The 4th Annual BAFLTAFR on September 23rd will be beginning at Chautauqua Park.
Bike Around the Fairfield Loop Trail Annual Fun Ride, or BAFLTAFR for short, is a great family-friendly event. Grab your family and
friends for a fun day around the loop trail, and don’t forget your bike.
Just like the concept of a walking tour, we will take you on a biking adventure on the trail unlike any you have done before. We will have short informational stops along the Loop Trail. Construction has closed part of the trail so we will be doing a turnaround this year. Starting at Chautauqua Park and going to Cedar Creek and back will make for 18 miles of family fun together.
Come explore the many microenvironments as you roll through gently sloping hills, conifer forests, wetlands, cornfields, creeks, lakes and deciduous forests. At each juncture, meet a knowledgeable guide who will tell you something about the local nature or community you didn’t already know!
“Quality family time is important! This event allows the family to get out and enjoy each other’s company. With school just beginning, family schedules will soon start filling with all things school, sports, art, etc. There’s nothing better than getting to hang out together as a family, away from all those daily distractions like work and screens. Take an adventure together on the trails.” Mendy McAdams, Fairfield Chamber of Commerce Executive Director
There will be snacks and water along the route along with SAG support if you need it. There will also be swag bags given to each rider at registration. RSVP for the ride by emailing [email protected] or calling 641-472-2111.
There is a $20 registration fee for each rider over 12 with children under 12 free with a paid adult. There is a $30 max for families. We want all participants to have a fun and safe adventure on the trail. We look forward to spending time with you on the loop trail!
