Night Ride on the Towpath Trail benefits the Conservancy for CVNP - August 27, 2016

Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park TRAILS FOREVER
RE-SCHEDULED from when the August 13 event was rained out! Join us for our next Night Ride on the Towpath Trail on Saturday, August 27, and help support our national park!

The ride is FREE as usual, but anyone who makes a donation (minimum $1) to the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park will be eligible to win a NiteRider Lumina 550 rechargeable bicycle headlight!

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 6:30 and 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 headlight. The drawing will take place at 7:50pm. The winner 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:
