Casual Trail Cycling for a Healthy Active Lifestyle
The Spin Off Cyclists Bicycle Club offers rides on the Towpath Trail and area rail trails for people of all physical abilities. The Spin-offs, founded by weight loss surgery patients, cycle for exercise, pleasure and making friends with other cyclists. We welcome people of all ages, abilities and speeds who want to cycle with a casual, slower paced group. We encourage our members to bring their families and friends on the ride. Our weekly rides include shorter, slower rides for the casual cyclist and longer, faster rides for the recreational cyclist. We offer a varierty of rides on the weekend, often to rail trails in Northeast Ohio and beyond. These rides are excellent opportunities to explore Ohio and neighboring states from a different point of view. Cycling is easier than most people imagine. It is an excellent form of exercise that yields some great benefits to your health and wellbeing. Why spend the evening or weekend in front of the TV when you can experience fresh air and nature with a fun group of people? We hope to see you on an upcoming ride! Our Mission Encourage a healthy and active lifestyle; and open the world of cycling to riders of all physical abilities in Northeast Ohio. We accomplish this through bicycle trail rides that encourage self confidence and develop the riding skills of our members while providing opportunities for fitness, fun and friendship.

Attention Towpath Trail users: According to the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, two sections of the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail will be temporarily closed beginning December 11, 2017, and continuing through June 2018. There will be no detour available. The closure is necessary for public safety while the park replaces four pedestrian bridges along the trail.
Closure locations include the section between Boston Store Visitor Center and the Interstate 271 Bridge, and also between Deep Lock Quarry and Hunt House.
There will be access both north and south from Lock 29 Trailhead to the closure locations. There will not be access to Boston Store Visitor Center from Lock 29 Trailhead during the closure.
