CYCLE CIRCLE

The Youngstown Ski Club Cycle Circle
2017
CYCYLE CIRCLE SCHEDULE:

This activity is on hold during the Winter months for the Group Rides, but individuals are still encouraged to keep at it. There is nothing like the freedom and wonderment of riding a bike outside. We only ask that the brave few that ride in colder weather are prepared to do so. Local retailers, including our friends at Trailside Bicycle have some insight into this, and you can find their info and others on our "Links" page.

Check back with us in March as we will once again organize 2017 Group Rides starting in the month of April. Volunteers will be needed to help form a committee in this regard. Is this you?  


WHAT:
Weekly group bicycling rides that rotate trails in the Tri-County area. Participants meet new people, enjoy a fun activity, and experience the scenery of the great outdoors. These bike rides are a combined effort from our Co-Sponsors, Warren Ski Club, which refers to it as a "Pedal Party". The flyer reflects both names, but the ride is shared by all! Following each ride, we gather for a social meet-up for beverages and/or a meal at a local tavern. 

WHO:
This is an open to anyone, all-inclusive event, including members, guests, and any local affiliate clubs. Riders of all levels and bike types can participate. Participants ride on mountain bikes, road bikes, hybrids, and/or trikes. While we have a few that pursue this as a workout, most of our participants ride in small groups and socialize.

WHEN:
Bike rides are scheduled weekly every Thursday around 6:00pm depending upon available light. Early and late season rides are adjusted to make the most of the sunshine. Additionally, on one weekend each month, a longer ride is scheduled to a particular trail, often coinciding with another event nearby, providing riders with a unique opportunity to enjoy the day. Cycle Circle Schedules start in April and run through the month of September. If weather conditions are favorable, we can organize rides in October, but only as interest allows...

WHY:
Why not? Any group activity genuinely promotes commaraderie. Importantly, outdoor activities offer a sense of freedom and builds upon the wonderment of our scenic parks and trail systems. These rides are also a way to keep the membership active and involved. Members are encouraged to invite guests and the general public, as this is a great introduction into what the Club offers. The additional benefit of staying active throughout the year has also proven to be worthwhile in the effective transfer from bicycle to skiis and/or snowboards.
