The 9th Annual Community Ties Ride promises to build on the break-out success of the 2010 ride, with well-marked routes through scenic Delaware County, multiple snack stops featuring homemade cookies, and another delicious and healthful, locally grown and made lunch provided by Graumlich Family Farm under a large outdoor tent.
More than 250 riders participated in the 2010 ride, making it the largest turnout ever with all proceeds going to support multi-purpose trail development in Delaware County connecting with the statewide Ohio to Erie Trail.
The ride features options of 31, 62 and 100 miles as well as an 8-mile Family Ride, and includes scenic areas, rare bird habitats, parks, new sections of the Ohio to Erie Trail, well-marked route maps and SAG vehicle. Registration is from 7 - 9 a.m.
The ride will start/end at Northside Community Church, northeast corner of S.R., 3 and Freeman Road in Westerville, site of the homemade lunch.
Pre-registration cost is $20 per rider, or $20 per family participating in the Family Ride. Day-of-ride registration is $25.
Registration includes a one-year membership to the Delaware County Friends of the Trail.
