County Bicycle Club (the "SCBC"), located in Canton, Ohio, was formed
The Club has grown to 408
members, and offers the most robust and diversified ride schedule in
all of Ohio.

Ohio Bicycle Federation Summit
Stark County Bicycle Club will be attending the 2nd annual Ohio Bicycle Federation Summit at the Statehouse in Columbus on Tuesday, February 23, 2016.
We have reserved a table to display our support for pending legislation to enact a 3 ft. safe passing law for motorist when encountering cyclists on Ohio roadways.
We are attempting to set up appointments with State Representatives Kirk Schuring and Christina Hagan, and with State Senator
Scott Oelslager to lobby for both the 3 ft Safe Passing Law and for improved biking and hiking infrastructure within Ohio.
All SCBC members are welcome to attend this Summit which is held in the Statehouse Atrium. Both branches of Ohio's legislators will be in session
on this date and will be passing through the Atrium on their way to and from their offices and their respective meeting chambers.
Additionally there will be a number of other Ohio bicycle clubs and cycling advocacy groups
with display tables in the Atrium, and various speakers will be featured throughout the day.
Food and drink are available within the Statehouse at Milo's Capital Cafe. There will be ample opportunity to tour our State Capitol building
where much of Ohio's rich history is on display. Why not make a day of it and join us in supporting cycling within our great state.

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!
