Sean, our latest bicycle touring visitor, arrived at the Century Cycles store in Peninsula on Monday, April 29, 2019 on his Surly Disc Trucker. He left his home in Taos, New Mexico about three weeks earlier, and is headed east to visit family in his former home of Maine. Good luck and have fun, Sean!

Ohio Trail Shuttle can help you plan your trip on the Ohio to Erie Trail


Mr. & Mrs. Brian Peters stopped by to visit the Century Cycles store in Peninsula earlier this week. They are the proprietors of Ohio Trail Shuttle, a relatively new business based in the Columbus, Ohio area. They can help you if you are planning a bicycle trip on the Ohio to Erie Trail.

The Ohio to Erie Trail is a 326-mile bicycle route connecting Cincinnati and Cleveland using a combination of paved and unpaved bike trails and roads. There are many resources available along the way for food and lodging, including both hotels and camping.

You can make arrangements with Ohio Trail Shuttle to, for example, pick you up in Cleveland and drive you and your bicycle to start your bike tour in Cincinnati. Or, you can pedal from Cleveland to Cincinnati, and they will pick you up at the end of your trip and drive you back to Cleveland. You can also come up with custom trips; just talk to them about your needs!
