ncbikers brought up an interesting question. He wondered how many, if any, of us had earned a Bicycling Merit Badge back during their Scouting days.
I did also, as a Boy Scout in troup #138.
As I recall the requirements were to have completed six 25 mile rides, one 50 mile ride, and demonstrate a basic ability to perform routine maintainance and repairs to your bike. I rode my old Columbia all over the County that summer. Who says you can't tour on a Coaster Brake Cruiser?
I can even remember my Dad driving me to the moderator / counselor's nice stucco house on West Ridge Road between Lake Ave. and the Veterans Bridge. I can remember being a bit nervous about meeting and talking with him. He was swell and I was proud to have earned that badge. I wonder where it is now?
Any other Bicycling Merit Badge holders out there?
