Scott Park, located behind Decatur Recreation Center, is closed this morning. We are having tree work done and it is not safe for visitors. Check back for updates.

Thank you for your patience.

Family Bike Ride Cancelled

We were hoping the rain would pass but it’s not looking good. Roads are wet and unsafe for our young riders. We will try another day.

Don’t forget about our Mural Signal Box walking tour tomorrow at 10am. We’ll start and end at Decatur Recreation Center. See you there!

Check Your Bike Before Each Ride

An easy way to make sure your bike is in good working order is to do an ABC Quick Check.

Air: Be sure you have enough air in your tires
Brakes: Look to see that your brake pads are not worn
Chain and Cranks: Pull on your cranks to see that they are not loose and look to see that the chain is not rusted and it is free of gunk
Quick Release: Make sure all quick releases are closed
Check: Take a slow brief ride to check that your bike is working properly
