Description: Ride the bike path and roads into West County and Wildwood.    Mileage options of 19, 28 and 37+ miles.  Option for additional miles and hills by going into St. Albans.  Ride to Hardt and back is mostly flat.   Ride to Hencken and back is rolling hills.  More sizeable hills to St. Albans.  If riders choose to ride up Hardt to Wild Horse Creek to 100, be advised that it has more extreme hills and puts you on 100 for a longer period.

Hazards: 100 is a busy highway.  Use caution and always use the shoulder.  When crossing 100 consider walking across if there is traffic.  Don’t cross just because the person in front of you is crossing.  Vehicles do not have time to slow down.
