Mountain Biking Campout at Huntsville State Park-- November 11-13

Do you like biking?  Are you interested in working on the Eagle Required Cycling Merit Badge or a specialized campout needed for Eagle required Camping MB requirement 9b? 

If so, come join us at the November 11-13th Mountain Biking and Webelos Campout at Huntsville State Park hosted by the Crawdad Patrol.  We will have Mr. Beckman, one of our Troop 266 Cycling MB counselors,  join us for the weekend to help with MB requirements.   Also, we will be hosting and cooking for Webelos 1 and Arrow of Light scouts on Saturday and Sunday.  

Don't own a mountain bike or outgrew your bike?  Bike Barn's manager, Adam Benton (at the downtown Bayou Rentals location), is offering us a discounted weekend rate for Hybrid bikes that includes the mandatory helmet for use on Huntsville State Park Trails.  Each family can rent a bike individually as needed.  They usually don't rent on rainy days, so please check the Huntsville weekend weather and call Bike Barn ahead to make sure they will be open on Friday, Nov 11th.  See the information below and mention you are with Troop 266 if you rent a bike.  You will be responsible for taking good care of the rental bike during the campout.
