    • Mohican MTB Trail, Loudonville OH

    TAB’s Summer of Stupid (SOS)

    Ride schedule is done and looks good but, subject to change due to weather and trail conditions.

    A link to the final routes will be published prior to the date. You are responsible for your own navigation. Most of these rides are hard and need to be done at your own pace. I personally go downhill fast but, not so much on the uphill and I don't expect everyone to wait on me. Prior to the ride please download the latest route information.

    Be prepared for your own repairs; extra tubes, multi tool, missing link, co2 or pump, charged cell phone, snacks, water and some extra cash are great to pack. I won’t leave anyone behind but, we will be getting into some remote locations and might take some time to get back to you.

    Complete 6 of these 8 rides and you will receive a cool survivors plaque at the end of season party.

    One of the friendliest rides around, you ll enjoy seeing and meeting families, women s groups, regional cycling clubs, and tandem pairs who tell us they love our routes because they are so tandem friendly. There are wide open spaces, clean country air, friendly people and lots of great food.

    There is plenty to explore, experience and eat. Amishland and Lakes is famous for great SAG food (watermelons, peaches, blueberries, bananas, fresh baked cookies and more), and there are also Amish bakeries, restaurants and homemade ice cream parlors along the route.

    The routes range from 22 to 100 miles, offering smooth, quiet roads, where buggies are numerous and cars are few (both days begin and end at the High School). We also offer directions for a do-it-yourself Friday option to ride the Pumpkinvine Nature Trail.

    2019 Introduction to Gravel Series

    Created by: Nate Burks

    Sat. April 6—Sat. October 5, 2019

    Location: Various, see description

    Welcome to the 2019 Gravel Series. If you are an experienced gravel rider, read to the end for pre-ride and bonus ride information. If you are new to gravel, this series is designed to take you from short and flat to long and hilly over the course of ten rides. These are "no rider left behind" rides with frequent regrouping.

    There are many advantages to riding roads less traveled. Riding gravel is a great way to increase leg strength and endurance. You are guaranteed to see fewer cars. We will encounter roads with varying terrain, hills, the occasional closed road or bridge, and sometimes dogs and livestock. You will never be bored.

    What to bring:
    -A positive attitude. There will be times when we are suffering. Suffering ain't so bad when in the right mindset.
    -Helmet
    -Eye protection
    -Gravel bike with 30mm+ tires, 29er, or fatbike. Road bikes are not suitable for these roads. 
    -Bike computer with the current week's route loaded
    -Snacks, gels, or other nutrition 
    -Water, at least two bottles or a hydration pack for longer routes
    -Lights: rear blinky required, front suggested for fog and rain
    -Tools, flat repair kit 
    -Headlight and/or helmet light for rides that begin before sun-up or will last after sun down
    -Change of clothes for after the ride (in case things get messy)

    Find the the routes (01 through 10) and dates below. All rides depart at 9am.

    If you are an experienced gravel rider or have a high level of fitness and fortitude, there will be a preride departing at 7am for rides in April through August. This will get you ready for the next level, the bonus rides in September and October. The bonus rides are much more difficult, both in distance and terrain. There are steep, long climbs and equally steep descents that will challenge your bike handling abilities. We will encounter all forms of gravel, from the smooth packed stuff from Michigan to the chunky and sometimes loose gravel around Mohican.

    Find the the bonus routes and dates below. All rides depart at 7am.

    DETAILS

    The Tour de Donut is a unique bicycle event, where your ability to eat donuts is just as important as your ability to ride your bicycle fast. The event is a mass start timed bicycle "ride" where riders visit donut stops. For each donut the rider eats during the ride (and keeps down) they have 5 minutes deducted from their ride time. The ride is just like any other bike tour, except we have donuts. 1000 dozen. Donut stops are also stocked with bananas, local in season apples, other local fruit, yogurt, water, electrolyte drink and milk.

