How long does a 19 mile bike ride take to complete?

Depending on your pace, a 19 mile bike ride should take about 2 hours to complete. That being said, this is a ride NOT a race. We encourage people to take their time and appreciate everything there is to see and experience along the route. So, to get the most out of the ride and the route, you should budget 3 hours to do one 19 mile loop.

The alternative 6 mile bike route should take about an hour to complete depending on your pace.
