Upcoming Programs and Events

Summer Bike Rides
Thursday, August 16 at 9:00 a.m.

Join fellow SAIL members for a congenial 15-mile group ride on the Military Ridge path to Verona and back. We will start and end at the Odana Hills Golf course parking lot. Of course, this will be another “civilized” SAIL ride, so we’ll be sure to stop for coffee and conversation in Verona.

Please meet at Odana with your bicycles, ready for a good time.
