35th Annual DRY RUN BICYCLE TOUR
SEPTEMBER 11, 2016
RAIN OR SHINE
The 35th Annual Dry Run, which is to be held on September 11, 2016, is a beautiful bicycle tour that is not a race or contest of speed. It is a self-paced ride through scenic central Ohio. The ride will depart from Westerville Central High School, and you will have a choice of four routes: 34, 54, 70 and 100 miles. All routes are over hard-surface roads and include a combination of city streets and rural county roads. All routes contain some hills, with the 100-mile route the most challenging.
The Dry Run is a full-service ride with great food, interesting routes and exceptional support. The Dry Run will go on rain or shine. Helmets are required, and rear view mirrors are encouraged. All those under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
