Night Ride on the Towpath Trail to benefit the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park

Conservancy for CVNP Trails Forever

Join us for our next Night Ride on the Towpath Trail and help support our national park!

When: Saturday, August 26, 2017, 7:00pm
Where: Century Cycles, 1621 Main Street, Peninsula, OH 44264

The ride is FREE as usual, but anyone who joins or makes a donation (minimum $1) to the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park will be eligible to win one of several great prizes, including a high-end headlight, bike parts, and more!

The Conservancy for CVNP, through the TRAILS FOREVER Fund, helps maintain the over 100 miles of hiking, biking, and horseback trails in the park, including the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail and the East Rim Mountain Bike Trail.

We recommend that you arrive in Peninsula between around 7:00pm so that you have plenty of time to find parking, get yourself and your bicycle ready, sign in, and get in on the drawing for the prizes. The drawings will take place at 7:45pm. The winners MUST be present. We start riding at 8:00pm sharp. The drawing and the start of the ride takes place in the parking lot of our store at 1621 Main Street in Peninsula.

The ride is about 14 miles long. You must have your own bicycle, helmet, and headlight. For more information, including directions, parking information, preparation and safety tips, and photos from past rides, go to:
