What we're about

Welcome!

The Spin Off Cyclists Bicycle Club offers rides on the Towpath Trail and area rail trails. The Spin-offs cycle for exercise, pleasure and making friends with other cyclists. We welcome people of all ages, abilities and speeds who want to cycle with a group. We encourage our members to bring their families and friends on the ride.

Our weekly rides include shorter rides for the casual cyclist, and longer faster rides for the recreational cyclist. We offer a varierty of rides on the weekend, often to rail trails in Northeast Ohio and beyond. These rides are excellent opportunities to explore Ohio and neighboring states from a different point of view.

Cycling is easier than most people imagine. It is an excellent form of exercise that yields some great benefits to your health and wellbeing. Why spend the evening or weekend in front of the TV when you can experience fresh air and nature with a fun group of people? We hope to see you on an upcoming ride!

Our Mission

Encourage a healthy and active lifestyle; and open the world of cycling to riders in Northeast Ohio. We accomplish this through bicycle trail rides that encourage self confidence and develop the riding skills of our members while providing opportunities for fitness, fun and friendship.

A Ride Along The Allegheny River

Lakes to the Sea HIghway (Rt. 322), Franklin , PA

This ride will along the Allegheny River and will be 56-58 miles round trip and travel 12-15 mph. It's labeled as difficult do to length We will meet at The Samuel Justus Recreation Trail Visitor Center located east of Franklin, Pa. just across the Allegheny River on Rt. 322 (8th St.). Here are the coordinates: 41°23'14.5"N 79°49'02.9"W. To reach the Franklin trailhead (on the north end of the trail), take Route 8 North to its junction with US 322. Take US 322, which becomes 8th Street in Franklin and crosses the Allegheny River. The trailhead parking lot is on the right. The lot sign says "Samuel Justus Trail," which is the rail-trail going north from Franklin. The Allegheny River Trail goes south from the lot. Please give yourself plenty of time to get here and to get ready to ride at 9:00 so others aren't forced to wait. P.S. Many of us stop at a local restaurant afterward for food, beverages, and discussion about our ride. There is a trailhead at the turnaround point in Emblenton with porta potties. but no running water. You can ride into town to a grocery Please be sure to bring additional water. There are no places along The trail to refresh your water supply and no restrooms. It may be very hot this day! Hydration is very important! You can ride to the local grocery and buy additional water if needed Pack some energy snacks for the trail. This is a scenic, asphalt, flat, out and back approximately 56 miles round trip, so I would label it more on the difficult side (only do to length and speed). Having said that, if you feel like only riding part of the trail, then no problem. You can turn around at any point and ride back. (It literally is a straight out and back trail and pretty well traveled)so very easy to get back to trail head). There are two tunnels toward Emlenton. One is long, curved, and DARK, so you must have a light or be riding with someone that does. Also, there is a 3/4 mile heavily graveled/rutted road section that may be tough to ride, but walking your bike through this section is no problem. Oh, it may be a good idea to have an extra tube and/or patch kit with you.
