2019 HERITAGE EXPLORER BIKE TOUR: Come Along for the Ride

The Heritage Explorer Bike Tour is back! We hope you’ll come along for the ride!

After a short hiatus, the Heritage Explorer Bike Tour will return in 2019. This time, we’ll be showcasing the newest section of the Lackawanna River Heritage Trail – from Carbondale through Fell Township.

The Heritage Explorer Bike Tour has become an annual tradition to promote the development of the Lackawanna River Heritage Trail. This year’s event is made extra special, as it will proudly bring our community together along our region’s newest outdoor asset. Cyclists will embark on a 20-mile stretch of a newly-debuted scenic path linking the Lackawanna River Heritage Trail to the D&H Rail Trail.

The event is a fun, family-friendly and noncompetitive event. Riders of all ages and abilities will have the chance to ride along the Heritage Trail from Carbondale, past the Stillwater Dam in Uniondale, and to Ararat Township. The 2019 Heritage Explorer Bike Tour will take place on Sunday, September 29, 2019. Cyclists will begin and end at the YMCA Community Park in Carbondale (behind the Ben Mar restaurant), coinciding with Greater Carbondale YMCA’s Fall Festival.

Riders will check-in to receive their t-shirts, information packets and sponsored giveaways. After enjoying a complimentary breakfast, they’ll choose their route length and hit the new trail. Upon returning to the park grounds, participants can enjoy a catered lunch before checking out community festival. 

From kids on tricycles to longer distance cyclists, hundreds of people will enjoy the returning tradition. All are welcome to continue the fun with activities at the Greater Carbondale YMCA Fall Festival. Scheduled activities include an open swim, fitness class, bouncy house for the kids, health screenings and a cookie walk. This Fall Festival helps to support the great work accomplished everyday by the YMCA.
