Hill ‘N’ Dale Hundred is Saturday, October 26! Here is some information to help you plan for the ride.
For the ride map and cue sheet pdf., click here.
For the GPS route link, click here.
We recommend that you review the map/cue sheet/gps link prior to the ride. As you will notice, there is only two potential water stops along the route (one water fountain, and one natural spring) so come prepared as always. The terrain of this 63 mile ride is as challenging as it is scenic. Stay within your comfort zone and you will have an amazing day riding your bike through the country!
The ride departs from Pleasant Hill Lake Park at 9:30 AM. We will be there early to answer any questions, hand out ride maps, and to sell ride t-shirts ($20/shirt). While everyone will finish the ride at different times, we encourage you to hang out for post ride drinks, and food. We will bring some drinks, dogs, and snacks, but feel free to bring something tasty to share!
We will be camping at Pleasant Hill Lake Park on Friday and Saturday night. Let us know if you will be around.
We still have some sizes of Salsa Vaya bikes available for a rental fee of $75. Email us for more info, firstname.lastname@example.org

This is a “choose your own adventure” ride organized to bring together a group of like-minded cyclists to ride some of the most beautiful terrain in Ohio. Everyone willing to take on the journey will be given a map and a cue sheet. We encourage folks to participate in any way they would like, whether that is riding with the group, or tackling the ride with a friend. There is no sag for this ride. The adventure lies within the challenge of navigating the route, conquering the terrain, and supporting yourself with the supplies you need to complete the ride.
What: A 100K (approx. 62 mile) bicycle ride on remote paved (60%) and gravel (40%) roads, rolling 6,500 ft. over hills and through valleys, surrounding Mohican State Park in Ashland and Holmes County.
When: 9:30 AM Saturday, October 26
Where: We start the ride from the parking lot in Pleasant Hill Lake Park.
To Bring: A bike that can handle plenty of paved and gravel roads, a lot of water (there will be very limited opportunities to re-fill water along the route), snacks to refill your belly along the way, tools to fix any potential mechanicals, and a good attitude for a day to be spent with new and old friends.
Demo Bikes Available! Want to do this ride, but lack a machine that can handle some gravel, or is not idealy suited for long stretches of paved road? We have just released a demo bike rental program for this very purpose! We have a size run of Salsa Vaya 2's that are ideal for all-purpose gravel and road riding in our region that, for $75, you can rent from us for the day. For more information, simply e-mail us at email@example.com

How did you spend your rainy Sunday? Cyclocross nerds from the Ohio Valley, Indiana, and Kentucky regions came flooding down the road, with the rain, to Miamiville for a long time favorite cyclocross event, Gun Club CX. The radar did not lie. For most of the day we received light to heavy rain which quickly changed the vibrant green grassy course into a slushy, slippery, mud pit. This is what we like about cyclocross. The fun lies within the accomplishment of riding a challenging section of the course without crashing, or simply the camaraderie of a group of strangers working together to pull a fellow participants/spectators car out of the mud. We hope everyone had as much fun in the mud as the little kid pictured above.
