The Heart of Ohio Tailwinds Bike Club offers two weekly rides. Helmets are mandatory, and riders must have signed a liability release. Children must be accompanied by an adult. We'd love to have you along!

Wednesday night ride: The Heart of Ohio Tailwinds no longer offers a Wednesday night ride, but a group leaves Rocky's Cyclery at 5:30 on Wednesday evenings for a fast-paced ride.
