The Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L) will host the fourth annual Bike for the Bridge fundraiser on Sunday May 21, 2017. This charity bike ride raises funds for projects that eliminate trail obstructions on the D&L Trail.
This year’s event features a new route that is not part of regular commercially available tours. Guests and their bikes will be shuttled from Canal Park in Northampton to the Lehighton Trailhead by Pocono Biking. Guests then have the option of biking back 21 miles to Canal Park, or adding an additional 8 miles by following the towpath trail through Weissport for a total of 29 miles. Along the way guests will enjoy scenic views of the Lehigh River and Lehigh Canal, the Kittatinny Ridge (aka the Blue Mountain), the Appalachian Trail and Lehigh Gap on a forested flat gravel path.
