Community invited to casual bike rides first Saturday of month

The public is invited to join a naturalist on a casual bike ride on the Central Lakes State Trail, starting at Big Ole in Alexandria, on the first Saturday of every month until September.

Each ride will increase in length, culminating with the longest ride of the season in September.

The upcoming ride, August 3, will take place at 9 a.m. and consist of about a 12-mile round trip tour. Helmets are strongly encouraged.

Following the last ride in September, those participating are welcome to attend a celebratory ice cream social.

Big Ole is located one block north of Broadway Street and 3rd Avenue in Alexandria.
