Cycling & Camping Permission Slip


A few final items for our 3/16 cycling trip:

1. I want to get a few spare inner tubes to have in case of serious flats. PLEASE SEND ME YOUR TIRE SIZE (look on the sidewall of the tire for a pair of numbers with an 'X' in the middle, like: "26x1")

2. Plan:

7:30 AM: Meet at IWLA (have breakfast before you arrive).  We will put the bikes on a trailer and drive to the C&O canal tow path at Antietam.

An out-and-back look in the morning (north), eat lunch and an out-and-back loop (south) in the afternoon.

4:30: Pack up and leave Antietam

We will stop for dinner on the way home - each scout will have $10 to spend.

6:00 - 7:00 PM: Arrive at IWLA (will call when we're on our way)

3. Gear:

- Bike (make sure it's ready for a day-long ride)
- Helmet
- Back Pack w/ padded straps
- Water Bottle
- Rain Jacket
- Layers for warmth (maybe gloves)

We've recalculated the total due for the trip now that we're not camping (but stopping for dinner). It includes lunch, snacks and dinner - $18. If you've already paid, you will receive a refund.

Finally, if any adults would be willing to ride with us, we would appreciate the help.
