Toledo Area Bicyclists is happy to bring you the 29th running of the rally. This event serves to raise funds for the support of the club, enabling it to pursue its mission. Ask anyone; TAB loves a good bike ride. We also like giving back to the community we live in. This year we will make a donation to Partners for Clean Streams. Without them, the Mighty Maumee wouldnâ€™t be such a beautiful place to spend time.
The 31, 61, and 102-Mile Ride
This year we will be running all routes along the Mighty Maumee. Starting in Whitehouse, Ohio, riders will bike to the river crossing in Waterville and continue upriver on the south side. Riders will get to enjoy the view as they travel the gently rolling countryside. The 31-mile course takes riders out to Grand Rapids and back. The 61-mile course travels to Napoleon and back. Finally, the 102-mile course goes all the way to Defiance and back. Each route crosses the Maumee and directs riders downriver on the north side to a finish in Whitehouse where everyone will enjoy lunch and a frosty beverage celebrating their accomplishment.
Gravel Ride (32 miles)
Asphalt too clean for you? Bring your gravel bike, MTB, or if you really want a challenge, Fat Bike rig. Riders will traverse the Tow Path out to Providence Dam for a quick photo op, then turn around to access the rest stop before continuing back to the start.
The Family Ride
Want to enjoy the festivities without putting up double digit miles? Maybe a nice cruise on the bike path with the kids? Or maybe you want to take it easy and then hang out with friends afterwards? Come on out around 11 am and try this 2.5 mile route winding through Whitehouse and around the quarry. Each rider/participant will get lunch and a drink. Add on a few more miles up the Wabash if you like, then decompress with lunch. The playground is right next door. Or visit Generals Ice Cream!
