CALL FOR ACTION!

Do you like riding bikes? Do you also like helping those in need in our community? Then come out to the OBB Saturday Ride on December 9th and join the Wheelers Backpack Challenge!

 

For the last few years, our cycling friends at Tripleshot have organised a ride in early December where club members show up with a backpack filled with food items to be donated to the Mustard Seed food bank. Last year they collected over 800 lbs of food items, and this year they have challenged the Wheelers to surpass this amount! So, we are calling on all our members to come to the December 9th Saturday ride at 9am with a backpack of non-perishable food donations!

 

The plan is to ride together (with our full packpacks!) to Willows Beach park where donations will be dropped off before continuing on with the remainder of the regular ride. Backpacks can be dropped off too and will be returned to their owners after the ride.
