In the early 1800s, a German inventor created a machine resembling a bicycle—a front wheel capable of being steered, a padded seat, and an armrest that helped in exerting force against the ground. After receiving a patent in 1818, he took his vehicle to Paris where it was renamed the velocipede (and nicknamed the "dandy horse"). The term remained in use until the late 1800s, when the word bicycle appeared. Cycling, cider, and community meet in this two-day event, featuring an 11-mile bike ride, the Ramble Ride, winding through Warwick's countryside. On Saturday, June 25, the Pennings Farm Cidery Tasting Room will hold a five-course farm-to-table dinner. Weekend activities include a selection of bike rides for all ages, live music, farm tours, cycling vendors, a farm market, and more. On Sunday morning, June 26, different rides will depart throughout the area. Presented by Wrenegade Sports and Pennings Farm, general admission for the postride festival and live music is free. The Ramble Ride entry fee is $34.99 for adults and $22.99 for children 12 years old and younger. The price includes the postride BBQ, ride support, a welcome bag, and more.
