Trail marker unveiling party June 12
PULLMAN - Pullman Civic Trust invites the public to a party celebrating the addition of markers to the Pullman Loop Trail System.
The Trail marker unveiling ceremony will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday, June 12 at Pine Street Plaza on Main Street in Pullman. All nine logo markers will be on display, together with a trail system map.
The occasion will allow people to meet the artist, David Hoyt, who was inspired by nature in his creation of the logo designs. Mayor Glenn Johnson, on behalf of the City of Pullman, will accept the markers from Pullman Civic Trust, who initiated the project, raised funds, collaborated in planning, and purchased the markers.
A “Trail Trivia” activity will provide each participant with a free entry for a door prize drawing. Music and balloons will complement the festivities. The party will then travel the Downtown Riverwalk to the Koppel Farm shelter, where refreshments and the door prize drawing will complete the celebration. Trail logo items will be available for purchase, with proceeds going to further the work of Pullman Civic Trust. Further information on the celebration is available by calling 509-338-9108.
PULLMAN - Nine WSU community members on May 19 took part in the first of three “Prepare Your Bike” summer maintenance clinics in the WSU Wellbeing Fix it Bike Shop within the Hollingbery Fieldhouse Annex.
Each clinic is one hour long. The remaining two clinics, repeats of the first, will be held 4:30-5:30 p.m. June 23 and July 21.
The free clinics assist bicyclists with specific bike problems, including how to change and patch a tire, adjust gears, appropriate bike height, and ensure that bikes are roadworthy and ready for a trip across campus, town, or state lines, said Jamie Bentley, environmental wellbeing coordinator for WSU Wellbeing. Clinics also include discussion of bike nomenclature and ‘fit.’
Clinics are open to anyone who has a WSU Cougar Card. To register for the other clinics and for additional information, visit the Green Bikes website
or call 335-WELL (9355).
Those with a WSU Cougar Card may rent bike tools at the Bike Fix-It Shop and use the shop space to fix their personal bikes free of charge using tools and work stands.
