    The current situation has affected us all and it has been a challenging spring for everyone. The COVID-19 pandemic brings with it the uncertainty of what to expect this summer. While MARR is still several months out, the planners of the event had to make some very difficult decisions now.

    We want to bring our members and the bicycling community the best possible experience. With the health and safety of the riders and our generous volunteers in mind, your MARR team and the TAB board of directors have decided to cancel MARR 2020, previously scheduled for August 8.

    If you’ve already registered, your fees will be returned to you.

    We appreciate your understanding and support while safely waiting to resume to a time when we can all be together. Watch for news and updates on our website and our Face Book pages.

    Our best wishes to you and your families. Stay healthy.

    -Nancy Beeman, MARR Chair

    This virus situation is a stark contrast to just a month ago when we held what would be the final Winter Warrior Challenge ride of the season. I am really missing the comraderie and adventures. And the prize drawings. Let's face it, it was really cool to win a pint glass with the blue bearded face of one of my favorite dudes on it. Speaking of Justin, he and I are offering up a challenge to you all with a weekly prize drawing. We want to encourage folks to ride safely, avoiding COVID-19, and help to avoid the COVID-19 pound weight gain. Each Friday I'll post the challenge of the week. Complete the challenge and take a selfie as proof (rules below). Winner will be announced on the following Sunday morning.

    For the folks who are sheltering in place or self-isolating, indoor rides count too. Take a selfie on your trainer wearing a mask and helmet.

    The first challenge is predictable: Ride to a bike shop. The more bike shops you visit, the more entries you earn. Justin has some Fabric goodies as the first weekly prize.

    Here are the rules:

    1. Ride alone or with a housemate.

    2. Take a selfie at one or more of the landmarks for the week.

    3. You must be wearing a mask or other face covering with your bike and the landmark in the background.

    4. Each selfie at an additional landmark counts as an additional entry for the week.

    5. Share publicly to Facebook or Instagram with #ridesafe419. If not on social media, send your selfie to ridesafe419@gmail.com.

    6. Winner will be drawn on the following Sunday morning.

    Please share with friends or anyone you know who is not on social media. Ride safe, ride alone while riding together, and always have fun!

    You can earn additional entries if there is something notable about your ride (like riding in the rain or at night) or by paying it forward by purchasing a gift card or donating a prize for the following week. Hooking us up with local businesses that would like to participate gets you an entry as well.

    Please share with friends or anyone you know who is not on social media. Ride safe, ride alone while riding together, and always have fun!

    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:
