HOW TO JOIN TAB

The Toledo Area Bicyclists (TAB) is an organization of people who love bicycles and bicycling.  The membership is very diverse, including individuals and families, encompassing a wide range of ages and cycling ability.  The primary purpose of TAB is the promotion and encouragement of safe group cycling as a means of healthful exercise and social interaction.  Our main focus is recreational riding -- not racing -- at paces to suit most riders over a wide variety of cycling routes.

Most of our members have road or touring bikes, but you will see tandems, mountain bikes and a variety of other two-wheeled vehicles.  Our regular calendar of rides offers something for just about everyone, from slow to fast, short to long.  Periodically through the riding season, members are also encouraged to take part in rides in other states, as well as other parts of Ohio.  Some of our hardier members also ride throughout the winter months.

Our official weekday ride schedule runs from May through August, with at least one ride every day except for Fridays, at locations throughout the greater Toledo area.  Weekend rides run from April through October.  The club's Winter Warrior Challenge begins the first weekend in November and continues with a different challenging ride each Saturday through March. A super prize is awarded to the rider crowned Winter Warrior each season. With TAB, you will find new ride partners who ride at your pace.  Get help and advice on riding, clothing, equipment, touring strategy, commuting, and even fine dining everywhere.

Come on out and participate with enthusiastic cyclists who share great rides, have fun with new and old friends, make new friends, and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow cyclists.
