Bicyclists will set out on Medina County’s scenic back roads and park trails for the third annual Lake to Lake Harvest Bike Tour.
When: Saturday, September 15, 2018
Where: Buckeye Woods Park, 6335 Wedgewood Lane, Medina, OH 44256
The ride is presented by Bike Medina County in conjunction with the Medina County Bicycle Transportation Task Force. Its goal is to promote bicycle safety in the community through education, improved signage, new trails, and special events. All proceeds from the Lake to Lake Harvest Bike Tour go right back into promoting safe cycling in Medina County.
The event offers a family/casual ride of approximately 15 miles, mostly on Medina County Park District trails, with a rest stop in the Village of Chippewa Lake. Experienced cyclists can choose from routes of approximately 32 or 50 miles that encompass rolling hills, small towns, lake views, points of interest, and the beautiful autumn countryside. All rides begin and end at Buckeye Woods Park.
The Lake to Lake Harvest Bike Tour includes: marked routes, maps, SAG support, water stops, snack stops on the longer routes, and lunch upon completion of the ride. Riders who pre-register receive a free T-shirt.
