Perhaps the prettiest place to find yourself in all of Erie is to find yourself on the Presque Isle peninsula during a summer sunrise. They are, in a word, spectacular. So spectacular that Lake Erie Cyclefest decided to add a sunrise tour of Presque Isle State Park. And who better to guide the tour than Good Morning Erie’s Traci Teudhope.
Whether you are visiting Erie from a long distance or you’ve lived here all your life, you will love this free, lively, and creative slow-ride-tour of Lake Erie Cyclefest’s host city. The 10-mile ride will roll out of the northeast corner of Perry Square and visit many of Erie’s cultural and historical sites. All riders stay together and travel at about 6 miles per hour. The ride will conclude with an Erie Downtown Partnership block party featuring live music and a beer sampling from Five & 20 Spirits & Brewing.
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.
This is Erie County’s premier bicycle tour with a long-standing tradition of spectacular routes, safety support, water stops and after ride fun. This non-competitive event provides several scenic ride routes of varying distances. West Erie County is a treat to the senses with its rolling farm land, narrow lanes, and old growth forest. Choose a 12, 25, 50 or a 100 mile loop of Erie County. All routes are monitored by EmergyCare’s trained medical professionals and water/snack stations are strategically placed to make sure riders can rest and refuel. This year Tour de West County will begin at Lake Erie Community Park, the park has plenty of amenities to keep the whole family entertained, whether they are riding or not! Best of all is watching the Bald Eagles fish for breakfast. Tour de West County will end with a picnic and all riders will be given tokens to exchange for a beer sampling from Five & 20 Spirits & Brewing at The HUB.
