MyEO Countryside Bike Tour
Monday, 9/19, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Monday morning before XCentric starts, enjoy a bike ride and lunch along the scenic Little Miami bike trail, the fourth longest paved trail in the US.
This is a “Choose your own adventure” outing where you can choose to take your time and have a nice leisurely ride, or you can push yourself to go further than anyone else in the group. The path is paved and almost entirely flat, so it is ideal for the occasional cyclist, but enthusiasts love the ability to focus on pedaling without having to worry about vehicle traffic. The shortest distance you will cover is 20 miles, and the longest is entirely up to you.
The event departs the Westin at 9:00am Monday, and returns by 3:00pm that afternoon. Price includes transportation to the trailhead, along with a rental bike and helmet. Lunch is self-pay, but we have coordinated with a restaurant along the trail for a reserved space.
