Enjoy a bike ride featuring new sections of the Towpath Trail, followed by an Oktoberfest fun for all ages! The event begins at 4:00pm with a bike ride starting at Canal Lands Park, 8645 Dover-Zoar Road in Zoar. Once riders leave from Canal Lands Trailhead they can either travel south to State Route 800, which is 6 miles round trip, or they can head north to Fort Laurens, which is also 6 miles round trip. Riders are welcome to complete either a 6 mile bike ride, the full 12 miles, or anywhere in between.
