9th Annual Little Cities Tour de Forest Benefit Bicycle Ride is Saturday, May 3
Join Us for the 9th Annual Little Cities Tour de Forest Benefit Bicycle Ride on Saturday morning, May 3 beginning and ending on Nelsonville’s Historic Public Square. Various routes take riders through the forested hills of southeastern Ohio on both level and challenging courses. This a non-competitive ride that raises funds for the Little Cities of Black Diamonds Council which is committed to gathering, protecting and sharing the heritage, cultural and environmental assets of this boom-to-bust coal mining region that is now home to the Wayne National Forest and theLittle Cities of the Forest Collaborative which promotes environmental restoration, education and recreation in the same region.
We added longer routes last year with success including a 63-mile route Metric Century route and a 100-mile Century route. We also saw growth in participation from families and leisure riders who enjoyed short rides locally on the Hock Hocking Adena Bike Path.
Downloadable registration forms and on-line credit card registration will be available soon. Please check back. Please note that helmets are required on this ride.
We are pleased to welcome Athens Bicycle Shop as a corporate sponsor of this year’s ride! We thank Bob Eichenberg, Sam Miller, John Winnenberg and Jerry Iles for serving on the ride’s organizing committee.
