About a 23 mile bike ride north from Dayton, the city of Troy prides itself on its small town feel. It thrives on unique small businesses and is a close knit community, which makes it a popular place to raise a family. Perhaps best known for its annual Strawberry Festival the first weekend in June, it also offers a wide variety of recreational opportunities, such as parks, nature preserves and water sports. The Great Miami River Recreational bike path runs along the river and through the heart of downtown. No wonder Troy is one of the host cities for the Great Ohio Bicycle Adventure (GOBA, goba.com)!! If you're looking for a mostly flat, but longer scenic route along the river and through the woods, we think this route will be just right.
