Oil Heritage Festival Bike ‘n Brew – Outdoor Activities


Outdoor Page HeaderSmall

The 2017 Bike ‘n Brew includes FREE outdoor activities in and around Oil City throughout the day!

The Venango Region is fortunate to offer some of the best bicycling you’ll ever find. For those partial to a paved trail, you’ll have access to more than 70 miles of trail, from one end of Venango County to the other, along creeks and rivers, through tunnels and our picturesque communities or Titusville, Oil City, Franklin, and Emlenton. For the more adventurous, our area offers a variety of mountain bike trails.

We will have stations in Justus Park, located in downtown Oil City, to educate riders in basics such as riding etiquette and bike maintenance, hold a bicycle parts swap meet, and offer a shuttle service to various points on our many miles of paved trails.

Depending on your needs, we can offer you or your group a customized route, including a bike trail, road, or off-road ride. We have put together 10 routes on Strava (an online app) and you can find the routes here.

If you give us an idea of what you would like, we can set you up with routes with water breaks and other comforts, or anything else you would like or need. To make your day more comfortable, our local YMCA can offer showers for a small donation. If you would need anything else, we can assist you or find out who can.

All of these great biking opportunities are available year round, but we invite community members and friends to join us for one great day of outdoor recreation!

A shuttle is available from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to transport bicyclists to and from various parts of the trail. If you will be using the shuttle, please fill out our short form here.

For questions or for a customized day, please contact our Bike ‘n Brew Biking Chairperson Kevin Culbertson at (814) 758-4525 or cubschoice@gmail.com.

We invite outdoor vendors to join us for this event, whether you wish to exhibit bicycling products, provide information about your outdoor services, or display anything related to the outdoors in the Venango Area!
