Columbus native Spencer Dell loves to ride his bike in and around Ceraland’s serene setting. The 345-acre park, created by Cummins 50 years ago, features hills, campgrounds, exercise facilities, wildlife — coyotes, geese and skunks — and a trail that is used for bike races.
Dell frequently completes two-hour rides of up to 40 miles to train for his cycling team, Upland Brewing.
“I just like riding around the area,” he said.
And he has a special affinity for Ceraland and its 1.4-mile loop.
After two top-five finishes in prior years, Dell last year won the JWD Ceraland Challenge, which again will bring hundreds of cyclists to the park April 20.
