BikeSpark 2017

BikeSpark begins from and revolves around the Provenzale ride hub at Brandywine Ski Resort. With three routes to choose from, you and your friends will find one that offers the distance and challenge appropriate for your experience and skill, no matter your age. The 30 & 65 mile Sportlegs and Cleveland Clinic Sports Health routes feature full rider support including rest stops with snacks and drinks, and the beauty of the roads and paved trails in the scenic Cuyahoga Valley National Park and Cleveland & Summit Metroparks. Our 15 mile “Honey Hut Scoop Loop” route is perfect for casual riders and families looking for a tasty mid-ride treat along the scenic and flat Towpath trail.

Riding will spark your appetite for camaraderie and food—and BikeSpark delivers! Enjoy your ride, then join other riders, volunteers and bicycling proponents in the Provenzale ride hub to relax and celebrate with a post-ride lunch featuring Fresh Fork Market, and beverage choices from Sibling Revelry Brewing. Lunch is included for 65 and 30 mile riders, and can be purchased during registration for 15 mile riders at an additional fee. Beverages not included.
