USAC Logo The Orrville Cycling Club, based in Orrville, Ohio, is a USA Cycling (USAC) sanctioned club. Regular weekly rides are scheduled on Wednesday evenings at 6:00 p.m. between the beginning of Daylight Saving Time in March and it's demise in November. Post-season rides even include night time "Amish Road Rides" if weather permits. (Check the OCC Forum.) Once winter sets in, a group of members rides rollers on Wednesdays at the Orrville Cycling & Fitness bike shop.

Orrville Cycling Club Mission Statement

To promote and facilitate a fun and healthy lifestyle for all ages through cycling by:
  • Conducting regular group rides
  • Sponsoring and supporting competitive and non-competitive cycling events

Regular Season Rides

Big Red
Wednesday night club rides start at 6:15 p.m. from the Orrville Cycling and Fitness bike shop. Rides are generally organized into three groups and maps are provided for each:
  • The A group pace is fast and usually hilly with average speeds of 21 to 24 mph and flat accelerations sometimes approaching 35 mph. Sprints at city/county lines are not uncommon.
  • The B riders start out a minute later and follow a slightly shorter version of the same route. The pace is typically 18-22 mph.
  • The B- group was started for riders that want to do the same route but at a friendlier pace of 16-18 mph, with no one getting dropped.
  • The C group starts out on the shortest route at a more friendly and casual pace of 12-15 mph.
  • Finally, a Short route is in place for those that can't quite do the distances or speeds of the other routes.
Everyone ends up back at the bike shop at sunset. Maps are usually posted on the club's Facebook page on Tuesday or Wednesday. Use the Mapquest form below to get directions to the start.

Many club members are USAC licensed and participate in regional USAC races wearing the Orrville Cycling Club jersey and sponsored by the businesses you see on side bars of this webpage. In mid August the club sponsors the yearly Smith's Dairy Milk Race, a 30-50 mile circuit race in beautiful Wayne County. New events are being planned for the 2015 season - stay tuned.
