Waverly, N.Y. - If you enjoy riding your bicycle along the roads in Tioga County, we have just the thing for you - the 12th Annual Bike Tioga event! Bike Tioga is being held on August 9th in its new location in downtown Waverly. Bike Tioga is not a race, but a ride of either 20, 40 or 60 miles with various elevations throughout beautiful Tioga County and riders are needed to participate.

This event has always emphasized a relaxed, fun environment and riders are encouraged to stop along the way to visit local business and tourist attractions. Picnic lunches and farm visits have been popular stops in the past.

Participants are asked to pre-register online by going to www.biketiogawaverly.com, or stopping in the Railhouse Restaurant in Waverly or the Tioga Tourism Office in Owego. Registration begins at 7:30 am on August 9 for the 60 mile ride, 8:00 am for the 40 mile ride, and 8:30 am for the 20 mile ride.
