CYCLE CIRCLE

Youngstown Ski Club's "Cycle Circle"
2018 Group Bicycling Schedule 
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, many of our participants ride in small groups and socialize within a "circle" of friends, both new and existing!

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. Remember, a body in motion, stays in motion...

CYCLE CIRCLE APRIL 2018:

Spring is supposed to be the time to transition from skiing into bicycling. Unfortunately, the cold weather has not been conducive to getting in the saddle this month. Nonetheless, we are convinced that warm air will be upon us soon and we can meet up for some rides,  conversation, food and drinks! 
 
During this "season-opening" month of bicycle riding, we will ride the METRO PARKS BIKE TRAIL exclusively on Thursdays to acclimate everyone to this activity. We meet for the weekday rides at 5:45 pm and start our ride promptly by 6:00 pm. All levels of riders and bicycle types are welcomed and encouraged to join us and our “CIRCLE” of fun friends. Starting in May, we will schedule rotating trails each week of every month through September. Join us... 

METRO PARKS BIKE TRAIL at Kirk Road:
Thursdays April 12, 19, 26
