A Ride Through Time Guided Bike Tour

Join us for a non competitive ride through the beautiful back roads in Athens County. We will tour 17.5 miles of historic and natural sites en route with a local historian, Ingrid Buckley. Riding with Ingrid you will be able to learn about the region's rich history from a local perspective. Ingrid grew up in the hills of Appalachia and is a graduate from the college of Wooster where she studied History. Local refreshments will be provided at points of interest along the way, and opportunities to patronize local eateries and shops will be available. Stops at locations like Lock #19 of the Hocking Canal System will take you back in time as Ingrid paints a picture of what life used to be when the canal was active and how it has shaped our region. The route will twist through the hills and back roads of the county, participants should anticipate 1,269 feet elevation gain with at 16.9% max grade and some gravel roads. This is a non-supported tour, meaning participants should come prepared with personal bike repair kits and water, helmets are required. Register now, limited space available
