End your weekend with a smile or begin your week with one. Join us for a guided ride The ride
will be approximately 10 miles of dirt, pavement, and gravel, or shorter pavement rides. You
choose. Somewhat like a Neapolitan ice cream blend with lots of different flavors... What a great opportunity to mix with other bike maniacs, enjoy a snack, and have a great time.
Paddle for NICA
In Memory of Brian
A Legacy Paddle in memory of Brian Boyle- Wilderness Park Trail boss approx. 7 years. Brian’s
earth time ended on August 10,2023, when he lost his battle with cancer.
“The first year Brian started the Croom paddle it was just the two of us, Brian and
me, David Karlen. It was a rainy Sunday morning after the 35/50 ride - 2019 I think or maybe
2020? We spent a half hour sheltering under the I-75 bridge waiting for the rain to slow down
then we paddled down river to Nobelton and had lunch at a riverside restaurant. There was a
canoe rental place next door, and we paid the guy there too transport us back to Silver Lake.
Anyway, I want to see this tradition continue as a tribute to Brian.”
Please join David Karlen and Swamp on this paddle in memory of Brian. The proceeds collected
will help build the Brian Boyle Scholarship fund for NICA.
9:00am-12:00pm Sunday, Feb 4
