    8:30 a.m. - Oberlin Municipal Court parking lot.  Ace Hardware - 55 miles - Eric Weaver, Rick Wells and Rob Hipskind leaders

    Description - First day of a three day camping ride will be about a 55 mile ride to Leafy Oaks Campground (6955 N.

    RIDE LINK -  https://ridewithgps.com/routes/20510677      

    If you are planning on camping, Eric, Rick or Rob would like your commitment as soon as possible so we can reserve camp sites next to each other (Hopefully by the fishing lake).  DEADLINE - NO LATER THAN JUNE 1st to be included with the Ride Leaders arranging the camping lot reservations.  (After June 1st, you are on your own for reservations but you can certainly ride with us.)  Costs will be communicated shortly after June 1st to each rider that is part of the Club reservation and at that time your commitment to camp is non-refundable even if we are rained out or you chose to not attend for some other reason.  Leafy Oaks has told us that they will let us put several small tents on each camping lot, so we assume our cost will be about $10 per night.

Leafy Oaks also has a cabin for rent that sleeps 5 people, but it is a 2 night stay minimum.

    Road surface will be combination of paved roads and paved trail.  We will ride by the Rutherford B Hayes Museum in Fremont http://www.rbhayes.org and have lunch in Elmore at mile 27/28.  After lunch stop at Schedule Gardens, (admission $8.00). - http://www.schedel-gardens.org.

Be sure to read all the information provided on the website so you know everything about this unique invitational ride. Hosted by the friendly members of Silver Wheels Cycling Club, Inc., you will learn for yourself why Bicycling Magazine listed "The Dog" as 'one cool ride' and why the League of American Bicyclists awarded the Silver Wheels Cycling Club Regional Club of the Year.

    Oberlin to Findley and Back

    (Self Contained Camping)


    Leaving from Oberlin Municipal Court, 38-105 miles - Ride leaders Rick Wells and Rob Hipskind


     Description - Mid-week overnight Camping Trip to Findley.  State Park.  Leave vehicles on far east end of the Municipal Court Parking lot. (We will be giving our car makes and plate numbers to the Police Department.)  There are five rides scheduled over the two days, but only the first and last legs are “required”.  The middle three rides are optional as you can simply stay at the campground and do your own thing.  


    Tentative rides:

    Wednesday at 9:00 - 18-20 miles from Ace to Findley State Park - fully packed

    Wednesday at 2:30optional - 17-20 miles back to Oberlin

    Wednesday at 5:30optional - 20-25 miles part of an All Star Ride headed south, back to Findley well before dark

    Thursday at 8:00optional - 15 miles to Spencer for Breakfast and return to Findley State Park

    Thursday at noon - 20-25 miles back to Oberlin - fully packed


    Please let Rick or Rob know as soon as possible if you plan on camping with us as we will get our group reservations in the same area.  Once you commit to going, you will be expected to share in the sunk campground costs even if you chose not to attend for reasons such as weather.  The week after our trip is Labor Day Monday so the park may be busier than usual.

    August 18th is the final cutoff to be included with the group reservation.

    After August 18th, we can try to fit you into our lot reservation but if we are at the tent capacity per site, you may end up on your own to secure a camping site. If you want to ride with us but not camp in a tent, you can try to reserve one of their three small cabins.
