Summer Biking

The summer biking group meets on Tuesday evenings starting in May through August, and we ride a section on the Ohio Towpath between Akron and Navarre, weather permitting. You ride at your own pace and go as far as you are comfortable with on that day. Our rule of thumb is we ride out for 45 minutes, take a short break, then return, making the ride about an hour and a half long as a guideline. There are Saturday rides included to coincide with other activities in the area.

The Tuesday evening rides will be starting at 6 PM, weather permitting. The minimum temperature we shoot for is 60 degrees, and of course, not raining. I am giving up on trying to second guess if it is going to rain or not, so I will not send out any ride canceled notifications. Use your best judgement. You do not need to be Stark County Ski Club member to ride with us. You do not even need to be a rider, as you are welcome to join us and just take a walk on the trail.

With Covid-19 still hanging around, the optional after-ride gathering listed will be places that have an outside patio. These are only suggestions might be changed to comply with the state restrictions at the time of the ride. We will need to follow all mandated guidelines for social distance and split up into smaller groups if necessary.

If you want more information or have questions, send an email to scscbikers@outlook.com.
