Boy Scouts Troop 182 Return to Assist at Crossings for BACooN RIDE

The Boy Scouts from Troop 182 in Ankeny and adult leaders will be at BACooN RIDE 4 to help riders get through the trail crossing safer.  They will warn cyclists of some potential hazards, such as oncoming vehicles or gravel, but will not yell “CLEAR”.  Cyclists need to make their own decision that is it safe to cross the intersections.  There are approximately 50 crossings on the Raccoon River Valley Trail.

Some of the scouts will be selling cold water for $1 and gatorade for $2 at their crossing with funds being used to help pay for their summer camp.

The BACooN RIDE will also make a contribution to the Boy Scouts for their assistance.  Be sure to say hello to these fine young men.
