What we're about

This group is for bicycle travelers from anywhere in the Northeastern United States! Unlike most other cycling groups, this group focuses on multi-day, overnight, self-supported bicycle tours. Our goal is to bring together people of all ages and experience levels who are interested in bicycle travel. We will have presentations, training, tours and social events at various times throughout the year. Outside of "peak" cycling season, feel free to hang around in the "Discussions" area to chat with other members. Hope to see you on the road!

White Mountains Weekend Tour

Needs a location

This is one of my favorite short tours. I first toured this route about 20 years ago and have led a few groups trips on it in the past. We'll start and end at Crawford Notch and will primarily follow route 302, 16 and 2, with an overnight stop for camping in Gorham.

The first day is 35 miles and the second day is 42 miles. There will be some long but steady climbs.

I'll arrange camping and coordinate all group activities. I can also provide limited mechanical support (you'll need to carry your own spare parts).

I'm posting this tour as a "feeler" to see what the interest is. The date may change and I'll probably charge a small fee (maybe $25) which will cover camping and my time organizing the tour and running the NBT groups.

Ohio to Erie Trail- cool kids from meetup summer Fun Bike Ride - join us!

UPDATE[masked] We have added a second week. Everyone who RSVPd here by midnight 2/8/22 for this week, will get a spot on 1 of the 2 tours. See which dates are better for you. Some folks prefer to park at the finish and take the shuttle over before their ride starts. Then they are at their car at the end. Week 2 is Friday July 15th to Thursday July 21st. https://www.meetup.com/funbiketrips/events/283874534/­ If that week is better add your RSVP there and remove yourself from this one.

ORIGINAL LISTING BELOW

I did the Ohio to Erie trail last summer, which is really 22 trails that take you across the state. I did it just to get another 300 plus miles for the year in but I found the Ohio to Erie trail network to be amazing. I plan to take a group of Florida meetup up peeps there in early July.

So let’s bike the Ohio to Erie Trail. If not on your bucket list yet, it will be! A virtually undiscovered gem.

We saw this trip priced at over $3,000 by more than one tour provider and said hey let's see if we can do more affordably for "10 to 20 meetup cool kids"! We can do it for $1,395 double occupancy.

This scenic 326-mile trail links the Ohio River to Lake Erie, primarily on rail trails and canal paths. It traverses four major cities, numerous quaint small towns and miles of pastoral countryside. Do it before more and more people learn of it and add it to their bucket list! This trail can be done on a road bike as it is paved until the 20th of the 20 trails. The last section is finely packed limestone. For that section 28mm tires are ok, but it’s better to have 30mm+.

Join the 326-mile club by riding the whole trail with us and www.FunBikeTrips.com. Why endure the wear and tear on yourself and your bike with gravel or dirt trails when you can enjoy this scenic well-groomed, well-planned trek?

· 3 Nights of Complimentary Social Hours (wine, beer, soda, snacks etc)

FAQ-IS THERE A GROUP START TIME TO BEGIN EACH DAY? DO I HAVE TO KEEP UP WITH ANYONE?
Have a fun ride at your own pace and leave the hotel whenever you wish. Hopefully this is a vacation! There is no mass start. Most riders leave between 7-9am. Relax and take your time, since SAG vehicles stay out until the last rider finishes. Rider's average speed on our tours range from 9-20mph, so there's always someone to ride with if you wish. We encourage riders to take their time, stop at see the sights, and take in a bakery or three. We have several local Ohio meetup friends who will ride sections with us.
