Rides & Events

Local Bicycle Rides

 Rides require, at minimum, an appropriate bike in good working order, water, and a helmet. Our night rides require suitable lights front and rear. We suggest a spare tube, energy food, maybe a little cash in case we stop, and your biggest smile! Many rides are held subject to weather. It's a good idea to confirm dates, time and any specific requirements, too. We'll see you out there — and have fun!

Our Weekly Group Rides

Our Weekly bicycle rides require a safe operating bicycle, helmet and rear flashing light (Daytime visible).  Our night rides require a front and rear light as well.  Proper nutrition, hydration, and flat changing items are highly recommended.

Sep 15, 2018Race to the Roost at Camp TuscazoarCamp TuscazoarNoteworthy adventure often begins with a team of two. Painful, soul testing experience that pushes one's perceived concept of possible is better when shared. It takes two to make-a things go right. It is with this understanding that we invite you to find a partner in crime and join 331 Racing and the Dirt Line Organization for the TUSCAZOAR TWAIN REIGN OF PAIN. Tackling one of Ohio's newest trail systems, Camp Tusc is a cross country course with narrow single track, exposed roots, tire chewing rocks, and 1200' of steep climbing per 5.5 mile lap that will reveal breath taking, oxygen deprived vistas.
