Join us as we pay tribute to this great country for the 22nd Annual Cruisin' in the Country Century Bike Ride!

 

Cruisin’  is a family friendly bicycle ride, dedicated to the safety of our cyclists.  It is not a race. Five different ride options will be offered to ensure there’s a ride suited for each skill level.  Whatever route you choose, you will travel over roads with minimal traffic.  While riding, you will benefit from SAG vehicles patrolling the routes, as well as our friendly, themed rest stops, located every 10 to 12 miles along the routes.  Each rest stop will be stocked with water, Power Ade, fruit, various snacks, and special home-made mouth watering treats.  In addition, port-a-potties and/or rest rooms will be available at each stop.
