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!

Upcoming Cycling Events

Some of these events require fund-raising to benefit charitable organizations. Call for further information.

National Bike to Work Day

Your house to work and back

National Bike to Work Day is observed on May 18, 2018. Bike to Work Day is an annual event across the United States and Canada that promotes the bicycle as an option for commuting to work. Leading up to Bike to Work Day, national, regional, and local bicycle advocacy groups encourage people to try bicycle commuting as a healthy and safe alternative to driving by providing route information and tips for new bicycle commuters. On Bike to Work Day, a wide variety of bicycle-related events are organized. Bike to Work Day was originated by the League of American Bicyclists in 1956 and is a part of Bike-to-Work Week, which is in turn part of National Bike Month.

Funk Bottoms Gravel will once again challenge cyclists to Ohio’s Toughest Gravel Grinder. As usual, we have come up with a very special course this year. Two races, one brutal course! A one-lap 100K race and for the ultimate challenge, a double-lap 200K race. The course will take riders along some of Ohio’s most scenic backcountry roads. On each lap, riders will be challenged with over 7,000 feet of vertical climbing! The 200K race is an Ohio epic. It is a relentless and grueling climber’s course.

NOMBS Father's Day Race At Thorn!

Thorn Mountain Bike Trail

Thorn was our second race in 2023, and we were honestly a little nervous hosting it on Father's Day. We ended up with GREAT attendance, and the racers spoke and asked for it to become an annual NOMBS Father's Day tradition. Not only was attendance great, but we broke the record for the largest single donation to the Thorn trail fund. Let's do it again in 2024!

NOMBS & OGRS McLain Farm Adventure Race 2024,

McLain Farm Adventure Race

The farm, the hills and hollers, and a hillbilly race director. It can only add up to one thing, McLain Farm Adventure Race! This is our crossover event with the Ohio Gravel Race Series, and the most common question is "should I bring a gravel bike or a mountain bike?". Racers are about evenly split on this choice, and we can tell you that mental toughness is gonna be more important that bike choice at this event. This event is hard, and that's the point. Come test yourself.
