Sunday Morning Tow Path Ride (30 miles)

Hello!

This is a Sunday morning ride along the Metropark's Ohio & Erie Canel Towpath; starting at the Canal Visitor Center in Valley View and heading south.   We will stop at Szalay's Sweet Corn Farm to take a lunch break (... and eat corn!) and then head back. 

We can meet-up at around 10-ish and hit the trail by 10:30am.  This is an approximately 30 mile ride round-trip.  If we pace ourselves at around 13 mph on the path, then we should be done in about 3 hours with the breaks and lunch.  We can make this a longer trip if the group wants!

I recommend helmets; however this is not a sponsered event and in the end it is your choice.

Bring plenty of water and enthusiasm!  This is nice section of the Towpath with plenty of scenery and a nice bike path to get in some good exercise on a Sunday morning.

Thanks and looking forward to ride with y'all!

      Hi Cynthia... this is packed crushed asphalt. Not as friendly to road bikes. Hybrids are better.
