Riding a Bicycle in Erie County, Pennsylvania



Erie County, Pennsylvania is a fantastic place for cycling enthusiasts, and Presque Isle is a particularly popular destination.

On Thursday evening and Sunday Afternoons, you can join in on the fun by participating in the slow rolls in the Erie City down town Area. On Thursdays evenings the Slow roll meets at 6:00p.m at Perry Square. The Sunday Slow roll meet at Frontier Park at 12:00 noon.

These rides offer a leisurely pace, allowing you to take in the sights and sounds of the City of Erie as you pedal along. You’ll have the opportunity to ride on country roads, gravel roads, and even the Bayfront Bike Way bike path.

If you’re looking for a more structured ride, you can join a diverse group of cycling enthusiasts for a group ride on Wednesday nights from April to October. These rides are held in Edinboro, Pennsylvania and depart from the 814 Outdoor Sports parking lot at 6pm sharp. The group is divided into four groups, A, B, C, and D, to accommodate riders of all skill levels.

Dating back to the days of countryside cycling, these group rides are a great way to connect with other cycling enthusiasts and explore the beautiful landscapes of Erie County. So don your helmet, hop on your bike, and join in on the fun!
