Route: Come have fun and enjoy this bike ride from Matthews Beach to Medina Beach and back. Restrooms available at the Medina City Hall/Beach Park were we take a short break mid-ride. The terrain is fairly flat with some hill climbing on the 520 bridge section and north bound in Medina. Route goes through Urban Center for Horticulture that has some gravel for about a mile.
