 NY 5 Boro Bike Tour – May 5, 2019

Once in a while Louis and I find a neat, unusual, fun or exciting trail we want to ride and we just go. We have a mailing list over 50 people we shout out to when we ride somewhere locally during the week or weekend.  Soooo… If you live in the NW Arkansas area heads up … Sometimes Ben recruits us to get a group together and go to new places. Ben wants to go to New York so he has planned a trip… and the details are below. If you want the updates… go to Dogwood Junction Business Page here: Junction

Exciting News… IF YOU *** MOVE FAST! ***  Ben wants to take 10 people to NYC in May and ride the Five Boro Bike Tour. It is 40 miles seeing safely awesome views of NY. To add to this awesome trip 4 hours touring Washington DC on a trike. Look at the Flyer and call Ben ASAP … all registrations have to be in by Jan. 31st and ONLY 10 Registrations can go on this trip.
