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.

4th Annual Easter Post-Sunrise Ride

Summit County Bike and Hike Rt 82 Trailhead

4th Annual Easter Post-Sunrise Ride It is early in 2019, but this is the time many of us begin to plan out our spring/summer events. So I'm getting this on the calendar with an optimistic attitude that spring will be here before we know it. :-) Join me if you can. 15 MILE RIDE: Join me for a lovely, peaceful Easter morning post-sunrise bike ride beginning at Rt. 82 Bike and Hike Trail parking lot (685 & 686 Aurora Rd. Sagamore Hills). We will head south with a stop at Brandywine Falls, then on to RT. 303, where we will turn-around and return to Rt. 82. This is approximately a 15 mile ride and will be at a slower (winter-legs) pace. EASTER BRUNCH: Afterwards, we can go to First Watch in Macedonia, 463 E. Aurora Rd. for Easter Brunch (regular menu). First Watch is located in the small plaza at the intersection of Rt. 8 and 82 (Aurora Rd). EASTER BONUS: Easter treats this year. WEATHER: Easter is a little later in April this year, so hoping for sunny, warm skies. But you never know this time of year. Rain or bitter cold would cancel, but will keep you posted as early as possible if inclement weather is expected.

Spring Birthdays in Brecksville Ride 2019

Station Road

Spring Birthdays in Brecksville Hey everyone, let's try for an easy spring ride on the Brecksville Reservation All Purpose Paved Trail and then lunch at Burntwood Tavern after to celebrate spring birthdays this year. I try to hold a ride on or near my birthday each year to celebrate spring and the return of biking season. Sometimes it happens and the weather cooperates. Let's keep our fingers crossed this year. This ride should be about 12 miles with two points of out and back. We'll start at Station Road Bridge pickup the trail across RiverView Road. We can go south, turn-around, and pickup a bit of the APT that goes north, then back to Station Road. Distance: Approximately 12 miles Pace: Slow to Moderate (10-12 mph) Start: Station Road Bridge (10:30 am) 15315 station rd Brecksville, OH 44141 Lunch: Burntwood Tavern (around 12:00) 8188 Brecksville Rd, Brecksville, OH 44141 Benefits: This is a good chance to get your legs back on a bike - with a slower pace, and no one left behind. And then there is lunch for those interested. Flexibility: For those who would just like to come to lunch, we will probably gather at Burntwood on Brecksville Road at about noon. Join us for that portion if you can. Please let me know in the comments if you are planning on Burntwood so that I can give them a heads-up. Weather: This time of year is tricky - could be 75 and sunny, or 45 and rain. If we need to cancel, I will notify everyone ASAP By accepting this Spin-off Cyclists Bicycle Club event’s RSVP and attending this event, I acknowledge that I have read and voluntarily agree to the RELEASE AND WAIVER OF LIABILITY AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK AND INDEMNITY AGREEMENT.
