Jordan Hart and the Underground Railroad Bicycle Route
Jordan Hart is a local photographer, cyclist, scout leader and all around outdoor enthusiast. Starting at a young age he got hooked on the outdoors and adventure. In 2003, he rode to Lake Erie with his scout troop and fell in love with long distance cycling.
In the fall of 2016, Hart rode his bicycle over 2,000 miles along America's legendary route to freedom, the Underground Railroad. From Mobile, Alabama to Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada, the Underground Railroad Bicycle Route traces the path many slaves took to freedom from the Deep South to Canada. The journey took him past points of interest and historic sites including many in southwest Ohio and the City of Springboro.
Learn about the trials, tribulations, and high points of the journey! Hart's talk is free and open to the public. There is no need to register. Event is cosponsored by the City of Springboro and the Franklin-Springboro Public Library. For more information please contact Dan Boron at (937) 748-6183 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
