long branch trail to quarry park

Saturday, March 24, 2 p.m.
Join Winston-Salem Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator Matthew Burczyk for a fun-paced ride from downtown to Quarry Park and back by way of Long Branch Trail, Salem Creek Greenway and Peachtree Greenway. The Long Branch Trail is the city's newest greenway and runs through Wake Forest Innovation Quarter. Quarry Park is the city's newest park, offering a spectacular view of downtown Winston-Salem from the observation pier. The total distance will be about 9 miles with a couple of hills to climb, though no one will be left behind. Bring a bike in good working order  and stick around after the ride for a beverage at Krankies and a discussion of bicycle and pedestrian matters in Winston-Salem.

Meet at Krankies Coffee at Third St. and Patterson Ave.
