On Saturday, October 18, some members of Carlisle’s Boy Scout Troop 135 braved the cold to go on a 50-mile bicycle ride, in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the Boy Scout Cycling Merit Badge. The ride took them as far east as Cambridge and as far south as Weston. The ride was led by James Chuang, assisted by Tom Hedden and Scoutmaster Peter Tocci. This is the fifth group of Boy Scouts for which Chuang has served as counselor for the Cycling Merit Badge.
