This is one of the more popular and well attended rides. It’s a different route each week in Ohio, Indiana, or Kentucky. We like scenic roads and riding in new areas. The rides are posted on the Cincinnati Ride Line email list, usually on Thursdays. We ride most every Sunday on various routes, and we use this ride site to plan the rides. 

Cancellation Policy: Rain or below freezing temperatures cancels the ride. Call or email the ride leader if you have questions.
