 Ride so Others May Ride!

 Memorial Day Weekend, May 26th through May 29th

 

The Main Event, Sunday May 28th

The Lehigh Wheelmen Association is honored to present our new Velo-Valley Vistas Charity Ride on May 28, 2017.  The course will begin at the world-class Valley Preferred Cycling Center (aka T-Town) Velodrome and follow our favorite roads north and west into the Hawk Valley.  You will travel on what have been described as the most scenic, low-traffic cycling roads east of the Mississippi!  The focus will be a Spring Metric 62 mile ride, but we offer a variety of mileage options from 40 to 104 miles. For the ultimate challenge, conquer the climb up Hawk Mountain and receive a prize along with bragging rights.  Themed rest stops will include Wanamakers General Store (LWAs perennial favorite rest stop) with homemade baked goods, energy drinks and other goodies to fuel your ride.  To top it all off, the ride culminates with a lap on the Velodrome track!

 

A Destination Weekend Event

We encourage you to add to your Lehigh Valley experience and make this a destination weekend.  We’ve partnered with the Velodrome to offer VVV participants a Try the Track class complete with track bikes and professional instruction on Saturday May 27th from 2:00 to 4:00 pm.  In addition, we’ll offer GPS routes of some of our favorite Lehigh Valley Themed rides for Friday the 26th, Saturday the 27th and Memorial Day Monday the 29th.  Visit Discover Lehigh Valley for some great suggestions of things to do and see.
