Hike, bike, travel club to host open house

Staff Writer

Maumee Valley Adventurers, a hike, bike and travel club dedicated to providing low-cost recreation opportunities for all ages, will hold a community open house Saturday, April 8 from 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m. at the King Road Branch Library.
During the open house, members of the club will be available to talk about what they have to offer and invite members of the community to join their activities.
MVA was formed a dozen years ago and hosts weekly group walks and bike rides, a popular winter Travel Circle speakers’ series, bike touring, social events and four annual bicycle tours that are the organization’s primary fundraisers. The club has more than 250 members.
MVA is also a co-sponsor, with We Are Traffic, of the region’s Cycling Without Age chapter, which uses specially designed bicycles to give bike rides to people who cannot ride on their own. One of its bicycles can accommodate a wheelchair. The two organizations also work together on the annual Ride of Silence, held in May to remember those killed in bicycling accidents and to promote safety awareness at the start of the cycling season.
Three workshops will be presented during the open house:
•10 a.m.: “How to Get Involved in MVA,” by Scott Carpenter.
• 11 a.m.: “Bike Touring 101,” by Nancy Beeman.
• 1:15 p.m.: “Cycling Without Age,” by Keith Webb.
More information about the club is available at MVAdventurers.org and on the organization’s Facebook page.
