FANS will offer treats and bev­er­ages for sale at each con­cert. Please, no pets or alco­hol. Pack it in, pack it out.

Shaw Island Bike Ride

Sun­day July 31
Depart Fri­day Har­bor on the 11:35 a.m. fer­ry, return by 5:05 p.m.

Join Island Rec for a free sum­mer ride on love­ly, bike friend­ly Shaw Island. Take the fer­ry for free on your bikes and choose to ride either the sev­er­al longer loop rides on the island or ride the easy two-mile fair­ly lev­el, paved roads to the Shaw Coun­ty Park. Bring a pic­nic and enjoy an after­noon at the sandy beach.

An Island Rec ‘sag wag­on’ will fol­low rid­ers to make sure no flat tires or oth­er issues stop any­one from get­ting to the park or back home. Every­one will meet at the Shaw fer­ry land­ing to review the map, route and check their gear and bikes. If you’ve nev­er had the chance to check out Shaw Island, this is a great way to do so. No pre-reg­is­tra­tion required, just come with your hel­mets and bikes. All young rid­ers must have a par­ent or guardian with them.

Please check islandrec.org in July for any poten­tial fer­ry sched­ule changes for this event.
