On Saturday, June 21st the Friends of Linwood Park is sponsoring a Summer Solstice Park-to-Park Bike Ride. Meet at Linwood Park ( corner of Athens Ave and Linwood Ave in Ardmore) at 10:00 am to go over some bike safety and bike maintenance and then commence, en masse, on a low stress approximately 13 mile ride from Linwood Park, to South Ardmore Park, Wynnewood Valley Park, Shortridge Park, Lower Merion Botanic Garden, the Cynwyd Trail, a stop at Main Line Cycles, to Sabine Park and back to Linwood. We will be traveling by low car, low stress roadways to emphasize how to get around the township without feeling as if you may be plowed down by a Yukon! This ride will also get us acquainted with better ways of biking around the Township and Narberth and helping us get to know our parks and their amazing attributes! It is the first in a series of bike rides that will coordinate with the Lower Merion Township bike plan that is being developed. We will stop briefly at each park and speak with members of the Friends groups. You can join the ride on the way or for the whole route. This ride is FREE and recommended for adults and older kids only – no little guys on this one. Thanks to partners Lower Merion Conservancy, Main Line Cycles, Lower Merion Botanical Society, and the Friends of the Cynwyd Trail. Thanks also to Chris Leswing for the map! Just show up on the 21st , no registration necessary. For more info or to help out, please contact Kate Galer of the Friends of Linwood Park at
