The Ohio Valley Trail Partners present the 14th Annual tour of the Wheeling Heritage Trail on Sunday, May 24 at Heritage Port in Wheeling—1201 Water Street, Wheeling, WV 26003.

The 100km (62 miles) ride will leave the trail for a hilly loop through Bethany and West Liberty with a stop at Bethany College. It is a challenging ride with great SAG support.
Lunch will be served between 11:30 am and 2 pm at Heritage Port and there will be entertainment from 1 – 6 pm. Snack/water stops will keep riders hydrated: 3 on the 100km ride and 2 on the 30-mile ride.
Same-day registrations are welcome but it helps us if you register early. Every participant is required to wear a helmet. Entrants under 18 must be accompanied by a registered adult. We ride rain or shine!
