Stow Bike for the Woods is a family-friendly bike ride on the roads of Stow and surrounding towns, in lengths ranging from 5 to 64 miles. Most rides are marked on the road and all include cue sheets. The shorter rides tend to be easier and the longer ones more challenging. Proceeds go to the Stow Conservation Trust which helps preserve open space in this beautiful town.
Event starts at 9am, with registration opening at 8:30am. Fees are $20 per adult and $15 per child age 12 and under, maximum $50 per family. (On the day of the ride, fees are $25 per adult, $15 per child, with a maximum of $55 per family.)
We'll follow pandemic rules at the time for these kinds of events. Please bring a mask to wear at the start and maintain 6-foot distancing.
