Tame the hills and see Harper's Ferry as never before! We meet at our bike shop and have an intro to electric bikes. You will be fitted with helmets and we'll go over safety tips. I will give you a map and bottled water. We begin with a ride on a fairly flat road to "The Overlook" where you might want to take photos. Once you are comfortable with the bike we will head downtown. We will turn right onto Church Street and park to walk up to Jefferson Rock—another photo opportunity. We will begin winding our way down into "Lower Town". I will show you a few places to park your bike when you come back to tour the park. We will travel a mile or so on a secret road flanking the river. We will ride to the "Point" where the 2 rivers meet. Then we are off to travel Shenandoah Street where we will stop at the waterfalls usually seen only by hikers or from a bus window! Finally we will head up to Boliver Heights Scenic Overlook. Here I will discuss other points of interest and send you on your way to enjoy the rest of your morning on your bike and enjoy lunch at one of our participating restaurants. You will return your bike to our shop by 1pm.
Electric bikes are awesome! And I — a 56 yr old woman — never dreamed I would be so excited to ride bikes again! With my love of Harper's Ferry and my experience from hosting guests at our airbnb here, I want to show you all the sites our beautiful town has to offer..... from the seat of our comfy bikes!
