Join 300 bicyclists for a cruise along the Maumee River and nearby towns in low-traffic, nearly flat northwest Ohio. Well-marked routes, SAG support, and thoroughly stocked rest stops will make your ride a pleasure. Finish with a box lunch — and even a beer, if you like at the Whitehouse Inn just a block from the finish line.

MARR 2021 FEATURES

** Box lunch from the historic Whitehouse Inn. Dine under the tent or take it with you.

** BEER or soft drink included.

** Choose from four different routes, including a gravel route.

** All Covid-19 Safety Guidelines will be followed.


Experience Northwest Ohio like never before!

With miles of flat roads ahead, we know how you love to put your head down and just GO! So we've straightened out the routes and expanded the geographic area. With luck, you'll catch an awesome tailwind!

Routes will take cyclists on good roads along the scenic Maumee River, as well as inland for magnificent and expansive country views. Pedal through quaint small towns and beautiful parkland. SAG support along all routes, and rest stops offering tasty snacks. 

After the ride, pick up your box lunch at the historic Whitehouse Inn. Enjoy a beer (or soft drink) under the tent with your friends, or take your lunch with you to enjoy later.

GRAVEL OPTION We've added dirt to the ride!! Gravel riders will ride the tow path, following the remains of the Miami and Erie Canal. Ride past The Volunteer, a working replica of one of the old canal barges. Meet Molly and Sally, the mules who tow The Volunteer through the manually operated locks. And take a few minutes to explore the historic Isaac Ludwig Mill.

Gravel riders will share one riverside rest stop with road riders along the way and return for lunch via the South Fork of the Wabash Cannonball trail.


** Some sections of the trail are very rough. MTB or fat tires recommended! **


Camping Contact Metroparks Toledo for a spot at White Oak Campground in Oak Openings Preserve. The campground is three miles from the ride start.


Hotels The nearest hotel to Whitehouse is The Staybridge Suites located at The Shops at Fallen Timbers, 2300 Village Dr, Maumee, OH, approximately seven miles (a straight shot down the bicycle path) from the ride start.


Dreading a long, stinky drive home? Never fear! We've got you covered there, too. Post-ride showers available until 5:00pm at Cyclewerks! (Bring your own soap and towel).
