Great ride. The volunteers leading and riding sweep were informative about the area and also shared with us some information of other interesting bikes trails in other states. We would participate in this ride again especially if it covers the entire trail.

This was a beautiful and rewarding bike trip. Riding 100 plus miles on a trail without cars, the sound of cars, was fantastic. The views were beautiful. Much thanks goes to the ride leaders and the trip coordinator who allowed me to have 3 days of great bike rides.

This was a great program for bikers of varying levels. I was a bit hesitant at first and went along to please my husband who is a stronger biker. The program was so well organized and the leaders and "sweeps" so helpful that my confidence level was boosted and I did quite well, even making the 38 miles on the last day that I wasn't so sure I could do. The first day is a slight uphill for 9 miles, but nothing you can't make going at a moderate speed--I never had to downshift from my third to second gear. And the beauty of the water and flowers--wonderful. Finally, the trail is extremely well maintained and there are few bikers during the week. Coming from an urban area where you have to watch out for racing bikers, hikers, baby strollers, and runners, all using the same trail, this trip was an absolute delight. The oldest in our group was 83 and he regularly outpaced me. We were also very lucky in the weather--only on the third day did it get hot and humid, which put a dent in our speed and enjoyment.
