Event: BAMBA & Vermont Adaptive Off Road Adaptive Demo Day

Location: Mount Penn Preserve Trails, 2 List Rd. Reading, Pa. 19606
We're very happy to be teaming up with Vermont Adaptive to put on a day of Veteran and adaptive athlete outreach and off road handcycle awareness on the beautiful Mount Penn Preserve Trails. Rides will start at 9am and the last ride will leave at approximately 5pm (Vermont Adaptive has a limited amount of mountain handcycles which are disability specific, there will be an online ride schedule to sign up for a bike and ride time). We will also need plenty of volunteers for this day to assist with the adaptive rides. Lunch will be provided by BAMBA. We hope you can join us for this awesome and very fulfilling event. Any questions, please contact John Pacharis at Jp1974@ptd.net
