Celebrate Aviation History at the 5th Annual Greene Trails Cycling Classic July 17-20, 2008

The Greene Trails Cycling Classic is a fun, family-oriented getaway that is easy on your wallet and friendly to the environment and your health! It is a multi-day event centered in Greene County, Ohio, and is designed to showcase the nationally recognized rail-to-trail system that exists there – and beyond, as well as the communities along the trails. All rides begin and end at the GTCC campground located at the Fairgrounds Recreation Center beside the Greene County Fairgrounds. Each day features and utilizes a different section of the trail with route(s) supported for rider convenience and safety. Routes include on-trail, out-and-back trips, as well as extended rides on rural roads for designated days. The broad network of trails provides an exceptional cycling experience for those families and individuals who want to take part in a bicycle or skating tour, but prefer the safety and comfort of staying on the trails. Alternate routes offer a choice for the more adventurous.

This year, participants will have the opportunity to visit some of Wilbur and Orville Wright’s old stomping grounds near Dayton, Ohio, including the Wright Brothers Memorial and Huffman Prairie Flying Field, the Wright-Dunbar Interpretive Center & Aviation Trail Visitor Center, Inc., the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force, and other local sites of interest. Nowhere else in the country will you be able to experience this type of adventure with your friends and family.
