Where the river burned… A historical Bicycle tour

Registration is full! Thanks for your interest!

Thanks for your interest in touring with the Ohio City Bicycle Co-op to visit spots where the Cuyahoga river burned, and other sites of historical interest. Here is some info that will help you enjoy our tour.
The ride will depart from promptly at 1pm, and should return to by 3pm. (We will ride at the pace of the slowest riders, so may be later than expected.) 

We are located in the Flats, near Merwin’s Warf and Rivergate park Metroparks Reservation– if you GPS to 1775 Merwin Ave you will see our sign by the gate to our lot.

This ride is being lead in small groups by League of American Bicyclists certified instructors who have route instructions, so there will not be arrows painted on the roadway or paper maps handed out, as you may have used in most “club rides.” 
The route will be about 14 miles, with two gentle climbs, and is mostly on city streets, with as much of the new Towpath Trail as possible included. There will be brief stops for interpretive discussion and restrooms along the way. Traffic will be light, but everyone is expected to ride legally, and helmets are required (we have some for loan if needed).

I will be at OCBC by noon, to help with helmet fitting and any bike mechanical issues — but you can save time by inflating your tires and giving your bike this simple Safety Check.  We will have a final safety check and group orientation at 12:45pm.
