"Bicyclists fare best when they act and are treated as drivers of vehicles."   --J. Forester--

The Stark County Bicycle Club (the "SCBC"), located in Canton, Ohio, was formed in 1968.
The Club has grown to 309 members, and offers the most robust and diversified ride schedule in all of Ohio.
In 2017, Club members logged 273,969 miles over the course of 1515 rides.

Club Merchandise Changes

After many years of handling club merchandise, Elaine Snively expressed a desire to pass this function
on to another member of the club. Since no one was forthcoming to assume this position, we have
accepted an offer from Ernie's Bicycle Shops to handle our merchandise going forward. Anyone wishing
to purchase a club jersey, jacket, mirror or logo socks may do so at Ernie's Lake Avenue Bicycle Shop in
Massillon. For questions on merchandise availability, members may contact Debbie Lehman at 330-832-
5111 or visit the Lake Ave shop at 135 Lake Ave NW, Massillon, Ohio. Yes, you will be able to use club
gift certificates when purchasing club merchandise. No, non-club members will not be eligible to
purchase our club merchandise. Yes, you will be charged sales tax when purchasing club merchandise
going forward. Keep in mind we are selling our merchandise at wholesale prices. You would not be able
to purchase any of these items at a comparable price anywhere else.

I will be handling the sale of small ticket items going forward. This would include items such as logo
towels, map cue sheet holders, mouse pads, bandanas, clear plastic wallets, license plate frames, etc. I
will be bringing these items to meetings where they will be available for purchase. No sales tax will be
charged on these items. Questions? Call or e-mail me - I'm in the Spokin' Word or in the member
directory on the SCBC site.

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.
