Ride the Train & Eat at Luigi's

We'll take off from the Rockside Rd towpath trail head and head south about 25 miles to Akron's famous Luigi's Pizza! We'll eat some pizza, drink a few beers, and pick up the CVNP Scenic Railroad at the Akron North Station to head home.

This is a flat & protected trail. Beginner friendly. Speed will try to be about 10-12mph. We'll make a pit stop at the Peninsula Depot at 1630 Mill St W, Peninsula, OH 44264. If you can't / don't want to ride as long please meet there by 1:45p. We should be rolling in about 2:00p there.

The last train leaves Akron North Station at 6pm. So, we'll need to be at Luigi's door at 4pm, right when they open. To do this we'll meet at 12:15 and shove off at 12:30 SHARP

The Bike Aboard program is $3. CASH ONLY! http://www.cvsr.com/bike-aboard

    I'm going to meet up with Sarah and Dana at Peninsula.

    I can lead it from Rockside to Peninsula. That's about 12.5 miles.If you park at the train station, you'll need to take a small detour on your bike to get to the trail head. Less than half a mile. In order to get to Peninsula by 2pm, you only need to keep an average speed of about 8.5 mph. Shouldn't be a problem for most people. Biggest problem will be pedestrians LOLLYGAGGING on the trail. Use your bell and sing out, "on your left" or "passing." The sooner you get to Peninsula, the more time you'll have for stretching & relaxing.

    • Sarah

      Thank you....see you guys in Peninsula around 2:00...we will be by the bathrooms.

      August 30, 2014

  • Sarah

    It's closer for me so I will be starting at Peninsula Lock 29....if anyone else wants to start there (meet by bathrooms).

    August 27, 2014

    • Dana G.

      I will meet you by the bathrooms. What time 1:45?

      August 29, 2014

    • Sarah

      Yes Dana...I will be there at 1:45.

      August 30, 2014

  • Dana G.

    I will be meeting the group in Peninsula with Sarah. I can't be at Rockside in time.

    August 29, 2014

  • Sarah

    Eric...I will lead this ride from Peninsula...someone needs to lead it from Independence to Peninsula. I want to ride back maybe instead of take the train...if anyone else does.

    August 27, 2014

  • eric b.

    Is anyone hosting this ride?

    August 26, 2014

  • Dana G.

    I can't make it by 12:15. What time could I meet you in Brecksville or Peninsula? Last time I tried to do this ride I waited at the depot (as per description above) and no one showed up. Where exactly is the meeting spot?

    August 25, 2014

  • Chuck D.

    Sounds like a great time.
