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.

Ohio State Fair Homebrew Competition and Bike Ride

Ohio Expo Center & State Fair

Pedal pushers who also like beer - Listen up! Every year, I volunteer as a steward at the Ohio State Fair Homebrew Competition, which is held at the fairgrounds in Columbus. It’s a great time, I sample LOTS of beers, and I hang out in Short North in the evenings. This year, because I will be doing a 2000 mile bike ride to stop Diabetes in May and June, I am unable to help. And I serve as co-head steward, so I promised Brett that I would try to recruit some stewards. The judging is on SAT, June 1. How about somebody take over as host and plan a ride on C-bus trails for Sunday. And all of you, PLEASE consider helping out as a steward. It’s a fun, easy job. You are essentially, a waiter for a table of judges. You do have to do a little arithmetic: 1) You have to check the judges arithmetic. Can you add 5 numbers that come to about 30? 2) You have to average two judges scores. Can you add two 2-digit numbers together and divide by 2? p.s. You can use a calculator!!! ☺ Aside from that, you can sample a lot of beers in every style. (BE CAREFUL! You still have to add 5 numbers!) Please consider it. To get on the list, Contact: Brett D. Chance Entertainment Director Ohio State Fair voice:[masked] [masked] Thanks and Prost! Greg Man cannot live on beer alone. That’s why God gave us pretzels!
