Bike Routes: The 10 mile bicycle route follows along the Heritage Rail Trail, passing through Homestead Park. The 19 and 33 mile routes are mostly flat jaunts to the scenic Big Darby Creek. The 49 mile route follows flat to gently rolling terrain on lightly traveled township roads, following the Big Darby toward its source. The 67 mile route is for those wanting that metric century! The 81 and 102 mile routes build upon the 67 with additional loops featuring longer grades. Stay tuned for updates to the routes (they will be similar to the Maps of the 2017 Routes, but we will be starting at Hilliard Davidson HS this year), and check the “Map Table” at check-in before you leave for last-minute updates.
