Senior Biking Jan 2015

The Sitka office of the Southeast Alaska Independent Living, Inc. (SAIL), will host its monthly ride for its new Senior Biking Club for those 60 or older from 10-11:30 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 8. Meet at the SAIL office at 514 Lake St., and the ride will start from there.

This month’s ride will be along Sawmill Creek Road from Whale Park to Sawmill Cove and back, about four miles total, on the new multi-use trail that opened in 2014. The group is training for a seven-mile ride from downtown to the end of Halibut Point Road in Summer 2015.

The Senior Biking Club is modeled after SAIL’s Senior Hiking Club. The biking club costs $10 per person, and cyclists can use their own bikes or reserve one of SAIL’s bikes for the ride. SAIL has two-wheel and three-wheel bikes available, for those needing to borrow one.

To learn more about the Senior Biking Club, senior and adaptive kayaking trips, senior hiking events, and and a variety of other outdoors skills and survival classes, contact SAIL ORCA (Outdoor Recreation and Community Access) program coordinator Bridget Kratz at 747-6859 or email her at bkratz@sailinc.org. The calendar below includes hiking, orienteering, kayaking, and other events for seniors, youth, and the disabled.
