It’s Bike Month! Join a group bike ride on several trails in St. Clair County, visiting and learning about some beautiful parks in the process. Participants should bring your own bicycles, helmets, and water. You can join the ride from any of the designated spots (listed below) to get a longer or shorter ride. All ages welcome (minors should be accompanied by an adult). We recommended that younger riders participate in the shorter ride distance.

For the longest ride (round-trip 6.5 miles), begin at the Swansea MetroBikeLink Trailhead, across Boul Ave. from Swansea Village Hall. We’ll ride from the trailhead to Centennial Park via the Richland Creek Bikeway.

For the shorter ride (round-trip 3.25 miles), join the group at Centennial Park in Swansea. We’ll stop here and discuss the park and Richland Creek watershed. Then we’ll head north to Clinton Hills Conservation Park and tour the Exploration Garden.

From there we’ll head back to Centennial Park and then to the Swansea MetroBikeLink Trailhead to complete the tour.

The route will be on trails with potential street crossings.
