Our friends at the Portage Cyclery are hosting the "Tour De Portage" Road Bike Ride Saturday, May 19th.
Pick your distance to tour the beautiful landscapes of Portage County--we have scouted 50-mile, 30-mile and 20-mile routes. Those riding the 50 & 30 mile distances will leave at 10 AM. Those riding 20 miles depart at 12 Noon. All rides depart from the Portage Cyclery,
2645 St Rt 59 Ravenna.
This is a road ride through some of the Portage County scenic areas. A certified bicycle helmet and accessories are required to join the rides.
The Portage Cyclery is providing live musical entertainment and food from 12:30 to 3:30. This is open to the general public. The band will be The Scuttlebums which plays folk/rock. Food will be provided in exchange for a donation to the Portage Park District. All funds received will go to benefit the continuing maintenance of Portage County Parks and Trails.
There is no fee to participate and ride in the "Tour De Portage." All participants in the "Tour De Portage" will receive a nice vinyl back bag with several items inside as a gift from The Portage Cyclery, TransPORTAGE and The Portage Parks District.
