Branch 35




Trail Birds



Chairman: Jerry Butler
Alternate: Karl Reseck

Monthly bicycling is a combined activity of Branch 35 and all branches in Area 16.  Rides are monthly on the 2nd Thursday of the month.  There is no ride in December.  Attendance, including guests and wives, averages about 12 to 16 riders, but more are welcome.

The rides are planned to be 15 to 20 miles on paved bicycle trails so that almost any type bike is usable.  Some rides have optional ride distances. The pace is moderate and riding on streets is kept to a minimum. The rides start at 11:00 AM and include a lunch break at a restaurant.

Events are announced in each branch’s monthly newsletter and by e-mail to all interested members.  The list of rides for the year 2014 is:
