Lake Erie Cyclefest Jelly Jar Ride @ Shade's Beach

Riders have the choice of a 25 or 50-mile non-competitive ride. Each tour will take you through the county’s beautiful vineyards, fruit farm region and lakeshore. The Lake Erie Grape growing region is the largest grape growing region in the world, and in August smells simply grape-er-rific! The fruity aromas will remind riders of those long ago “jelly jar” days when people put up their own preserves. The ride includes optional stops at Mazza Vineyards and Kraza’s Kove (homemade ice cream in Findley Lake, NY) and will conclude with a picnic with wood-fired pizza from Brooklyn Pizza and a beer sampling from Five & 20 Spirits & Brewing. Proceeds from the ride benefit the Y’s Food + Fun bus, a free mobile meals site for kids in need. Route details coming soon.
