The Annual Pack 130 Bike Rally is almost here! Since the next Pack meeting is not until just before the event, this email is being sent early to ensure Scouts have enough time to get pledges for our charity.

Versoix Woods, Route du Pont de Bossy, 1239 Collex-Bossy

Why:

The Pack Bike Rally is a fundraiser. Scouts ride laps around a path in the Versoix woods to raise money for the Pack Charity. Before the event, Scouts should use the attached sponsor sheet to get pledges for a certain amount of money per lap. (Each lap is approximately 2.5km). After the Bike Rally, Scouts collect the money pledged.

Scouts are encouraged to ride for the full 90 minutes.
Tigers should aim to ride at least 3 laps, Wolves at least 4 laps, Bears at least 5 laps, Webelos at least 6 laps and AOL at least 7 laps.

What To Bring:

  • Your bike
  • A helmet! HELMETS ARE OBLIGATORY FOR ALL RIDERS.

Please be on time as Scouts need to register before the event and get their bib number. There will be awards for Scouts with the most laps biked and the most money raised. Siblings and parents can join the ride for fun!

The rally will only be cancelled if the weather is really bad. If you are in doubt, check your e-mail on the day of the event.
