Peninsula - Valley Loop

18 miles

Peninsula - Valley Loop MapThe Valley Loop is a very basic route suitable for all skill levels of those comfortable riding on public roads. It is relatively flat, and about 18 miles total. It can be ridden in under an hour at a brisk pace.

From our store in Peninsula, you basically just follow Akron-Peninsula Rd south. As you get into the outskirts of the city of Akron, you turn back north on Merriman Rd, which becomes Riverview Rd, leading you right back to Peninsula. For most of Akron-Peninsula Rd and Riverview Rd, there is a wide shoulder that can serve as an unofficial bike lane.

You can check out the full details of the Valley Loop on Century Cycles' Garmin Connect profile and download the route to your own Garmin device. Non-Garmin users can see the route on
