Rib Tickler Bicycle Ride
On Saturday, August 8th,the Friends of Madison County Parks and Trails in conjunction with the London Rib and Jazz Festival will sponsor a family bicycle tour from London to Brighton. This fun ride will start on 2nd and Oak St. (the municipal parking lot) at 9 a.m. It will follow rural roads through the mostly flat to slightly rolling hills past many farms and scenic countryside. Take your time and enjoy the sites along the way such as the historic Brighton United Methodist Church. The rural community of Brighton, Ohio is a bit more laid back than in England, but enjoy the rest and refreshments when you arrive. The return trip to London will be by a different route to keep your adventure interesting. Your total round trip will be about 35 miles. An interactive map for the Rib Tickler Ride is available courtesy of MapMyRide.com. (Click here for a detail map of downtown London.)
