GO! Bainbridge plans first walk

GO! Bainbridge, a program of Sustainable Bainbridge, is starting a series of winter walks nicknamed Poncho Walks.

On the first Sunday of every month from November to March, the group will lead walks to various parts of Bainbridge Island.

The first walk is from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 4 and will start at the Bainbridge Public Library.  With the guidance of veteran walker and Strider member Jean Otto, the group will follow trails and sidewalks around Winslow with a stop at Middle Field Farm off of Weaver Road, where Larry Nakata will talk about this historic farm. The farm currently provides local produce to the Town and Country Market.

The walks ends with hot drinks at the library and a display of maps with current and proposed trails. John Grinter, chairman of the Non-Motorized Transportation Committee, will be available to answer questions.

Walkers should wear a poncho or other rain gear. Organizers said the walk is about 3 miles long and fairly flat.
