Leader: Lee Rabideau at lrrabideau@comcast.net

Several years ago the Frederick Pedalers adopted Bethel Road between Mountaindale Road and O’Possumtown Pike. Two or three times a year members of the Frederick Pedalers gather at the church parking lot at Bethel Road and O’Possumtown Pike and walk to Mountaindale Road while picking up trash. Trash bags and bright vests are provided to those who come out. The bags are left at a spot where the county comes and picks them up. Lee Rabideau is looking for lots of help!
