Night Ride on the Towpath Trail to Benefit the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park - Aug. 13, 2016

Our next Night Ride on the Towpath Trail at the Century Cycles store in Peninsula is Saturday, August 13, 2016. This will be a very special Night Ride, as we will be partnering with the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

As usual, the 14-mile bicycle ride is FREE and open to the public, and all ages and skill levels are welcome. Attendees must have their own bicycle, helmet, and headlight, and must sign a waiver before the ride starts. Children under 16 years old must be accompanied by an adult.

The ride begins at 8:00pm from the parking lot of the store, located at 1621 Main Street (State Route 303) in Peninsula. Guests are encouraged to arrive earlier to have plenty of time to find parking, get themselves and their bicycles ready, and sign in.

Staff from the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park will be at the event to accept donations, sign up new memberships, and answer questions about the organization and its mission.

Any person who attends the event and makes a donation to the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park's TRAILS FOREVER Fund (minimun of $1) will be eligible to win a NiteRider Lumina 550 rechargeable bicycle headlight (valued at $110). The drawing for the headlight will be held at 7:50pm; winner must be present.

The Cuyahoga Valley National Park has over 100 miles of trails for hiking, running, bicycling, mountain biking, horseback riding, and cross-country skiing. Funding from the National Park Service alone isn't enough to maintain these trails. The Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park's TRAILS FOREVER Fund helps preserve our precious legacy of trails for future generations.
