Bike Tour FINAL blue 6.7.11

The Heritage Explorer Bike Tour & Festival won the 2015 Hometown Hero SAGE Award presented by the Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce.

On Sunday, September 25, 2016, cyclists will enjoy the fall foliage at the 7th Annual Heritage Explorer Bike Tour & Festival!

Hosted by the Lackawanna Heritage Valley National and State Heritage Area (LHV) and Heritage Valley Partners, Inc., the event will be held at Blakely Borough Recreational Complex in Peckville, Pa.

The Heritage Explorer Bike Tour offers four, out-and-back routes that extend from Blakely Borough Park north on the Lackawanna River Heritage Trail and in quiet neighborhood streets through 17 municipalities. Each route has Station Stops along the course with complimentary water, snacks and fun activities.

Riders are encouraged to use bikes conducive to the packed gravel surface of the trail. Experienced bike marshals will patrol the course to guide riders and assist with repairs. All street sections and crossings will be marked and staffed. Riders under age 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
