The 2019 Edition of the Ohio Bicycle Events Calendar is in final production and will begin shipping this Friday, March 1. You should be able to find the Calendar at many bicycle shops beginning next week. Bicycle club requests will also ship and be received within the next week.
The electronic versions of the Calendar will “go live” on our website this Friday and those are the PDF edition (not updated during the season) and the web page edition which will be updated with additions, changes, and corrections as we receive them.
Please note that we received a display ad from the Maumee Valley Adventurers (MVA) that contained errors that could not be corrected before we went to press. There were two fine MVA events that were affected by the error. Here are the events with their correct dates:
- Irish Hills Tour — Sunday, September 22
- Tombstone Tour — Saturday, October 19
- Website: https://www.mvadventurers.org/
We are also handling the growing number of Ride of Silence events a bit differently this year. Instead of listing each event with very similar descriptions separately, we have dedicated an entire page the May 15 activities. We think the new approach will aid in drawing attention to the Ride of Silence and its important mission.
So here we go: the 2019 cycling season is about to begin. We at the OBF and Ohio Bicycle Events Calendar hope you will enjoy a great cycling season, safe and full of excitement and fun!
