Rally Rides & Training
We have a one-day ride planned on Saturday September 10th. The committee is working on the routes and mileage options – and will include a century ride option. We have four rally rides planned - join us! Get to know fellow riders and the charities – each charity supports one rally ride and all four are there for the main ride in September!
Rally rides are a great way to get ready for the big ride, especially if you aren’t used to going on long distance rides. The first rally ride has a $5 fee, the second $10, and the third $15. The fourth rally ride is a $20 fee (lunch included). ALL FEES ARE WAIVED IF YOU ARE PRE-REGISTERED FOR THE MAIN RIDE.
Every rally ride begins at 9am. Please plan to arrive about 30 minutes early to register/check-in.
#1 – Saturday, May 14 –New route this year. Since we are starting a little later in the season, we added a slightly more challenging first rally ride in May. It run's from Xenia to Corwin on the Bike Path with a rest stop in Corwin. The return is optional for riders, either all Bike Path back to Xenia OR country roads with some good ups and downs. Then returning to the Bike Path for the final 5 miles after a fun downhill on Richland Road. - Link to route
