From fat tire bikes in winter to mountain bikes in summer and beyond, cycling fans have been discovering the great trail system at Berrien County’s Love Creek County Park…and now there’ll be even more opportunities to hit the trail.
Berrien County Parks Department is pleased to announce that Whirlpool Corporation and the Bike Michiana Coalition has made a generous donation of mountain bikes to Love Creek County Park. The bikes are to be used on the mountain biking trails at Love Creek County Park. Eight  adult and six  children’s mountain bikes are now available. The adult bikes can be rented for $10 per hour and children’s bikes are complimentary with an adult bike rental.
Derk Pelc is Chief Naturalist at Love Creek near Berrien Springs. He says, “When I became aware of this donation, I was thrilled!” and adds, “What another incredible attraction for people to get out and enjoy nature, the trails and the amenities at the nature center here at Love Creek County Park.” The fact that parents don’t have to load, unload and secure their own bikes is time saving. Also, for people that don’t have mountain bikes or are considering purchasing a mountain bike, this is a great way to sample the fun outdoor activity first to help guide that decision.
The staff at Love Creek County Park remind people to always ride safely, wear a helmet and respect nature and the people visiting Love Creek County Park. Love Creek County Park is located at 9292 Huckleberry Road in Berrien Center and the office telephone number is 269-471-2617 and the website for additional information is www.berriencounty/parks.
