Rides and Events
Check this page often for updated listings of all types of cycling events in and around our area. Rides require, at minimum, an appropriate bike in good working order, water, and a helmet. We suggest a spare tube, energy food, maybe a little cash in case we stop, and your biggest smile! Many rides are held subject to weather. It's a good idea to confirm dates, time and any specific requirements, too. We'll see you out there — and have fun!
These rides will soon have a page linked on the CCC website!!!
All rides are held by the Oxford Chain Gang, a cluster group of the Cincinnati Cycle Club. Helmets are required. Go to www.cincinnaticycleclub.org for more information. Join the club and receive a discount at BikeWise and other local shops. No-drop in the ride description means no one is left behind, and the ride regularly regroups.
Monday Nite Ride Departs 6:15PM from BikeWise
A traditional favorite for years, the Monday Nite Ride is a moderately paced (14-16mph avg.) no-drop ride approximately 25 miles in length over rolling terrain with a few significant hills. Road bikes are strongly recommended. Pizza and soft drinks afterwards-BYOB if you want-we'll keep it cold for you while you pedal!
Tuesday Morning Women's Ride Departs 6:30AM from BikeWise
This ride is a great way to get to know the other female cyclists in our club. Pace is casual with a comfortable 12-14mph average and a distance of 15-20 miles. This is a no-drop ride.
Wednesday Ice Cream Ride Departs 6:15PM from BikeWise
The famous Wednesday Ice Cream sortie is back with a twist. Our little group couldn't keep the ice cream shop open in College Corner no matter how much we ate, so now we pedal the backroads to the park in College Corner, let the kids play a while while the adults chat, then head back for a creamy reward at the United Dairy Farmers across from the shop. This ride is perfect for new riders and families with children in trailers or tag-along bikes. Pace is a leisurely 10-12mph, and the distance is 15 miles. No drop.
