How great is this? Bikes and affordable housing together in one event! On June 22nd you can participate in the Bike-A-Thon in support of MennoHomes creating affordable housing in our region. The waiting list for affordable housing in our community continues to rise and now exceeds 4,400 households. MennoHomes is in the early stages of developing an exciting new project in Waterloo Region. You can support this project by collecting pledges and participating in the bike-a-thon. Since there is no registration fee, all funds raised will go directly to this new project (donations qualify for a tax receipt). #365ofgoodWR
Bike-a-thon details: Registration starts at 9:00. (if you register online, this process is much quicker!) At 9:30 we will gather for a short greeting along with some words of instruction. Everyone then proceeds to the Kissing Bridge Trail and either head towards West Montrose or Wallenstein. (approx 16 km round-trip either way)
You can travel alone, with your friends, or with someone you've just met. It's not a race! Some participants complete the full 32 km loop while others just go part way. A stop for ice cream in West Montrose is a highlight for many.
We ask that you pace yourself so that everyone is back at the church for a BBQ lunch at noon. After the lunch and door prizes, you will still have plenty of time to enjoy the rest of your day.
