Ride Name: 31 - Life is good... the river, the wine, and cycling on a summer evening
Trail: Portage Bike and Hike Trail: Riverside Wine (Crain Avenue Trailhead) to Towner’s Woods County Park
Ride Type: Out and Back
Distance: 8.0+ miles
Tonight’s ride is one of our most popular summertime evening rides. We park in the north overflow parking lot of Riverside Wine and cycle a block south to the old Crain Avenue Bridge that we cross over to the Portage Bike and Hike. Our short level 8 mile ride takes us to Towner’s Woods County Park where we turn and return to Kent.
On our return, we enjoy Riverside Wine’s beautiful deck overlooking the Cuyahoga River. It's a very causal place with reasonable prices. You can taste a flight of wine for around $10. There are many cheese, fruit, cracker and snack plates you can purchase for around $10 - $15. A large variety of beer and wine is available.
Out and back rides are designed with the intermediate and advanced cyclist in mind. These rides cycle out of a trailhead to a set destination, typically 8-10 miles away. After a break, the riders cycle back to the departure trailhead.
Tonight’s ride travels at 10 mph. The ride is rated for casual cyclists who enjoy cycling 8-10 mph on mostly flat trails. The trail is packed limestone and relatively flat with minimal elevation changes. The ride should be a comfortable ride for both the beginner and experienced cyclist.
This ride is on the calendar of the Spin-off Cyclists . We encourage you to join us on this and other rides. We are a group of cyclists of all ages and abilities who cycle the trails of Northeast Ohio and surrounding areas for fun, health and friendship.
