The Dinner Optimist Club of Edmonton held their annual Cub Bikeree on Saturday May 10th from about 9:00am until 5:00pm through the Edmonton River Valley.
On a cool to cold day with occasional snowflakes, approximately 160 Cub Scouts and 60 leaders bravely rode bicycles over a 14 kilometer designated course stopping at a number of places for safety checks on bikes and helmets; information sessions; plus events to test riding skills. Scoring points were earned and listed for each Cub participant. Food and drinks were provided to all the riders.
Leduc Optimist members Barbara, Connie, Ian, Ray, Bob and Shayne attended to assist at various locations with differing tasks.
Despite the chill, it was an enjoyable day for all involved. Congratulations to Edmonton Dinner Club for another successful event.
