BIKE: The 90km (56mi) 1 lap out & back bike course is a VERY challenging loop course featuring nearly 5000’ of climbing on roads within the park and country roads outside the park. This spectacular course features a middle section of nearly 20 miles of flat riding along the Tuscarawas River providing participants with a much needed break, along with breathtaking views of rolling hills and river scenery.
