Moraine Fondo+ MEDIO 12.5/Moderate/43
Welcome to the Moraine Fondo+ MEDIO
A FREE EVENT FOR ALL PBC MEMBERS TO ENJOY!
About the Moraine Fondo+
Our Moraine Fondo+ offers riders 4 options or more. The PLUS part gives the riders the choice to add on miles and visit McConnells Mill and/or enjoy the scenic paved trail that travels along Lake Arthur. The GRAN, MEDIO and BAMBINO routes will have ride leaders for each group. The PISTA route will not have a ride leader since it is on a paved trail and is an out-and-back route.
Participants are encouraged to bring a lawn chair and a picnic lunch in their cooler so they can eat lunch following their rides and spent time off the bike with other members of the club. There are restrooms available for changing clothes and freshening up.
About the MEDIO Route
The MEDIO route offers riders a more challenging route of 43 miles as compared to the BAMBINO route and will have a rest stop at the Grove City Outlets before detouring to see the Hunter's Run Waterfalls (aka Springfield Falls). If you are feeling extra good at the end of this route, feel free to continue on to McConnells Mill with the GRAN route riders before the GRAN riders continue onward to McConnells Mill.
Riders also have to option to ride the PISTA route which is on the paved bike trail and offers scenic views along Lake Arthur.
