Gear Up for FVTC Trails Safety Expo

Saturday, March 9, 2019
Avon Free Public Library Community Room

11:00am – 3:30pm

The Farmington Valley Trails Council (FVTC) will present their second annual Trails Safety Expo on March 9th, at the Avon Free Public Library at 281 Country Club Road in Avon, CT. This event is open to the public and is free of charge. Our goal with this expo is to promote safety for all who use the trails we treasure and work hard to improve.

Over recent years, we have seen an increase in the number of adults and children using the trails for walking, running and cycling, and by those with limited mobility, each raising their activity level in pursuit of a healthy lifestyle. The Trails Council has worked tirelessly to complete 85 miles of the Farmington Canal Heritage Trail and 26 miles of the Farmington River Trail. With close to 100% completion, we are very pleased that these multi-use trails are being enjoyed by an expanding and varied population of friends, neighbors and visitors.

Please stop by the Expo and visit local vendors and other organizations to see what they have to offer. Here you’ll be able to:

  • *  Find out about upcoming events and bike rides for the 2019 season

  • *  Learn about local programs and groups whether you like to take your
    activity to the trails, the road, or an indoor location.
  •  
  • *  Learn how to properly fit a helmet (bring your own) and how to change a tire or fix a flat.
  •  
  • *  Visit with local vendors to see the latest and greatest in active wear, safety equipment, footwear, and nutritional supplements.
  • *  Find out how to become a FVTC member or volunteer.

    Door prizes and refreshments

    The FVTC looks forward to seeing you there!

  • This program is not sponsored by the Avon Free Public Library.