    Kid’s Events: 8:00 am 
    Thanks to Orthopedic Associates of Southwest Ohio in Greenville, this is a free event.
    Registration begins at 7am in the tent at the start/finish line
    Kids from 2 to 12 are welcome to participate Kids will line up by age group and ride a half block for the youngest and two blocks for the older kids. Each age group will start after the other finishes for safety and will ride through the start/finish line area though thousands of cheering fans.
    All roads are closed to traffic
    All Kids must wear a helmet
    We will have 25 new kids helmets to give away
    The first 120 kids will receive a Tour de Donut T-shirt. All kids will receive a custom finishers medal and all the donuts and milk they care to eat.

    KIDS-
    We are a cycling family and understand the different stages of kid cyclist. We would enjoy having as many kids as possible in our fun event. Parents should determine if their child is ready for the open roads or should do the kids events that take place prior to the main event start. 
    Riders alone on their own bikes must be experienced on open roads and can we escorted by a registered parent. 
    Tag a longs with a child stoker are welcome in the tandem classes as long as there is a child or sto-kid on the back.
    Bike trailers are permitted. We would encourage you just to register the person on the bike... not the people in the trailer. Kids in trailers must have parental permission/release form signed and wear a helmet. If you do bring a bike trailer, we encourage you to start farther to the back of the pack at the starting line. This gives those that are generally quicker on the start to get going as trailers tend to take a little longer to get up to speed.

    If you have a trailer/tag-a-long that is a single wheel with pedals. We encourage you to register in the Tandem Division. The second rider does need to register in these cases so they can get a shirt etc.

    Tips

    The Tour De Donut is unique due to the donut eating aspect of the ride. While 50% of participants eat no donuts, below are some tips for those interested in competative eating.

     Tip #1

    Set a goal for how many you can eat and stick to it !

    Other Riders (OR): This is true with anything, including eating. Remember to set a realistic goal. Most of us can’t eat a dozen donuts.
    Competitive Eater (CE): To set a realistic goal, I like to practice eating the actual food in a set amout of time to get an idea of how I’ll fair against other eaters.

     Tip #2

    Eat 2/3 of your goal at the first stop (i.e. goal of 21, eat at least 14 at the first stop)
    OR: Very true! Most riders felt this was dead on.
    CE: I’ll be using the ¾ rule. A goal of 20, 15 at the first stop and at least 5 at the second stop.

    Tip #3

    Pick up as many donuts as you can and start eating them .Once you have committed and taken a bite, you will make yourself finish.
    OR: Most riders I spoke to like to eat in sets of 3 or 4 and not in each hand.
    CE: I’ll use the 1/3 rule here. If your goal is to eat 12 at the first stop then eat in increments of 4.

    Tip #4

    Drink enough water to keep your throat moist, but not too much.
    OR: Very true again!
    CE: Try flavoring your water with something that isn’t sweet. Mixing up the flavors will help get down those extra donuts.

    Tip #5

    Eat fast. There is a delay in the stomach telling your brain that it is full. The longer the breaks between bites, the more time for your stomach to start screaming!

    OR: Most riders had mixed feelings about this one. Eat at a pace which is comfortable for you.
    CE: This one I don’t agree on. Eat efficiently, not fast. The more you chew up the food, the more digestable it becomes, and the less space it takes up in the stomach. The body is very smart. Your not going to fool it by eating fast.

    Tip #6
    At least one week prior, stretch the stomach. One way is forcing yourself to chug water. Kobayashi (the hot dog eating champ) will force himself to chug a gallon of water in less than 2 minutes every morning! 

    OR: Most think it’s best to eat a large meal the night before. Maybe something high in carbs.
    CE: I agree on stretching the stomach before competition. However, water is not a good choice. And definitly not a gallon. I use a liquid that contains electrolites such as gatorade. Drinking large amounts of water is very risky and can lead to water intoxication

    Location: Various, see description

    Welcome to the 2019 Gravel Series. If you are an experienced gravel rider, read to the end for pre-ride and bonus ride information. If you are new to gravel, this series is designed to take you from short and flat to long and hilly over the course of ten rides. These are "no rider left behind" rides with frequent regrouping.

