June 3-5, 2022
Bike Travel Weekend encourages everyone to discover the joy of travelling by bicycle! First held in 2016, it is organized by the Adventure Cycling Association and traditionally held the first weekend of June.
Bike touring is not hard; you can take a short ride from your home to a local park or other destination, camp out or stay at a hotel/motel/B&B, then ride home the next day! Almost any bike can be set up for bike touring; stop in to one of our stores for some expert advice!
Register your bike trip or join an existing one, and you might win a new bicycle! Get details at: biketravelweekend.org
Join Us for our 2022 Bike Camp-Out Ride!
Similar to what we've done in past years, we'll meet at Century Cycles in Peninsula and ride to the campsite as a group on Saturday, June 4, 2022. This year, we'll be camping at Stow Silver Springs Park Campground. It's a short 10-mile ride, but as always, the climb out of the Cuyahoga Valley will be the biggest challenge! The rest is all on the easy Summit Metro Parks Bike & Hike Trail. We'll take the same route back to the store on Sunday morning. Preview the full route here.
You'll need to have your own bicycle, camping gear, and whatever food you plan to eat in the evening and morning. If you don't want to bother packing food, there are restaurants and grocery stores a short detour off the route.
This event is FREE but is limited to 12 participants!
