Working nights does offer a few advantages. A few — but one of the big ones and my personal favorite is that it gives me time to ride my bike. That is at least on days unlike today when I spent the morning waiting for the predicted thunderstorms, which deep down I know will only come if I head out on bike. But at least I was able to put the morning to good use, and I don't mean getting caught up on episodes of American Dad. I had the chance to talk to Owen Worozbyt of the Lackawanna Heritage Valley about the fourth annual Heritage Explorer Bike Tour and Festival scheduled for next month. Worozbyt made the event, which is scheduled for June 15, sound like a good time. This event starts at Blakely Borough Recreational Complex in Peckville, and continues along the scenic and historic Lackawanna River Heritage Trail through Archbald, Jermyn, Carbondale, Simpson, and Union Dale. Worozbyt called the event “more of a friend raiser than a fundraiser,” saying that the groups main hope is to expose more people the the trail. They hope to have over 800 cyclists this year. Unfortunately, it's doubtful that I will be one of them unless my wife allows me to move a second bike into the house. According to Worozbyt, some portions of the trail would be a little rough for my road bike. Maybe a trip to the bike shop can help me pass the rest of the day. Anyway, read Sunday's column for more information on the ride.
