and used again in 2014.

Well, it is that time of year again.
Once more SCBC is handling the Cycling events for the Hall of Fame Regional SR Olympics organization.
After an exciting and extremely busy 2013-2014 hosting the Ohio State SR Olympics Cycling events,
we are back once again to the Regional Games.

Yes, the pressure of running the Games at which National Qualifiers are selected remains off,
but we still need to ramp up and do a good job running this year's Regional Games.
Soooooo, that said: we are once again looking for volunteers to help with the games on Thursday
and Friday June 9 and 10. The volunteer opportunities are pretty much the same as before.
Descriptions of all the jobs are on the SCBC website on the "Other Links: SR Olympics" tab.
If you would like to do the same job as last year, it would be fabulous.

Examples are Registration (Check-in), Set Up and Take Down, Marshals, Refreshments Coordinators,
Starters, Holders, Timers, Spotters, Recorders, Computer Operators, Photographers, Car or Motorcycle
Lead, Sweep Vehicle or Cyclist, Informal Podium Girls, and Tee-Shirt Distribution. In many cases, the
same person can do several jobs which makes for more variety and fun. Please call, text or e-mail me
to volunteer or to get additional information. I will send info to volunteers by the end of May

The cycling will be held on the same roads as before at Marlington High School near Alliance.
Headquarters will be at the Pavilion at 10115 Moulin Ave. by the Horticulture Center.
The 10 K Time Trial and 20 K Road Race will be Thursday, June 9 and
the 5 K Time Trial and 40 K Road Race will be on Friday June 10.

RACERS: The Regional Games website is You can register now to participate
in the racing at this site. Cost this year is $25. for one up to all 4 cycling events. Our Regional
Games could serve as a warmup for the State Games on June 14.

These State Games (in Springfield, OH on June 14) are where you can qualify for the Nationals to be
held in Birmingham, AL, in June 2017. At the Ohio State Games the 2 Time Trials and a 20 K Road Race
will all be offered on one day June 14. The top 4 finishers in each age group in each race will
qualify for the Nationals. Registration for this is online. Just go to

Thank you so much for the fabulous support in the past years and looking forward to your help again this year!!!

          Recent Web Site Updates
05/22/2016 May Exec and Membership Meeting minutes were added on the Spokin' Word tab.
05/20/2016 Revised Map 258. DONKEY DOUBLE starting at Molly Stark Park.
                    I imagine most club members have ridden the Donkey Double a time or two and will be interested in knowing
                    it is now starting at Molly Stark Park rather than Nimishillen School. Mileages have been added to the cue
                    replacing the need for notes such as "stay on [this road] for a long time". Several suggested food stops
                    have been added and RideWithGPS has been added. The total mileage remains at 200. I have attached the old
                    map to the new for you history buffs and for the detailed road map.
05/17/2016 Added June ride schedule on the Ride Schedule tab.
05/17/2016 Revised Map 336. HILLS TO HOMEWORTH starting at Molly Stark Park.
                    Start changed from Nimishillen School to Molly Stark Park. Some route changes. Center / Cenfield replaced
                    Bayton / Buck. The route uses Beech near the end rather than Easton in order to pass by the Beech Creek
                    Botanical Gardens. New map, elevation data, copyright, index boxes, history, traffic circle, rest stop
                    and RideWithGPS have been added. The rest stop is at the Kountry Korner in Maximo at the 32 mile mark.
                    This route is not as hilly as the name might indicate. RWGPS elevation gain is 1370 ft in 38 miles.
                    36 feet per mile.
05/15/2016 Revised Map 256. TANDEM INVITATIONAL RIDE starting at Molly Stark Park.
                    Start changed from Nimishillen School to Molly Stark Park. Rest stop added. Traffic Circle added.
05/15/2016 Revised Map 482. SAME OL LONG starting at Lake Ave Trailhead.

05/03/2016 Revised Map 441. CHEATERS RIDE starting at Petros Park.
                    25 mile ride starting at Petros Park. Route change due to Columbiana St closure in Navarre. RWGPS, elevation,
                    copyright, history, and index boxes added. No change in total mileage.

04/21/2016 added May Spokin'Word on the Spokin'Word tab.
04/19/2016 New Map 529. KAUFFMAN BAKERY RIDE II starting at Dalton Village Green Park.
                    This 50 mile, rolling to hilly, ride through scenic Wayne County leaves from Dalton Village Green Park.
                    It, like Map 524 Kauffman Bakery Ride, features a rest stop at the popular bakery in Bunker Hill near
                    Berlin. Bill Mishler originated the map. If you haven't ridden any of the Wayne Co rides from
                    Dalton Village Green Park you are definitely missing a treat! Give it a try!

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.
