Sunday in June??

It’s always something… Unfortunately, due to a simple clerical error, the display advertisement offered by our friends at the Cleveland Touring Club (CTC) did not appear in the print version of this year’s Calendar. Their Sunday in June event is listed in the Calendar but the display ad is missing. The ad does appear in the Web version (see Touring Events above) and here’s what it looks like: Over many years, CTC has…

The Calendar normally is published in late February or the first week of March. Timing is heavily dependent upon submissions reaching us promptly and then, the printer’s schedule.

Not just for kids!

We must have been looking at their submission with tired eyes! We missed publishing the “adult” riding opportunities available on the August 16 Flatlanders Bike Tour! The family ride, suitable for those with young riders, was listed just fine but we left this out: Combine any or all of the four 25-mile loop routes to ride 25/50/75/100 miles for the day. Or venture out on a 60-mile loop. So, there we are!…

Dang! With all the emails and forms flying around here back in January, I lost a listing! So, I must apologize to the Major Taylor Cycling Club of Dayton for omitting their Signature Ride from the print edition of the 2015 Ohio Bicycle Events Calendar. I’ve added their event to the Web version of the Calendar and will make an effort to further promote their ride. For now, however, I’ll apologize once again and…

Calendar coming soon!

We won’t have a publication date until we receive and approve proofs and get into the press queue.
