Bike Park Opening

Yesterday afternoon was the official opening of the Moose Jaw Police Association Bike Skills Park.  It was great to see several club members attend, hit some jumps and pump it at that pump track.  During the ceremony the Pavers were presented with this plaque for our contributions to the Park.  The Pavers are also listed on the impressive looking sign for the Park.

Thank you’s…

Thank you Darren for purchasing the club bike and offering to give it that would benefit from it.  The bike was given to a family who recently moved to Moose Jaw from the Congo.  The club purchased a helmet and lock for them as well so that they can be safe.  A big thank-you needs to be extended to Pierre and Fabien for helping with the communication as the family mainly speaks French.  Shortly after fitting the helmet the older kids were taking turns doing laps in the backyard and there was lots of joyous giggles.
