This year we will produce more than 20,000 copies of the Ohio Bicycle Federation’s Ohio Bicycle Events Calendar for circulation throughout Ohio and portions of neighboring states. The Calendar is distributed through bicycle clubs, bicycle shops, and other outlets.

The Calendar is in high demand, a valuable tool for adult cycling enthusiasts — men and women who want the best gear to enhance their enjoyment of the sport. Cyclists retain the Calendar and use it throughout the cycling season.

Your ad shows your support of Ohio cycling and will be seen repeatedly by thousands of dedicated cyclists. Our rates have remained the same since we first accepted advertising in the Calendar in 1997 and represent a real bargain, the best way for you to get your message to Ohio cyclists. Here are the rates with ad specifications:

The above prices are for ad art created to the sizes listed above (neither larger nor smaller). Art must be in digital image formats (preferred) or as “camera-ready” scannable hardcopy. Our desktop publishing system can import: *.tif or *.jpg or *.png or *.pdf (*.tif files are preferred) at 300 pixel resolution. If possible, color ads in electronic format should be CMYK for best four-color process reproduction.

The clearer and cleaner your ad art is, the better your ad will look. We use coated paper stock and a very high-quality printing company to produce the calendar and any imperfections will show. Text and line art are best for smaller ad sizes; keep your type size large in those small ads or they won’t be legible!

Payment is due before publication. Deadline for inclusion is Jan. 27 of the publication year.
