CycleNuts Selfie Cycling Tours

CycleNuts Selfie Tours tie together fun, interesting, scenic, historic, tasty, and refreshing points of interest along a bikeway focused tour route and you ride at your pace and your pleasure. You are the tour boss.

Community bikeway cycle tours do not get any better than this. Beautiful neighborhoods, scenic parks, nicely designed bikeways, historical places, and a great spot along the way for a selfie picture atop Hoover Dam!

There are a lot of great reasons to visit Westerville, Ohio. Add this CycleNuts smart-guided cycling tour to your agenda - or make this tour your agenda. Either way, this bikeway route will get your wheels on the renowned cycling infrastructure of this northeast Columbus suburb. Never see the same thing twice on this Long One-way Loop (LOL) selfie tour - except for Hoover Dam which is worth seeing twice. Feeling adventurous? Easily add miles to the route by detouring on any number of bikeway spurs throughout Westerville.

This LOL tour starts where it ends at a disc golf park (bring a disc (frisbee) if that's your thing). Westerville put an extensive effort into creating a city wide bikeway system. Through tunnels, on well marked bike lanes and dedicated trails, across a dam, through numerous parks, and all set in a bicycle friendly community this LOL cycling tour will take you along the picturesque Hoover Reservoir and winding riverside trails, across fields and manicured parks, and through beautifully landscaped neighborhoods. This tour packs in a lot in a little package!

The 21 mile smart-guided bicycle tour route is 92% bikeway and comes with CycleNuts' 50% downhill guarantee. Most of the route is dedicated bike lanes and paved trails that follow the lay of the land. With the exception of some tunnel ramps and bridges and a couple of short stretches of trail your bike's gears will see very little use. All bikes are appropriate for this smart-guided tour. Bring yours or rent one before the starting spot (see confirmation information for listings). Sweating is optional. The route is shaded about 40 % of the way. You set your own pace, starting time and touring agenda with CycleNuts' expert smart-guided cycle tour pattern.

Points of interest: Westerville, Hoover Dam and Reservoir Park, Inniswood Metro Gardens, Everal Barn & Homestead, First Responders Park, and a CycleNuts tested and approved optional tasty spot, Winking Lizard Tavern. Segments of nine (...yes... 9) bikeways on route: Ohio-to-Erie Trail, Westerville Bikeway, Big Walnut Trail, Big Walnut Creek Trail, Towers Trail, Chipmunk Chatter Trail, Polaris Trail, Alum Creek Trail, and County Line Shrock Trail.
