What is the Towpath Century Ride? 

The Huntington Towpath Century Ride, June 9 and 10 2018, is a fully-supported 101 mile ride on the historic Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail that celebrates this regional trail and promotes the development of connector trails for the regional trail system.  Riders can chose from a 1-day or 2-day ride and can participate as individuals or teams on well-maintained bicycle trails and some on-road sections.  The ride starts on the banks of the Cuyahoga River in downtown Cleveland, and travels through the beautiful Cuyahoga Valley National Park, downtown Akron, and historic canal towns of Canal Fulton and Bolivar, concluding at the southern end of the trail in New Philadelphia. 


All bicycle riders who raise $1000 in pledges receive a custom designed bicycle jersey, transportation, 3 full meals, 10 water stops with health snacks, massage therapists and SAG support for the entire ride.  Outstanding prizes and awards are presented to the top fund raising individuals and teams.

In order to guarantee your participation, register today!!


 “We love being outside and the trail is an incredible asset to the communities around us. I cannot think of a better way to support it than to use the asset itself- the trail- to raise money to help support the mission of further development along the canal.”

~Jeff Herold, PNC Bank


 "The Century Ride has provided a terrific opportunity for me to get a first-hand appreciation for our region’s history as well as the natural beauty of the Towpath trail area.  The ride is far more of a social event, with a great mix of interesting people, such that the miles go by quickly as you meet other riders.  It’s hard to imagine a fundraiser that is more enjoyable.

~Mike Kolk, Cohen and Company 


 "The organization of this ride is second to none and the money goes to the trail. That is important that the money ends up being used on the Towpath to improve this wonderful trail that has become such an asset to so many communities in this part of the state. Plus what a great way to network with other cycling enthusiasts while enjoying the outdoors!"
