We spend our days pouring over the very essence of what makes ours such a special sport and how that essence fits into Cycling’s colorful fabric. This is the Velominati’s raison d’etre. This is where the Velominati can be ourselves. This is our agony – our badge of honor – our sin.
I was looking for a new helmet and did a search for “best cycling helmet ” and came across In the Know Cycling. This guy is really good.

Welcome to Orrville Cycling Club. This is the fourth version of our website. The first version was hosted on Geocities.com back in 1996 when the internet was young, 486 processors were hot and you were screamin’ if you had a 14.4 baud modem. Back in those days the web address was http://www.geocities.com/yosemite/gorge/4260/siteindex.html. Now, smartphones and Facebook are a way of life. This current version of our website uses WordPress, one of the best website content management systems around. We’ll try to keep it fresh by finding and posting cycling related information that will help you to become a smarter cyclist without being bombarded with ads, unrelated minutia and other silliness. Ride safe.
