A message was sent to our Facebook page to promote the Pedal and Whine Bike Tour in Jackson County this August. I posted the event on the GWCC Facebook page, but for those who do not use Facebook, information about the event is, as follows:
The Pedal & Whine Bike Tour is Back!! Join us for the 8th Annual Pedal & Whine Bike Tour, which will be held on Saturday, August 7th, at Sandhill Crane Vineyards in Jackson County.
Sponsored by the Cascades Cycling Club, this very popular, fully supported ride has grown significantly over the last seven years. Enjoy bicycling along the scenic, lightly travelled roads of eastern Jackson county and the Waterloo Recreation area. Routes include distances of 11, 16, 29, 31, 53 and 68 miles. These six routes allow riders to ride as little or as much they like. This year riders also have the option of riding a portion of each of these routes on the recently opened segment of the Mike Levine Lakelands Trail. For cyclists who wish to ride mainly on the Mike Levine Lakelands trail, a new route has been added that puts riders on the trail in less than 5 miles. Riders can continue to Stockbridge and return making this a 29 mile route, or turn around sooner for a shorter ride. All routes are fully supported by roving "SAG" vehicles on the road and “SAG” cyclists on the trail routes, so participants can ride worry free.
Register by August 1st to take advantage of special pricing of $30 individual/$65 family. With the 250 rider limit, early registration is highly recommended to ensure your place in this event.
Registration is now open on Active. To register click this link
