Holmes County Trail or also known as Rails to Trails are asphalt trails that are typically flat or gently sloping, with no vehicles sharing the road. "Labeled as the first Trail in the nation to accommodate Amish buggies, the unique and scenic Holmes County Trail has two lanes, one lane of the trail is paved with asphalt for biking, while the adjoining buggy and equestrian trail is paved with "chip and seal" for horse-drawn vehicles and horseback riding." (Holmes County Trail site)This ride is for intermediate riders or families who like to ride. A SAG Cyclist will be on the trail to accommodate riders. 

Participants can also partake in a casual 5K walk through historic downtown Wooster and visit OneEighty's Main Office and Recovery Club.

Check-in: 6:30am-10am

8am:                    70 mile Bike Ride

Description of the course: This route will wind you through many beautiful country roads with steep challenging climbs and gorgeous views of Ohio Amish country.  The total elevation gain is over 5000 feet with multiple grades of 10 to 15%. This ride is recommended for experienced, fit riders who are up for a challenge.  There are three rest stops along the way with hydration, fuel and bathrooms staffed with friendly volunteers.  Come prepared for small sections of gravel and/or chip and seal and some cracked pavement as roads down here see a lot of different traffic, from buggies to tractors to milk trucks.  You will need to be on the lookout for all of the above, but you will be rewarded with a delicious lunch and great memories after the ride.

8:15am:               50 Mile Bike Ride

Description of the course: With an elevation gain of almost 3000 ft and some long, steep climbs with double digit grades, this route is for experienced riders who have been riding regularly and are used to open road adventures.  You will tour Ohio’s beautiful rolling Amish country and will likely need to be careful passing buggies on your way.  There are two fully stocked aid stations with hydration, fuel and bathrooms staffed by friendly volunteers.  There may be multiple sections of chip and seal and small sections of gravel to traverse, you never quite know down here, so please come prepared!  Delicious lunch afterward is included.

9:30* am:              24 Mile Bike Ride       *Note change in start time from previous years    

Description of the course: With an elevation gain of under 1000 ft. and two short, but steep climbs, this is a more gentle ride through the back roads of Wayne County.  It is still open road, so riders will need to deal with traffic and other road hazards, but will be amply rewarded with bucolic scenery, a fully stocked aid station halfway through and a great afternoon of exercise and camaraderie, followed by a delicious lunch!
