Return to print: A special note!

We don’t have to tell you the last couple of years have been tough. Lost business, few recreational events, and diminished social contact have taken a toll on us all. That said, we are moving ahead with plans for a return to print in 2022, with faith that bicycle event organizers and hosts will have found ways to stage their events with minimal COVID-19 risk. In November 2021 we will be mailing our “annual” Bicycle Event Questionnaire to bicycle clubs and event contacts. Since we’ll be aiming for a print deadline rather than the website publish-as-we-go approach, it will be important for events to return completed questionnaires in a timely fashion. Advertisers, too, will need to get their materials in to us on time.

So, advertisers and ride officials, be looking for our questionnaire in the mail soon.

If your club or event doesn’t have a postal mailing address you will need to access our form via the Event Support page of this website. Updated PDF coming soon!

So best wishes to you and lets hope for a greater and happier cycling season in 2022.

James Guilford, Editor

Calendar Resources and Support for Event Coordinators, Planners, Promoters

Pictures Wanted! Do you have excellent photographs from an Ohio bicycling event? We would love to see them to consider for possible use in the Ohio Bicycle Events Calendar. Payment will be offered for the use of the photographs selected for use along with a photographer’s credit line (additional guidelines and payment details are coming soon). Payment is intended as remuneration to original creators of the work. Organizations should consider the excellent publicity such a photo would offer your event if it is chosen but, if work was created for the organization’s promotional use (paid for or donated) the organization does not qualify for payment. Send any photographic prints to the postal address given below. Electronic formats or links to images can be sent to the email address available below: reduced fit sizes for editorial consideration are appreciated; we can make special arrangements for big files should the picture be chosen for use. Be sure to include the event’s name and the name of the photographer. Photographic prints should also have the return mailing address printed on the back of the print if return is desired. Pictures must depict cycling in Ohio. Cyclists must be wearing helmets if riding and practicing safe cycling if on the road. Make ’em fun, exciting, interesting, beautiful but please, no “crowd shots” of folks milling about, no pictures of food lines.
