Event description
LoST on the North Coast Inland Trail - Lorain County, Ohio - Elyria to Kipton

About this Event

Long or Short Trail Tour - your choice! 30 or 14 total miles - 95% bikeway.

How LoST Tours work. The long group starts an hour earlier and joins up with the short group, where both groups ride to the tasty midway stop, refresh, and then ride back together to the short group's starting spot from where the long group finishes riding back to their starting spot.

Route runs from Elyria through Oberlin to Kipton, Ohio.

Points of interest: Oberlin Train Depot, farms, fields, 'forests', wildlife. "Park staff routinely mows trail edges and intersections along the route and keep the trail clear. Visitors can expect not only a clean and safe trip but also some glimpses of wildlife along the way". (http://metroparks.cc/north_coast_inland_trail.php)

And a very tasty midway stop! (RSVP for details)

IMPORTANT! CycleNuts tours are limited to 50 attendees. Please RSVP at the provided Meetup link within 3 days to redeem your ticket and hold your spot on this tour.

CycleNuts is an alternative cycle touring experience where seeing and socializing take emphasis over speed and (ugh!) sweat. Join along on bike-way touring adventures to destinations near and far. Expect a slow pace under 11 mph average with CycleNuts 50% downhill guarantee. Sweating is optional. Pictures, merriment, and other touring activities encouraged.

The goal of CycleNuts is to encourage casual cyclists and cyclists interested in casual social cycling to get together and ride.

The vision of CycleNuts is to create a society of cyclists who ride at casual social speeds for the cause of fun, exercise, cycling awareness in the community, cycle-touring, and producing lots of good memories and smiles.

CycleNuts Tours in a Nutshell: All skills levels are welcome. Helmets are not mandatory. CycleNuts tours give preference to bicycle trail routes. Tours may begin and end or drop in midway at a point of interest serving food and refreshment. The speed will be at a comfortable casual class E (for easy everybody) pace determined ‘comfortable’ to fit those attending. Nobody is dropped, abandoned, or left to fend for their self (unless they wish to be). A tour may split midway to accommodate riding speeds and schedules of attendees.

SAG-free: CycleNuts tours are self-supported with only the slightest of guidance, including travel and over-night accommodations. 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. State in comments if interested in forming a carpool, caravan, or sharing overnight or travel accommodations.

Recommended Gear: A cycle (uni, bi, tri, tandem, cycle/trailer rig, or E-bike). Front and rear lighting. Communication device. Spare tube or patch kit. Water. Energy bar. Air pump and wrench kit. Cycle lock. Funds for refreshment breaks. Warm and weather protective clothing – including protection for feet, hands, head, and face for the colder seasons. Lotions, such as sun screen and insect repellent.

Recommended Preparation: Always check your brakes, tire pressure, and lights prior to any tour. Routes may include bicycle trails, dedicated bicycle lanes on streets, bicycle ‘friendly’ streets, and at times of necessity, regular streets, parking lots, sidewalks, and dirt paths. We may experience darkness on evening or early morning rides as the days grow shorter. As well, consider what you are wearing and what you may need for changing weather conditions such as heat, cold, rain, sleet, and/or snow during a riding event.

Yes – CycleNuts will offer cycling events in all four seasons – what else could be expected from CycleNuts?
