The 32nd Annual Dry Run, which is to be held on Sunday, September 8, 2013, 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 as early as 7 a.m. depending upon the route you choose. You will have a choice of four fully supported routes, which include 30, 50, 70, and 100 miles. All routes are over hard surface roads and include a combination of small-town streets and rural county roads. All routes contain some hills with the 100 mile route being 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.
