What we're about

Meet the Spinoffs!

We are a group of cyclists of all ages, sizes, body types, ethnicities, political persuasions, religions, sexual orientations, intellectual capacities, and abilities who cycle the trails and back roads of Northeast Ohio and surrounding areas for fun, health, and friendship.

We welcome riders from the novice to the experienced. What brings us together is a desire to maintain a healthy lifestyle, share friendship, and enjoy the outdoors by cycling.

Our Mission

To encourage a healthy and active lifestyle and open the world of cycling to riders in Northeast Ohio. We accomplish this through bicycle rides of various difficulties. From basic trail rides that build self confidence and develop the riding skills of our members to more challenging rides for experienced riders, all our events provide opportunities for fitness, fun and friendship.

COST:
Cost for 3 nights lodging could be $150 to $250 but probably on the lower side, depending on number of riders and double occupancy. Parking is $12.50/Day. Ferry fare is $22.50 round trip. Food, and miscellaneous expenses are on your own.

LODGING:
• Night 1: Leamington: For the first night, you make your own reservation, (I am arranging for nights 2 & 3 based on number of riders.)
The Triker Duo is staying at Days Inn by Wyndham Leamington, but there are many other options. Leamington is a small town, so we won't be too far apart. But it is a tourist area, so don't delay. January is not too early to book something.

• Night 2: Pelee Island: Westview Motel & Cottages is very close to the Ferry dock. I will arrange appropriate lodging in rooms or cottages based on the number of riders and bunkmates.

• Night 3: Amherstburg: AirBnB "The Beach House" <==LINK
And if needed, AirBnB "Stylish Private Guest Suite" <==LINK.
The Beach house has 5 bedrooms - the overflow place sleeps 2.
