On Sunday, June 22, BuddyBike will hold their 2nd Annual Buddy Bike Group Ride in Ohio. The ride will take place on the scenic Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail, located in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. This is a relatively flat, crushed-limestone-surfaced trail.
The Buddy Bike Group Ride will start at the Boston Store in Boston Township. Riders will travel south to the Beaver Marsh Boardwalk Viewing Platform to observe wildlife and enjoy the scenic natural surroundings. Riders will turn around to return to The Village of Peninsula for lunch and to visit this quaint village which features shops, art galleries and historic landmarks. Riders will travel approximately 14 miles round-trip or they may opt to turn around at any point to shorten the ride distance.
All bicycles are welcome, so feel free to invite your friends! A limited number of Buddy Bikes will be provided by reservation. For safety, Buddy Bike asks that ALL riders wear helmets on their Group Rides, not just the kids! Children must be accompanied by parents at all times.
If you would like to join the ride but prefer not to bike ride or would like to enjoy a full day of fun, visit the Buddy Bike web site for links to other activities and informational sites.
What to bring: Cold beverages will be provided. There are no fees to participate, but please bring money for lunch at one of the Peninsula Village restaurants. Items to bring: helmets, sunblock, bug spray, camera, spare inner tubes and/or patch kits, bike locks and money for lunch.
