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 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 15.

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.

Not only do we have paved bike trails in our area, but we have mountain bike, hiking, water, geocaching, equestrian, and cross country skiing trails, too! We encourage you to experience the outdoor recreation in our area during this year’s Bike ‘n Brew, no matter what form of trail you choose.

Justus Park Vendors

Vendors will be set up in the park with information on outdoor related businesses and activities in the area. Stop by to grab a trail map and learn about some of the many ways to enjoy the outdoors in the area.

Food vendors will be set up in the park all day and restrooms are available.

Shuttle Service

A free shuttle is available from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m to transport you to various points on our miles of paved trails. If you will be using the shuttle, please fill out our short form here.

Bike Rental & Maintenance

Outdoor Allegheny River Services (OARS) will be set up in Justus Park if you need your bike fixed. They will also bring bikes to rent, but you must notify us ahead of time. If you’d like to rent a bike, please contact Ashley at the Venango Chamber at acowles@venangochamber.org or (814) 676-8521.

Customized & Strava Routes

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.

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!
