Cycling Merit Badge 15-mile Ride


Sunday, December 2 from 1 to 4pm.

The Ride:

We plan to ride the bike path next to the Orange Metro Line from Chatsworth to North Hollywood.  This is an 18-Mile oneway trip and should be a great urban bike excursion. 

We will roll at 1PM from our starting point in Chatsworth to our destination in North Hollywood.

Cyclist Drop off – roll at 1PM

Orange Metro Line on Lassen – just east of Owensmouth

Cyclist Pick up – Pick up by 4PM

North Hollywood at Chandler and Lankershim Blvd

Times and things can change.  Please stay on the lookout for email updates.

IMPORTANT: Please sign up ASAP.  Use TAB <15-Mile # 1>.  Mr. Grace needs to know who to expect.  Due to daylight, we will be rolling at 1PM sharp.  

You will need to bring water, a helmet, and a snack.  Stay tuned for a list of questions and cycling details you should know!

Union Station Homeless Services tent set up

Thanks to all Scouts and adults who turned up on a beautiful Thanksgiving morning to set up the tents used as the “kitchen” to serve hot Thanksgiving meals to those without homes or reliable food access.  It was a challenge to wrangle incomplete and mixed tent kits without matching instructions, but with determination and ingenuity, the job was done!

A great weekend of service!

Thanks to all the Scouts and Scouters that served the community this past weekend. 

The weekend started Friday evening with T4 Scouts delivering our collected bags of food to the Altadena Food Bank. The Troop had worked with Westminster church for many weeks collecting the food (thanks to all the generous T4 contributors!) for delivery prior to Thanksgiving. Friday evening T4 loaded bags of food into parent’s cars, and then delivered it to the Food Bank. The hardworking Scouts are pictured below.

On Saturday Jose Amezcua had his Eagle project at Westminster. He and his crew repaired the badly damaged sidewalk (a real safety hazard) on the Lake Ave. side of the church. Jose had spent several months planing the project. T4 Scouts and Scouters again turned out to serve the community, and the results were spectacular. Great job Jose and crew!
