If you missed the chance to get your bike re-tuned for the summer riding season and to contribute to the JTC/PTC at the same time, you have another chance this coming weekend: Friday & Saturday, April 11th & 12th. Peninsula bike shops are offering their support by donating to PTC/JTC all tune-up labor charges during the two two-day event. The shops will donate the value of their labor to PTC/JTC which in turn will use the funds to support its wide range of volunteer trail maintenance activities, work projects, and trail expansion advocacy. During the first two-day period, more than 40 riders in Sequim and Port Angeles had their bikes tuned up, resulting in more than $2,000 in support for JTC/PTC. Surprisingly, only a small handful of riders in the Port Townsend area participated. Nonetheless, the shops and JTC/PTC have strong hopes that interest this coming Friday/Saturday will be healthy in all three Peninsula communities.
This is a unique opportunity that enables bike riders throughout the Peninsula the opportunity to provide critical support to JTC/PTC, the organization that for 25 years has spear-headed the vision of completing the 126-mile long Olympic Discovery Trail, from the Larry Scott Memorial Trail in Port Townsend, west across the Peninsula to the Pacific Ocean at LaPush. Details regarding the donated labor charges vary slightly between the shops, so be sure to check the details for the shop you intend to use.
Please refer to the shop listings below. The Peninsula Trails Coalition (& JTC Chapter) is a 501(c)(3) corporation registered in the State of Washington. For questions on the overall event, please call PTC President Jeff Bohman at 360/457-7536. And be sure to thank the folks at the shop for their service and their support!
