Bike the Boro begins with three bike rides on the streets of Springboro. All three rides start and end at North Park. The 2-mile ride is perfect for young children and stays close to the neighborhood near North Park. The 10- and 16-mile rides offer a hilly challenge on City streets. The 16-mile ride passes through 75 percent of the City’s neighborhoods. The 10- and 16-mile rides include rest stops and support and follow riders. Maps of all three routes will be available closer to the event.
