Our 20th Season of Night Rides on the Towpath Trail kicks off this Saturday!
Join us at the Century Cycles store in Peninsula on Saturday, April 26, 2014 for the first ride of our 20th season of Night Rides on the Towpath Trail!
Our ever-popular Night Rides have been featured in Bicycling Magazine as "One of America's Great Group Rides," in Bicycle Times magazine, and even The Huffington Post!
These rides are FREE, fun, casual (not a race), and family-friendly. You must have your own bicycle, helmet, and headlight. No pre-registration is necessary, but you must sign a waiver when you arrive.
The rides starts promptly at 8:00pm, so arrive a little early to make sure you have time to park your car, get yourself and your bike ready, and sign in. See this article for other tips on planning and preparation, plus these Night Ride Safety Tips. The store will be open before the ride in case you need any last-minute supplies or service.
The ride is about 14 miles long, which takes most people about 90 minutes to 2 hours. You can ride at your own pace, and if you're not feeling up to the full 14 miles, you can turn around and head back at any time. Most folks head next door after the ride to The Winking Lizard Tavern for a post-ride snack and to re-live past cycling adventures!
