The Event

Toledo Area Bicyclists is excited to bring you the 30th running of the rally!

TAB runs this event to raise funds for the club, enabling it to pursue its mission. TAB loves a good bike ride and the rally is an opportunity to come together and ride, to meet other members we might not normally see, to spend time with riders from far flung areas and to have a great time outside.

The 30, 60, and 100 Mile Rides

They're back for this year, 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 30-mile course takes riders out to Grand Rapids and back. The 60-mile course travels to Napoleon and back. Finally, the 100-mile course goes all the way to Defiance and back. Each route crosses the Maumee and directs riders downriver eventually crossing to the north side for the return to a finish in Whitehouse. There 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 Fat Bike. 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. 

Hang Out!

The organizers for MARR want to extend an invitation to all its members this year. Can't ride for some reason? Can't volunteer either? Well, come on out and have lunch with your fellow club members and friends! The pavilion is a great place to hang out for a bite to eat and drink, and a great chance to brag, I mean, update others on what you've accomplished so far!

This year we won't be having an official "Family Ride" but the trail is still there. Feel free to come on out for a little ride with the family, then come on over to the pavilion. Grab a bite, a beer, and hang out. Generals Ice Cream shop is still there, as well as the playground.

Lunch and a Cold One

This year we have invited a couple of food trucks out to the event: Antojitos Laredo Tacos and Koral Hamburger

Earnest Brew will be sponsoring our beer garden again this year and will be open until 4 pm.

Each rider will receive a ticket to use at either food truck. The first $10 of each rider's order is on us! 

Replenish and refuel!

Also, each rider will get 1 free drink: beer or pop. Water will be provided.
