Looking for a getaway to enjoy the outdoors from a bicycle seat is a great way to view nature and to get exercise in the process.
If you’re an outdoors enthusiast looking for new places for you and your family to pedal, be sure to sign up for the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) virtual program “Top 10 Series: Bike Trails,” according to a press release.
This free program, which will be from 2:30-3:30 p.m. Sept. 1, is part of a year-long “Top 10” series of programs being put on by the staff of MDC’s Shoal Creek Conservation in Joplin.
This program is open to all ages. People can register at mdc-event-web.s3licensing.com/Event/EventDetails/177214
At the Sept. 1 program, Smith will talk about the length and difficulty of each trail that will be highlighted. He’ll also discuss problems cyclists may encounter on a trail and the essentials that need to be taken on any outdoor cycling trip.
Though this program is free, registration is required to participate using the link above. Registrants must provide an e-mail, so a program link can be sent to them. This program will include a chat-based question-and-answer period where participants can interact with the presenters.