    There are many advantages to riding roads less traveled. Riding gravel is a great way to increase leg strength and endurance. You are guaranteed to see fewer cars. We will encounter roads with varying terrain, hills, the occasional closed road or bridge, and sometimes dogs and livestock. You will never be bored.

    What to bring:
    -A positive attitude. There will be times when we are suffering. Suffering ain't so bad when in the right mindset.
    -Helmet
    -Eye protection
    -Gravel bike with 30mm+ tires, 29er, or fatbike. Road bikes are not suitable for these roads. 
    -Bike computer with the current week's route loaded
    -Snacks, gels, or other nutrition 
    -Water, at least two bottles or a hydration pack for longer routes
    -Lights: rear blinky required, front suggested for fog and rain
    -Tools, flat repair kit 
    -Headlight and/or helmet light for rides that begin before sun-up or will last after sun down
    -Change of clothes for after the ride (in case things get messy)

    Find the the routes (01 through 10) and dates below. All rides depart at 9am.

    If you are an experienced gravel rider or have a high level of fitness and fortitude, there will be a preride departing at 7am for rides in April through August. This will get you ready for the next level, the bonus rides in September and October. The bonus rides are much more difficult, both in distance and terrain. There are steep, long climbs and equally steep descents that will challenge your bike handling abilities. We will encounter all forms of gravel, from the smooth packed stuff from Michigan to the chunky and sometimes loose gravel around Mohican.

    Find the the bonus routes and dates below. All rides depart at 7am.

    The Gravel Grinder is a gravel road race like nothing you can imagine.
    It is limited to 2000 riders.
    The Gravel Grinder is essentially three races in one. The Easy 18 mile race is flat and easy, a great race for beginners or even the kids in the family. The Fast 40 mile race is a gravel race best suited for Cross bikes. The seasonal roads have been removed for this route. Expect lots of fast gravel mixed with some tough climbs. The Sadistic 60 mile race is for the person who wants a true challenge. You get five monster climbs, lots of fast gravel roads, multiple sections of tough seasonal roads which have sand, mud and rocks and also a white knuckle descent. Whatever bike/tire you choose it will be the wrong one at some point. This route will test your mental sanity.

    Location: Various, see description

    Welcome to the 2019 Gravel Series. If you are an experienced gravel rider, read to the end for pre-ride and bonus ride information. If you are new to gravel, this series is designed to take you from short and flat to long and hilly over the course of ten rides. These are "no rider left behind" rides with frequent regrouping.

    There are many advantages to riding roads less traveled. Riding gravel is a great way to increase leg strength and endurance. You are guaranteed to see fewer cars. We will encounter roads with varying terrain, hills, the occasional closed road or bridge, and sometimes dogs and livestock. You will never be bored.

    What to bring:
    -A positive attitude. There will be times when we are suffering. Suffering ain't so bad when in the right mindset.
    -Helmet
    -Eye protection
    -Gravel bike with 30mm+ tires, 29er, or fatbike. Road bikes are not suitable for these roads. 
    -Bike computer with the current week's route loaded
    -Snacks, gels, or other nutrition 
    -Water, at least two bottles or a hydration pack for longer routes
    -Lights: rear blinky required, front suggested for fog and rain
    -Tools, flat repair kit 
    -Headlight and/or helmet light for rides that begin before sun-up or will last after sun down
    -Change of clothes for after the ride (in case things get messy)

    Find the the routes (01 through 10) and dates below. All rides depart at 9am.

    If you are an experienced gravel rider or have a high level of fitness and fortitude, there will be a preride departing at 7am for rides in April through August. This will get you ready for the next level, the bonus rides in September and October. The bonus rides are much more difficult, both in distance and terrain. There are steep, long climbs and equally steep descents that will challenge your bike handling abilities. We will encounter all forms of gravel, from the smooth packed stuff from Michigan to the chunky and sometimes loose gravel around Mohican.

    Find the the bonus routes and dates below. All rides depart at 7am.
