Rides & Events

Check this page often for updated listings of all types of cycling events in and around our area.

 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!

If you have a ride that you want posted on our website, please e-mail us at:

May 20, 2017Tuscazoar Twain Reign of PainCamp 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.
