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

Schmidt Boat Launch Ramp

I did the Ohio to Erie trail in 2021, 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.

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 "12 to 25 meetup cool kids"! We can do it for $1,995 double occupancy.

Note if you do not need a hotel in Cincinnati we can reduce by 200 per room, and
if you don't need one afterwards in Cleveland we can reduce by $224 per room, so that assumes your roommate (if any) does not need a room.

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?

Fun Bike Trip Inclusions for just $1,995:

· 8 nights of hotels, which includes 5 breakfasts (3 buffet, 2 on the go), and 4 hotels with pools (you’ll thank us later).

· RideWithGPS maps and "Cue" sheets

· SAG vehicle driven by tour owner who has done this and many other tours. We will carry your luggage from hotel to hotel!

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

· Affordably Priced. In fact, at $1,995 we are less than two thirds the price ($3,090 charged by some other operators.

· Great weather! Cleveland, Ohio Average temperature July 83 / 64°F
· Small town Midwestern hospitality, we anticipate local meetup friends will ride with us on several days.
· Your Luggage Carried for You, need a break? Ride in our van!
· 86% Traffic-free cycling on 22+ bike paths,

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.

RSVP here now as a place holder, no obligation and so you get invited to info sessions.
