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.
