“After 14 years, Century Cycles Night Rides on the Towpath Trail are more popular than ever, with each ride averaging 75 – 100 people riding everything from tandems to mountain bikes,” says Scott Cowan, owner of Century Cycles. “It’s a thrill to help people discover the joys of riding a bicycle at night. I recommend folks plan to arrive early – to have plenty of time to get ready for the ride – and plan to leave late, since the group usually ends up at the Winking Lizard after the ride, trading stories of past cycling adventures.”
