Night Ride on the Towpath Trail Bike Camp-Out

The mission of the Adventure Cycling Association is to inspire and empower people to travel by bicycle. June 2-4 has been designated as National Bike Travel Weekend, and we're joining them to encourage anyone to try taking an overnight trip by bicycle.

On June 3, 2017, we're transforming our Night Ride on the Towpath Trail into a Bike Camp-Out Night Ride! Space is limited to 32 people! There is a $10 charge per person for camping.

For full details, plus links to registration, go to:

(NOTE: The camping is totally OPTIONAL. If you don't want to camp out, you are still welcome to attend our regular FREE Night Ride on the Towpath Trail on the same evening!)

Plan for Bike Travel Weekend

Our Night Rides are FREE, open to all ages and skill levels, and take place on the car-free Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail. They are about 14 miles long, which usually takes about an hour and a half to two hours. You must have your own bicycle, headlight, and helmet.

For more details, including the full 2017 schedule, directions, preparation and safety tips, and photos from past rides, go to:

The biggest bike-to-school program in the nation, the Century Cycles Bike to School Challenge , prepares to wrap up this week.

The Bay Bike To School Challenge (at Bay Middle School and Westerly Elementary), and the Rocky River Bike To School Challenge (at Rocky River Middle School and Kensington Intermediate Elementary) both end on Friday, May 19. The Medina Bike To School Challenge (at A.I. Root Middle School Claggett Middle School, and H.G. Blake Elementary) concluded on Friday, May 12.

Despite cold and wet weather during the first week, students at participating schools continued to rack up impressive numbers for riding their bikes to school.

Students get a Ride Card with stamps for each day the bike to school, with and extra stamp awarded when they wear a helmet. Each stamp is an entry for the grand prize drawings held at each school at the conclusion of the program, with top prizes of bicycles provided by Century Cycles, Giant Bicycles, Liv Cycling, and Mellion Orthodontics. Other prizes are provided by local sponsors (see below).
