Bringing together cyclists from all walks of life, race, creed and color to ride…to talk…to know one another and establish new and lasting relationships.  We share a passion…let’s share our friendship.


Conversations – Stories – New Friends – Shared Experiences

Over the past several years, cyclists from both the Major Taylor Cycling Club of Cincinnati and the Cincinnati Cycle Club have joined together for the Monday Night Wyoming Ride.  We have enjoyed great camaraderie and friendships have grown between respective Club members. During the pandemic year, a question was often asked: Why don’t these Cincinnati-based Clubs ride together more often (or at all)? The answer….because no one has planned a ride.  Well, that time has passed and on September 17th and 18th, 2021 our first Unity Ride will take place. Co-sponsored by the Major Taylor Cycling Club of Cincinnati, Cincinnati Cycle Club and CORA, we are coming together…to ride.

The Countryside YMCA in Lebanon has graciously offered use of their pool pavilion as Ride Central .  We have a covered pavilion with seating for several hundred riders, restrooms, changing areas and showers, paved parking for several hundred and a fenced camping area.  All dedicated to Unity Riders for Friday and Saturday.

We have two days of riding.  Friday, September 17th a casual ride is planned around the beautiful Little Miami River Valley.  For those arriving Friday, the YMCA has ample room for tent camping and more information on hotels and local overnight accommodations will be posted shortly.

A more formal All Club Ride will be launching Saturday morning September 18th, joining all local Cycling Clubs and our Major Taylor partners.  Routes from 45 to 65 miles are planned in addition to a shorter bike trail route for a more casual ride.  All routes will traverse low traffic and scenic Warren County cycling routes.   Always wanted a police escort on a ride?  We have one for you on Saturday as we depart Ride Central.  

All routes will be posted one week before the ride (this allows us to avoid all newly chip sealed routes).  Expect around 2,500 feet of gentle climbs for the 65 mile route, and 2,000 feet for the 45 mile route.  Each route will have at least one Major Taylor and one Cincinnati Cycle Club ride leader as well as SAG support.

Off-Road Mountain Bike Ride

Join CORA at the newly built Premier Health and Atrium Bike Park (Lebanon Bike Park), just a short bike ride from Ride Central.


Friday afternoon, CORA will hold a short session on off-road cycling covering the basics of bikes, equipment and where to take your bike off-road in Warren County and the surrounding area.   Saturday, join a CORA Ride Leader for an on-bike tour and casual ride at the Lebanon Bike Park. This ride is designed for beginner to intermediate riders, and will be especially suited to those wanting to explore off-road cycling for the first time.  This is your chance to ride off-road with a veteran mountain biker. This ride will take breaks as needed and stop at all trail intersections. We’ll focus on safety, learning and off-road fun, so leave the race number at home.
