The Youngstown Ski Club Cycle Circle
2017 Schedule
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. 

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.

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 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...

Stay active this Summer and join bicycle enthusiasts from local Ski Clubs for OPEN and friendly rides on area bike trails every Thursday evening, and one weekend day each month. Participants meet for the weekday rides at 5:50 pm and try to start the ride as close to 6:00 pm as possible. ​Weekend rides are often unique, scenic excursions with their own schedule. All levels of riders and bicycle types are welcomed and encouraged to "PEDAL" with us and our “CIRCLE” of fun friends.

This month is the LAST organized month of group riding on Thursday's! We hope it still offers warm and dry weather for our participants, and we encourage participants to bring whatever they need to hydrate and be comfortable. We like to think of this as a wonderful way to meet other enthusiasts, get some exercise, experience our scenic trail systems, and enjoy some interesting conversation. We hope to grow in numbers, so bring your friends and other riders...
