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