Everybody Rides

 

Everybody Rides is a free bike ride for all to enjoy. It will be at a very easy pace for all to be able to participate and we will follow all traffic signals. The length of the rides will vary and will visit a variety of destinations within and outside of Findlay (see individual ride descriptions). Rides will leave from and end at the Findlay Family YMCA parking lot, 300 E Lincoln St, Findlay, OH. Rides will begin at 4 pm on Saturdays, with occasional pop-up rides on other days and times, with some rides being longer, but still at an enjoyable pace.

The rides are brought to you in partnership with Maumee Valley Adventurers, The Findlay Family YMCA and Stout Cyclery.

             

If you have a minor issue or question about your bike please show up 10 minutes before the ride and we will be glad to try and help. An air pump will be available to inflate tires.

Helmets are required for all riders. Before some rides, free helmets may be available on the day of the ride (see individual ride descriptions).
