will be issued to volunteers who don't have county park stickers. Just tell the attendant you're volunteering for trail work, we'll have the permits in the parking lot. We are very close to having the first loop finished, which will open in Spring!

Happy Thanksgiving and thank you to everyone who's helped out this Fall!

Bikesha Food Drive- Nov. 16th!

Once again, our annual Bikesha Food Drive is coming up next Friday the 16th. As usual, we'll meet at Cafe de Arts around 6:30 and head out at 7:00pm. Cost is 3 non-perishable food items and the post-ride Magellan's pizza is on us! Prizes to the most food biked in. Helmets and lights are required and dress warm, the parkway is especially chilly this time of year. Thank you to Ayhan at Cafe de Arts and Dan at Magellan's for their continued support of our events!
