"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 currently has 277 members, and offers the most robust and diversified ride schedule in all of Ohio.
In 2020, Club members logged 202,656 miles over the course of 1118 rides.

The SCBC Executive Board has decided that your 2020 club dues
will also cover your 2021 membership. This decision was reached
because many club events were cancelled in 2020 due to the
pandemic and the funds budgeted for those events were not spent.

If you are a paid member for 2020, you will not owe any 2021
membership dues. This includes individual and family memberships.

Note: To be a Patron Supporter for 2021, the donation is still:
              $45.00 Patron - Single Chainring Supporter
              $55.00 Patron - Double Chainring Supporter
              $75.00 Patron - Triple Chainring Supporter

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.
