FAB May/June Newsletter

Summer is upon us and there's no shortage of reasons to enjoy being outside. We hope you'll join us on some FAB rides and don't forget, Tour Sioux Falls is coming.

123 Youth Skills and Ice Cream Ride

Hey kids! Grab your bikes, friends, and parents, and come to a free and fun bicycle skills and safety event hosted by Falls Area Bicyclists and SD EMS for Children.

Bring your helmet if you have one or SD EMS will have helmets for you can keep if you need one. Certified bicycling instructors will give a short discussion and there will be a fun obstacle course set up to test your skills.

We'll practice what we've learned with a fun family ride to B&G Milkyway. Ice cream treats compliments of FAB. Meet at Explorer Elementary School at noon on May 27th.

FAB Overnight with RASDAK

Come ride with FAB and head out to meet RASDAK as they roll from Salem into Sioux Falls. We'll leave Sioux Falls Friday June 9th (Departure time and location TBA) and ride about 50 miles to Salem. We'll spend the evening enjoying the RASDAK festivities and camp with the group. The next morning, we ride back to Sioux Falls with the entire tour. It's sure to be a party!

It's only $40.00 to register for a single day of RASDAK, so this is a great opportunity to try out bicycle touring. Your registration covers camping and a day of riding with RASDAK.
