    Please careful.

    Please be safe and stay safe while riding.

    And yes, we will get through this together.

    Covid-19 Precautions and Personal Safety

    Date: March 23, 2020

    From: the TAB Board of Directors;

    TAB (Toledo Area Bicyclists) asks that our members ride with care and caution while the Covid-19 virus continues to spread and poses uncertain health risks to all of us.

    To that end, TAB is suspending all its group rides until further notice. You do not need to give up riding your bike, but, if you do ride, you are highly encouraged you do so only with people with whom you share a home. The virus does not distinguish between sanctioned and impromptu group rides; riding as part of a group is taking unnecessary and serious risk.

    The club will monitor the situation and make necessary decisions regarding resuming scheduled rides in order to mitigate the risk to membership. In the meantime, staying home is the best and safest alternative.

    Our weekend rides will not be starting April 4 and 5, as normally would be the case. But stay tuned for updates. And STAY SAFE. Let's get through this and prepare to enjoy another great season in the saddle!

    Dan Becker 

    President, Toledo Area Bicyclists

    The banquet is in the books and we now look ahead to 2020. Our new officers have been seated and 2019 awards are now sitting on members' deserving mantles. We had a good turnout with a great meal and conversation to go along with the festivities!

    Thanks also to our local shops for demos, etc!

    2019 Club Awards went to the following individuals:

    High Mileage Award (9001 miles) - Alan Frishman

    Most Improved Rider - Lindsay Rausch

    Volunteers of the Year - Mark & Nancy Beeman

    Hubert J Backes Rider of the Year - Dan Riley

    A special President's Award was presented by friend and member Alan Mikesell to Rick Rump for his years of service and dedication to the club.

    Congratulations to all the recipients and good luck to our newest board members as they take on exciting new challenges for 2020!

    The new membership year begins February 1st. Club dues help to fund everything we do; from the daily rides that hundreds attend every week to our annual Memorial Day and July 4th Freedom Rides, to our annual signature TAB event, MARR.

    Club dues benefit local and state organizations like Metroparks Toledo and the Ohio Bicycle Federation; national organizations such as the League of American Bicyclists who work on our behalf to improve cycling infrastructure, propose new legislation to help make our journeys safer, and increase overall awareness. We partner with these and other local organizations like the Maumee Valley Adventurers and The Right Direction Youth Program to expose young and old to the wonderful world of cycling.

    Your dues go back into the community as part of our effort to build a cycle-friendly region we all can enjoy. Please support TAB in our efforts and make the choice to renew or become a new member. It's quick and painless, and helps us to maintain, strengthen and build on an organization that promotes the sport we love.

    You can join or renew online at the secure link below:

    From Nate Burks:


    In the interest of rider safety, due to the current forecast of 4-8 inches of snow starting Friday night into Saturday morning we are changing the ride from Country Charm to the South Fork.

    As before, we will start in Whitehouse and ride the south fork of the Wabash-Cannonball Trail to Liberty Center. 11.8 miles each way, with approximately 7 miles unpaved. We will stop for breakfast at the 1/2way point at the Liberty Cafe.

    Fat/mountain bikes will be preferred. See the updated route below!

    Departure at 9am from Cyclewerks in Whitehouse. As always, arrive a few minutes early to sign in and be eligible to win a fabulous prize!
