Last week was prime season for long-distance bicycle touring, with at least four different groups stopping by the Century Cycles store in Peninsula:
www.teamgcc.com), for their alma mater of Grove City College.
You can view more photos of touring cyclists that have stopped in all three of our stores in our Bicycle Touring Photo Gallery. Many of the people riding through our area are using two routes created by the Adventure Cycling Association: the Northern Tier Route, and the Underground Railroad Route.
The Adventure Cycling Association is now accepting nominations for the 2012 Bicycle Travel Awards, which include the Pacesetter Bicycle Travel Award, June Curry Trail Angel Award, Sam Braxton Bicycle Shop Award, and the Volunteer of the Year Award.
