Third Place and Whitewater Publications has teamed up with the Cincinnait Cycle Club to host the 11th annual Great Pumpkin Roll Gran Fondo which welcomes cyclists to tour the scenic routes and rural communities on September 24.
Cyclists can take part in routes ranging from 24 to 65 miles that begin and end in Brookville.
The ride will go through the St. Mary's, into Oldenburg, through Enochsburg, past Ertel's Winery and into St. Peters before returning to Brookville.
It's a perfect weekend getaway as it's also Brookville's Germanfest as well as the Antique Machinery Show that weekend.
"This is a great chance to see Franklin County at our very best," said Third Place owner Mick Wilz. "From the fall colors that decorate the region to the historic Village of Spires in Oldenburg and even the covered bridge in Enochsburg, we are so excited to welcome new people to the community while encouraging locals to get involved."
The ride is fully supported with three super-stocked rest stops. After the ride, dig into a hot post ride meal included in your registration and live music.
