CHANGE OF DATE
2015 Bloom & Zoom bike ride will be held on Saturday, July 25, 2015. Come back soon for more information on the ride and start locations.
Maplehart-Pumpkinvine Trail Connection Complete!
I rode it Tuesday, 11/15/11, and the new “Goshen Connection” bikeway is 100% complete connecting the south end of the Maplehart trail on Wilden Ave. to the Pumpkinving trailhead on the north side of Goshen. I live by Concord HS and get on the Maplehart at CR13 and ride out to the end of the PVT at CR33 for a 28-mile roundtrip ride on 100% bike path! I can also add miles by going in and around Ox Bow park or go north to Elkhart to the Sterling Ave. bike lane and on into Elkhart and the Elkhart bike paths. Elkhart cyclists now have “trail” access to Goshen and the Pumpkinvine and vice versa. (See pictures of the Pumpkinvine Trail on the Photo Gallery tab.)
Welcome to the Bike Elkhart web site!
