FBRTC: Bike Tour Pictures and Upcoming Events

Thank you to to everyone who participated in the Guided Bike Tour of the SNETT. We saw the good, bad, ugly and future ... of the trail that is (although that formation through the streets of Blackstone was not very pretty either!)  Pictures are posted on the FBRTC Facebook page.

We were pleased to have such a great turn-out for the ride.  A special thanks to Bill Desantis as our guide, Ken Demeo for the shuttle and to all the members who helped plan this event, including: David Labonte, Ed Barth, David Dennison Terri Tomaino, and Dick Tomaino.  Also, thanks Rep. Jeff Roy for this participation in the ride and for his efforts to develop the trail.

We also have some upcoming events that you may be interested in:

Saturday, Sept 28 Autumn Hike/Nature Walk: (in cooperation with the Metacomet Land Trust): Enjoy all the sights, scents and sounds the seasonal changes have to offer on this Saturday morning hike. Family friendly guided activities along approximately. one mile round trip hike. Recognize trees by their scent, bark and leaves; look and listen for signs of wildlife as they prepare for winter. All ages welcome.

Oct 12; Trail Clean-up: Help clean-up and maintain the trail.  We will be working on the Lake to Center Street section.  More details to come.
