Historic Bike Tour

June 25 @ 9:00 am - June 26 @ 11:00 am

$80
farm

The Historic Guided Bicycle Tour participants will enjoy a two day bike tour along the Moonville bike trail and surrounding gravel roads while listening to the stories of local historians at points of interest along the way.

The tour will be a non competitive event allowing for ample time to take in the Appalachian scenery and learn more about the rich history. This route will twist through the hills and back roads of the forest. On day one we will cycle 23 miles with 1,229 feet of elevation gain and a max grade of 8.8%. Throughout the day we will take multiple interpretive stops at historic points of interest with local refreshment at mid point. A locally sourced dinner will be provided and participants are encouraged to camp at one of the beautiful campsite within the Zaleski State Forest. Day two will be a 7.4 mile ride back to the Waterloo Fire Department parking lot. Participants should anticipate gravel roads and some mild off roading. This is a non-supported tour, meaning participants should come prepared with personal camping gear, bike repair kits and water, helmets are required.

Join us for a rich experience of connecting to Southeast Ohio by cycling through the Appalachian hills, enjoying local foods, and immersing yourself in the history of the region.
