PhinneyWood Round-Up – July 25th – City Cycle, Local Boy Scouts, and Panda Poll Results

It’s hard for us all to keep up with everything going on these days. PhinneyWood is here to help you stay up to date on some of the latest happenings around the neighborhood.

City Cycle classes will start back up on August 3rd. They will be following the latest guidelines of only 5 riders per class until they can include more, so be sure to reserve your spot well in advance. Schedules will be released one week at a time with booking starting at 12pm on Sundays. The first booking opportunity will go live on August 2nd for the following week, so set your reminders!

A big shout out to a couple of local boy scout troops! Troop 121 (pictured) and Troop 100 recently partnered with the PNA Village to help some of our neighborhood elders. Each troop is helping a local senior take care of their yard and garden. Great work scouts!

The Woodland Park Zoo’s red panda naming poll results are in! The name chosen for one of the cubs is Tián (TEA-en), meaning “sweet” in Mandarin. His twin brother is named Zan (rhymes with van), meaning help and support. Both names are Mandarin, a nod to the species’ native land in China. Red pandas are found in the southern Himalayan foothills, from India to China and as far south as Myanmar. The cubs were born May 25 to mom Hazel and dad Yukiko.
