The Lombard Rangers conducted their first Bike and Hike event on 7/8/17. Included was a 1 mile bike ride that brought the Rangers to the East Branch of the Dupage river, followed a 1/4 mile hike in the surrounding woods. While in the woods, the Rangers participated in; a basic map reading class, a first aid class for treating minor injuries and creature identification. We wrapped up the event with a discussion about our three core values; respect, responsibility and toughness and explored ways we called upon those values during our trip. Each ranger was respectful of each other, the environment, the trails we used and the other walkers, joggers and bikers using the trail. Each ranger was responsible for his own equipment on the trip and made sure they kept accountability the entire time. Since it was hot and kind of a long ride for our littlest Rangers, toughness was needed to get us all the way home!
