Overnight Historic Guided Bicycle Tour
July 10 @ 11:30 am - July 11 @ 11:30 pm$80
Overnight Historic Guided Bicycle Tour participants will enjoy two days and one night immersed in the natural beauty of Zaleski State Forest while listening to the stories of local historians at points of interest along the way. A shuttle will be available to carry personal camp gear to our campsite with potable water. Local refreshments and dinner will be provided.
The tour will be a non-competitive event allowing for ample time to take in the Appalachian scenery and to 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 six interpretive stops at historic points of interest with local refreshment at mid-point. A locally sourced dinner will be provided at our campsite. 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.
