Gym preparations for Summer include incentives for bicyclists

Gym preparations for Summer include incentives for bicyclists

As we prepare to roll into summer we say a goodbye for the season to our Marquette Climbing Club. This is MU’s fourth year at Turner Hall. The students range from beginners to seasoned veterans.  There were a total of 598 participants for the very successful Monday and Wednesday evening program this Spring. We also say adieu for the summer to the UWM climbing classes in the gym. Both these programs are exemplary partnerships in the Turners’ ongoing mission of being a teaching facility.

 New for the Summer months is Turners’ participation in Bicycle Bingo and the citywide Bicycle Benefits program. In addition to these, the Turners will be working toward promoting more bicycling in Milwaukee as we plan to participate in Wisconsin Bike Week in early June. Stay tuned for more news!

Additionally, Milwaukee Turners, in conjunction with UWM instructor Kim Kosmitis, will be teaching a lead/sport climbing class as well as planning on offering ice climbing classes again soon.
