April 2019



Hi Folks,


We welcome Spring with a nice ride schedule for April and hope you will be able to join us.  At our ride planning meeting this past Tuesday we discussed some ideas for out of town rides and short trips for this summer.  If you have any suggestions, please let us know.  We should probably start making plans for these trips soon.


If you have forgotten to send in your membership fee, please do so very soon.  You may send your completed and signed membership application/renewal with your $12 check to our Treasurer, Pam Feit, 521 Grosvenor NW, Massillon 44647. The membership application can be found on our website (under “downloads”) at


Two of our members, Doug Bower and Mike Abrams lead trail rides all summer for Stark Parks.  Mike also leads a complete Towpath Trail ride.  I have attached their schedule for the summer with our April ride schedule.  These are not FOS rides but many of our members have enjoyed them so I thought I would pass this info. along to you.


The ride schedules this year will be similar to last.  Our Tuesday rides begin at 6:00 p.m. and will start at Jackson North Park.  We talked about starting at another location but for April it remains North Park, across from the big gazebo.  We will go to dinner somewhere after the ride.  Saturday rides for April will start at 10:00 a.m.  Check the attached ride schedule for the starting locations.  Sunday rides will again be on the trails.  Rides start at 2:00 p.m.  Check schedule for start location.


If you have ANY questions about a ride, please call your ride leader.  If the weather is questionable you must call the ride leader to see if the ride will be canceled.  Canceling a ride is up to the ride leader and it will be each rider’s responsibility to confirm that the ride will go on as scheduled.  PLEASE, if you have doubts, check with the ride leader!


Warm regards,
