4th Annual Lake to Lake Harvest Bike Tour - September 14, 2019

Join us for a scenic ride through parks, small towns and rural Medina County!

On Sept. 14, 2019 bicyclists will set out on Medina County’s scenic back roads and park trails for the fourth-annual Lake to Lake Harvest Bike Tour.

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 entirely on park trails -- ride whatever distance suits you! There's a 15-mile route with turnaround options that combines park trails and Chippewa Lake village streets. 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, 6335 Wedgewood Lane in Medina.

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.

Registration forms are available at Century Cycles, 1059 North Court Street in Medina, and at Medina County Park District Headquarters, 9364 Deerview Lane in Lafayette Township. Online registration, as well as printable registration forms, are available here.

Registration also is available on the day of the event. Registration for the 32- and 50-mile rides is from 7:30 a.m. to 8 a.m. Registration for the casual / family ride and the 15-mile ride is from 9 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. The course closes at 2 p.m.

The cost is $15 per person for the 15-mile ride ($20 if postmarked after Aug. 31). The cost for the 32- and 50-mile rides is $25 per person ($30 if postmarked after Aug. 31). Children 10 and under ride free. Helmets are required for all riders, and red blinking taillights are required on the 32- and 50-mile routes.

New film "Music for Free" from Salsa Cycles - watch FREE for 48 hours only!

In the summer of 2018, musician Ben Weaver and filmmaker Keenan DesPlanques took on the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route on the Music for Free tour. Riding self-supported with instruments and camera gear, they stopped for 16 scheduled performances along the 3,000-mile route, which stretches from Banff, Alberta, Canada to Antelope Wells, New Mexico. The Salsa Cycles sponsored film documents their beautiful journey down this iconic American corridor, exploring wilderness, what it means to be wild, and examining the common denominators we all hold dear as human beings who share this planet.
From 6:00pm Friday, August 16th to 6:00pm on Sunday, August 18th, 2019 (Eastern time), anyone can watch the film via online streaming for free.

Night Ride on the Towpath Trail with Conservancy for CVNP - Sat. Aug. 10, 2019

Century Cycles invites you to our next Night Ride on the Towpath Trail! Experience the most popular bike trail in Northeast Ohio in a new way -- in the dark!

When: Saturday, August 10, 2019
Where: Century Cycles, 1621 Main Street, Peninsula, OH  44264

We suggest that you plan to arrive in Peninsula around 7:00pm to have plenty of time to find parking, get yourself and your bike ready, sign in, and enjoy the pre-ride activities.

We'll be joined by the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park, the non-profit partner of CVNP. The bike ride is FREE as usual, but anyone who makes a donation to or joins the Conservancy will be entered into our raffle for great prizes!

The Conservancy for CVNP supports our national park with events, educational programs, and maintaining trails and facilities, including the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail and the East Rim Mountain Bike Trails.

We'll draw for prizes at 7:45pm, then the ride will start promptly at 8:00pm.

The ride is entirely on the car-free Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail. We'll ride SOUTH from Peninsula to the Botzum Trailhead and back, about 14 miles total. You can turn around sooner if you don't want to ride the entire distance.

You must have your own bicycle, helmet, and headlight. All ages are welcome with an adult parent or guardian. No pre-registration is necessary.

If you've never been on one of our Night Rides on the Towpath Trail before, go to www.centurycycles.com/for/NightRides for complete details, including our full schedule of rides, directions, preparation and safety tips, and photos from past rides.
