About this Event

This tour celebrates CycleNuts' 5th Anniversary aboard the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad in N.E. Ohio.

On the CVSR Bike Aboard our bikes get loaded with us for a scenic train ride through Cuyahoga Valley National Park. At the end of the line we depart to a nearby spot for tasty bites and beverages. And then we bike back to the starting station.

Our 27 mile return ride is along the historic Ohio-Erie canal on the towpath trail, which is mostly crushed stone (messy but hard enough for road bike tires). Those that cannot make the whole 27 mile return ride have the option of flagging down the train at several stops along the towpath trail ($5/per person/bike).

Train ride is paid at time of loading - $5 - arrive early - train leaves at 11:00 AM sharp!

Points of interest: CVSR, scenic Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Ohio-Erie Canal and locks, Cuyahoga River, and downtown Akron.

Please keep watch for important pandemic changes/updates to this tour.*Corona Pandemic Mask Policy: CycleNuts Mask Policy is the same as the Helmet Policy - not mandatory. Please, no helmet or mask shaming. It is the preference of the individual to wear or not to. **Be aware - large metropolis areas are mandating mask use in public areas with fines and/or other penalties as enforcement.

In a nutshell - CycleNuts is an alternative cycle touring experience where seeing and socializing take emphasis over speed and (ugh!) sweat. Join along on bikeway touring adventures to destinations near and far as we strive for the

• Goal: to create bikeway touring opportunities for cyclists of all types to enjoy together

• Mission: to encourage casual cyclists and cyclists interested in casual cycling to tour together

• Vision: a united cycling community that tours together on bikeway adventures for the holistic benefit of all

What to expect - Casual social cycle touring where exercise is optional, everybody finishes together, and nobody is dropped, abandoned, or left to fend for their self (unless they wish to be). Anticipate a slow pace under 11 mph average with CycleNuts’ 50% downhill guarantee. Sweating is optional. Pictures, merriment, and other tourist activities heartily encouraged. Allow ample time for the nature of CycleNuts tours including

• Trail-side breaks

• Eating and drinking

• Picture taking and posing

• Pacing with the slowest riders

• Looking at cool stuff along the way

• And other sorts of tourist activities – as well as unforeseen detours, breakdowns, and delays of various sorts.

Helmets are not mandatory - CycleNuts tours give preference to bikeways - bicycle trails and protected bicycle lanes. Routes may include dedicated bicycle lanes on streets, bicycle ‘friendly’ streets, and of necessity, regular streets, parking lots, sidewalks, and unpaved trails. Darkness may be experienced on evening or early morning rides. Lights in good working order at all times on CycleNuts tours are a great idea – to be seen and to see!

SAG-free - CycleNuts tours, including travel and over-night accommodations, are self-supported with the slightest of guidance. SAG is not provided. Carpools and caravans are individual choices. Emergency road support – if necessary – may be a creative, collective group effort or you may need to fend for yourself. Be prepared with options.

Recommended Gear - A cycle (uni, bi, tri, tandem, E, recumbent, or cycle/trailer rig). Protective gear of your choice. ID. Front and rear lighting. Communication device. Spare tube. Patch kit. Air pump. Wrench kit. Cycle lock. Water. Energy bar. Funds for refreshment breaks and emergencies. Sun screen. Bug spray.

Recommended Preparation – Pre-check before you load that bike for transport to the starting spot.
