8am: 70 mile Bike Ride
Description of the course: This route will wind you through many beautiful country roads with steep challenging climbs and gorgeous views of Ohio Amish country. The total elevation gain is over 5000 feet with multiple grades of 10 to 15%. This ride is recommended for experienced, fit riders who are up for a challenge. There are three rest stops along the way with hydration, fuel and bathrooms staffed with friendly volunteers. Come prepared for small sections of gravel and/or chip and seal and some cracked pavement as roads down here see a lot of different traffic, from buggies to tractors to milk trucks. You will need to be on the lookout for all of the above, but you will be rewarded with a delicious lunch and great memories after the ride.
