An annual event sponsored by the Friends, this bike ride follows a scenic route through the rolling hills of eastern Erie County. The trip starts at McBride Arboretum, BGSU Firelands Campus, and follows paved country roads through farmland, prairies, woods, and the Village of Berlin Heights, depending on which length of ride you choose. There is a rest stop at Hoffman Forest MetroPark where snacks are available. The PEP ride ends back at the McBride Arboretum with friends and lunch!
The PEP ride has been postponed for the year 2013. Please check back throughout the year for updates regarding the 2014 PEP ride.
Every year Bicycle Bill's of Vermilion donates a bike to the Friends for a bike raffle!
