CHESS Dad and Kid's Bike Ride - Saturday, August 29
Hey Dad, if you think ice cream and hot summer days go well together, then let's meet up at Crego Park and enjoy them together. Load up the bikes, kids, and water bottles and join in the fun of an afternoon of bike riding to an ice cream shop. Meet at Crego Park at 2:00 pm on Saturday, August 29th and we'll ride about 4 miles to the MSU dairy store and enjoy delicious ice cream, then ride back the same 4 miles. This ride is open to CHESS dads and their kids...while the moms enjoy an afternoon to themselves...or with babies/youngsters who may not be able to ride eight miles. Most of the ride will be on the river trail, and we'll ride at a nice, slow comfortable pace. Don't forget to bring along cash for ice cream! Here's a link to the dairy store so you can see their ice cream menu and prices http://dairystore.msu.edu. If you have any questions please contact Chris Hundt. Hope to see you there! No ride if it's raining.
