Bike to Skate update from Jeff Bernards:

We will be riding the East Bank Esplanade all the way to Oaks Park, this is a very family friendly ride. You can meet us part way under the Hawthorne Bridge about 6:15-30.

This event is a Pot-luck, we have a covered picnic area at Oaks Park. I will be making (a lot of) Thai Salad Rolls-vegi & Shrimp.
There will be another Bike to Skate next Tues. June 20, also a Pot Luck. The skate sessions for that date are 7-9:30 & 9:30 -11pm. Bike to Skate can skate both sessions for the price of one. Rex skating happens during the 2nd session–hip hop music with some fun moves to be learned ( we have a certified skate instructor) to help us.
