We are excited to announce that riders in southern Ohio are going to have a trip to remember along Ohio's wonderful Little Miami Scenic Trail. All riders will begin in Cedarville and make their way through the beautiful farmland of Madison, Green or Warren counties depending on distance. Riders may go north to London and back or south through Spring Valley, depending on the miles you want to cover. Registration will take place at 8:30 am on the south edge of Cedarville between the park pavillion and bike path just east of where 72 crosses the bike path. All riders should wear helmets and carry water. The day is planned for all age groups and levels of riders. Make plans to be part of this very special day. Participation fee of $25 per person includes T-Shirt or $50 (incl. 2 shirts) per family due with Registration form. Sponsor forms and scholarship donations are due on day of the ride.

Century Riders

All those planning to ride 100 miles will enjoy this adventure. The 100 mile ride begins with registration in Cedarville at 8:30 am or earlier if pre-arranged. Riders will ride north to London and back and then south toward Morgan's Canoe. London, South Charleston, Cedarville, and Xenia will eachhave rest rooms for your convenience. Once in Spring Valley, you will continue on another fifteen miles or so to a place called Morgan's Canoe and Outdoor Center. Once there you will begin your journey back towards Cedarville.

We are asking all of our century riders to be sure that they are in good physical condition prior to the trip, having ridden at least 75 miles two weeks before the beginning of the ride. Also, all riders need to be prepared to fix their own flats and have all basic tools for the task.

Enthusiast Riders

A 60 mile choice - Beginning in Cedarville riders may first go north to London and back [44 miles] and then Cedarville south to the Xenia Bike Hub and back [16 miles]. Or riders may go south to Xenia (8 miles) and on to Spring Valley (15 miles), continuing on toward Morgan's Canoe and Outdoor Center another 7 miles and back to Cedarville. Registration for this trip is 8:30 am in Cedarville.

Fun Ride

A 43/44 mile ride from Cedarville through the Bicycle hub in Xenia, then north tthrough Yellow Springs. Continue north of Yellow Springs for another 1-1/2 mile. Then watch for the sign to Youngs Dairy along the bike path. It wil direct you @ 1/4 mile to Rt. 68 and another 1/4 mile to Youngs Dairy. Enjoy a treat together before returning to Cedarville. Registration for this ride is at 8:30 am.

Family Friendly Riders

A 16 or 22 mile choice. Registration for this ride is in Cedarville at 8:30 am. From Cedarville to South Charleston and back is 22 miles. From Cedarville to the Xenia hub and back would be 16 miles. This can be extended by another scenic 4 miles by continuing west past Xenia to the first stop. Check maps at the Xenia hub.

Making sure that your bicycle is in good working order prior to the trip will help ensure that you have a wonderful day. But carrying a cell phone and giving number at registration will be helpful in case of emergency or other needs along the way.

Cleveland (Harvard Rd.) to Akron-Canton
To see Towpath Trail Maps, follow links in First Paragraph

Enjoy the beauty of this scenic trail following a 5.7 mile portion of the Ohio and Erie Canal in the Cleveland Metroparks and another 3 mile section of Cuyahoga Valley National Park. The trail winds its way along the canal or river – and occasionally, both can be seen on either side of the trail.

Family Friendly! Nearly 18- mile or any smaller segment, if you choose to turn around sooner.

This is a very Family Friendly trail – the Cleveland Parks portion is paved; the National Park portion has a nice fine gravel surface. Both are quite level. Start time 9:00 am. Riders begin at the Canal Visitor Center in the national park. Riders who want to cover the 18-mile stretch will ride 1 1/4 mile south to the closed section, then back north, past the Visitor Center, then north 1.8 miles to Rockside Road and Lock 39 where the trail connects to the Cleveland Metroparks Towpath Trail . From there the trail is paved and continues another 5.7 miles to Harvard Avenue – a total of 7.5 miles. Snacks and water will be available at the Harvard turn-around. Riders will then retrace the trail back to the Canal Visitor Center. Note: An ice cream shop is very close to the trail at Rockside Road.

Engage friends to sponsor you so much per mile. All sponsor money goes toward the youth scholarships. Registration money covers expenses for the ride. All riders will begin in the National Park at the Canal Visitor Center. Registration will take place outside the Center near the parking lot. It is always wise to carry water or snacks with you.
