The 12th Annual Little Cities Tour de Forest Benefit Bicycle Ride is set for Saturday morning, April 29, 2017 beginning and ending at Hocking College Student Center in Nelsonville. Various routes take riders through the forested hills of southeastern Ohio on both level and challenging courses. A new Eclipse Company Town Route and gravel route join established road routes that take you to architecturally significant remnant coal mining towns surrounded by the Wayne Forest! A hearty complimentary lunch will be served upon return at the Student Center between 11:30am and 3pm. This is a non-competitive ride that raises funds for the Little Cities of Black Diamonds Council which is committed to gathering, protecting and sharing the heritage, cultural and environmental assets of this boom-to-bust coal mining region that is now home to the Wayne National Forest.
Registration for this year’s ride is $30 for adults and $20 for youth (6-17 years). Registration for groups/teams of 5 or more riders will be $25/rider and $15/rider for youth. For more information and route details visit www.tourdeforest.wordpress.com.
