"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 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.




The Poker Ride, originally scheduled for May 16th, has been rescheduled for Saturday September 26th!







The SCBC April membership meeting has been canceled due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Adopt-a- highway is also canceled for April. It will be rescheduled for a date to be chosen in May.


Effective immediately

On March 20th, all scheduled club group rides are suspended until May 1st
or until further notice due to the coronavirus pandemic.

We will post an April ride schedule that can be activated at any time in April
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.

John Shaeffer

FAQ

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!
