Towpath Trail and Night Ride Update

As of the most recent information that has been made available by the National Park Service, the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail is CLOSED between the Hunt Farm Visitor Center (on Bolanz Rd, south of Peninsula) and the Boston Store Visitor Center (on Boston Mills Rd, north of Peninsula). This is due to flood damage caused by storms earlier this week.

Until further notice, our bicycle rental service in Peninsula is not available. The store remains open for our normal hours for full sales and bicycle maintenance services.

We are keeping our fingers crossed that the trail will be re-opened in time for our Night Ride on the Towpath Trail this Saturday, July 23, featuring free bike headlight demos from NiteRider Technical Lighting Systems. We will announce whether or not the ride is on or cancelled by 3:00pm on Saturday.

We apologize for any inconvenience.
