Stark County Bicycle Club
"Bicyclists fare best when they act and are treated as drivers of vehicles."
County Bicycle Club (the "SCBC"), located in Canton, Ohio, was formed
The Club has grown to 341
members, and offers the most robust and diversified ride schedule in
all of Ohio.
In 2019, Club members logged 273,040 miles over the course
of 1573 rides.
More early years of the Spokin'Word are now on line.
Dave Cardarella has scanned the paper copies creating pdf files.
The Spokin'Word web page has been reorganized.
Select Year and then Month to view the desired newsletter.
The Poker Ride, originally scheduled for May 16th,
has been rescheduled for Saturday September 26th!
Adopt-a- highway has been rescheduled for Saturday June 13th!
Start time 8:00 am from the North Lot of Al Leno Park (aka Alpine Park).
Due to safety for all, we will not offer coffee and snacks.
We will request everyone wear gloves( we provide as always) or bring your own.
We also have some long handle pincher/ pickers provided by ODT.
So please don’t be afraid to help out. We need YOU!
And YOU know you want a reason to get out of the house!
We will practice social distancing ( oh how I dislike that term) and I will sign for
everyone so no need to touch a shared pen or clipboard.
No worries, see you then.
The SCBC May membership meeting has been canceled due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
All scheduled club group rides are suspended until further
notice due to the coronavirus pandemic.
We have created a May ride schedule and are creating a June ride schedule.
These can be activated should the situation merit that change.
Be safe and well and do continue to ride solo or with a family member.
This has been a very difficult decision for your leadership to arrive at,
but our member safety and well being must come first.

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions
Ride Altitude Gain Data Collection
You will need an altimeter cyclometer or a GPS with barometric altimeter and about 5 min. of time each ride.
We will be averaging all the data on each ride so recording data on the same ride two or more times is helpful!
The more data we collect, the more accurate the results! Record the total Altitude Gain & any comments.
When you get at least ten rides recorded, give or send them to me.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!
