Hi, <<First Name>>!

Welcome back to the Richmond Parks & Recreation weekly newsletter! 

Classrooms are filling up with enthusiastic learners of all ages and the nights are cooling off thanks to Autumn's refreshing breeze.

With the changing of seasons comes several opportunities to reconnect with nature, move with friends and family, and lend a helping hand to make our community even more vibrant!

We hope you enjoy these brief glimpses into our Fall programming.

The Glen Miller Hill Challenge Set in to High Gear!

This past Saturday was another successful biking event by the Richmond Rose Pedals. This 10 mile ride took riders over hills, bridges, and beautiful landscape right here in our Glen Miller Park. The uniquely crafted monthly rides have a new theme each month to showcase the many amazing biking trails and locations with a variety of levels of difficulty to tailor to any type of rider. It's a great way to explore our community while meeting new people. If you are interested in next month's ride keep a lookout for Richmond Rose Pedals social media as well as ours to find out more information. These are monthly rides that occur on the first Saturday of every month starting at 10:30 at Jack Elstro Plaza where a social hour precedes the event. The social event has cookies, coffee, and goodie bags from Reid Community Benefit.
