Night Ride on the Towpath Trail

When: Sat., April 23 2011

In yet another sure sign of spring, this evening marks the resumption of Century Cycles' popular night rides on the Towpath Trail. Led and supported by bike-store staffers, the family-friendly outings are casual, go-at-your-own-pace affairs that cover between 12 and 15 miles on the crushed-limestone trail. The rides were launched in 1994 as staff rides, but now regularly attract more than 100 bicyclists of all ages and abilities. To join them, just bring your bike, a headlight, and a helmet to the Century Cycles parking lot at 1621 Main St. in Peninsula. (Kids under 16 should also bring an adult.) The ride begins at 8 p.m. and is free. Afterward, tradition calls for riders to gather at the nearby Winking Lizard Tavern to swap stories and recount past adventures. For more information on what to expect, go to or call 330-657-2209. — Cicora
