Hundreds of bike riders took advantage of the nice weather to take a ride Sunday morning.   

The Wheeling Heritage Bike Tour began just before 9 a.m. at Heritage Port. The bike tour has taken place the day after the Ogden Half Marathon for about a decade now and in that time it’s become a great way to showcase Wheeling as a bike-friendly city.

“We kind of like this weekend of Memorial Day, the Ogden race is on Saturday, we’re on Sunday,” Ohio Valley Trail Partners Vice President Chris Villamagna said. “It’s a good thing to start your Memorial Day and summer season. We get about 300 riders I’d say and it’s been a great event every year so far and it seems to be that people enjoy it.”

The bike tour was broken down into three sections, the 100K tour, a 30 mile tour, and a 10 mile tour. Anyone could ride Sunday, but riders under the age of 18 had to ride with a parent and of course safety first so every rider had to wear a helmet.
