2017 Bike for the Bridge
Bike for the Bridge is back for a fourth year on May 21 with a new route from Lehighton to Northampton. Cyclists will choose from two distance options; 21 or 29 miles. Proceeds from the event will help fund the construction on the Carbon County Pedestrian Bridge, and completion of the D&L Trail in the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor.
There are many projects at different stages that are currently underway along the trail and Bike for the Bridge participants will be helping to defray these costs. They can bring their own bike or rent one from Pocono Biking.
Cyclists will check in and start from Northampton Canal Park, be shuttled north to Lehighton and either bike north on the D&L Trail - Weissport Spur for an additional eight miles or immediately head south from Lehighton and ride the D&L Trail back to Northampton.
Cost is $39 before May 11, $44 after; includes shuttle ride, gift and post-ride celebration with raffle prizes in Northampton. Bike rental is $10. To register, call Pocono Biking at 1-800-944-8392.
