Sun, Jun 25: Rescheduled to Sat Jul 8 Bicycle the Madrid-Waddington loop This is a 25 miles scenic road loop going down to the St. Lawrence through Chipman Corners, stops at several parks on the river, and then back to Madrid along the Grasse. Largely flat. Moderate. Contact Tom Ortmeyer, 315-244-3707 or tortmeye@gmail.com.

Sat, Jul 1: Robert Moses State Park, Massena Bike and Hike We will explore the park on our bicycles and a quick pass on foot for the Nature Center trails and new just opened Nature Center building. We will try to see a ship going through Eisenhower Lock and the Hawkins Point Visitor Center. I estimate we will bike ~10 miles around the park and walk 1-2 miles on the Nature Center trails. Relatively flat easy terrain. If there is interest, we could consider going to the beach afterwards and there are fireworks in Massena at the mall that evening. Family friendly event.
