The Sitka Cycling Club and Sitka Tribe of Alaska will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 2, for the new Protect the Herring bike rack, at the Sheet’ká Kwáan Naa Kahídi. The bike rack was made locally by Mike Litman of Precision Boatworks in Sitka.

After the ribbon-cutting ceremony, the Sitka Cycling Club’s monthly group ride will start there and be in honor of Native American Heritage Month. The ride will go to Japonski Island to ride on the new trail there, see Sitka’s first fix-it station (at the SEARHC Employee Health Gym) and visit the The Kootéeyaa Project totem, which represents the Native journey to wellness.

After that the group will ride to the Salty Spoke Bike Co-op (in a back room at the Hames Center) for a mini workshop on fixing a flat and maintaining your chain. All helmeted cyclists are welcome to join the free ride.     

For more information call Doug Osborne at 738-8734 or douglaso@searhc.org.
