Main Event Details:

The Lehigh Wheelmen Association is honored to present our third annual Velo-Valley Vistas Charity Ride on May 26, 2019.  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 a family-friendly flat 20 to a challenging 104 miles.  For the ultimate challenge, conquer the optional 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 followed by a light lunch!
