GO! Bainbridge, a program of Sustainable Bainbridge, is starting a series of winter walks, nicknamed Poncho Walks. They will run on the first Sunday of each month, November thru March with a goal of helping people stay physically active all year – rain or shine!
On Sunday, November 4, we will leave from the Bainbridge Island Library at 1:30pm. With the guidance of veteran walker and Strider member, Jean Otto, we will follow sidewalks and paths through Winslow. A highlight of the walk will be the visit to Middle Field Farm off of Weaver Road. Larry Nakata will meet us and talk about the history of the farm and its current uses providing local produce to their family’s Town and Country Market.
The walk is about 4 miles in length and will end with hot beverages at the library and a display of maps showing current and proposed trails. Chair of the Non-Motorized Transportation Committee, John Grinter, will be available to answer questions.
As there is always a chance of rain, wearing sturdy shoes and bringing a poncho or other waterproof clothing is advised.
