100 riders. 101 miles.
In the Ohio & Erie Canalway Coalition's largest fundraiser of the year, more than 100 bicyclists raise money for the continued development of the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail, connector trails, and public spaces. In one or two days, bicyclists travel 101 miles along the Towpath Trail, gathering donations and pledges as they train before the ride. The boutique ride is fully-supported with lunch spots, healthy food and water stops, trailblazer support, personalized jerseys, and more.

The fundraiser began in 2009 with 17 bicyclists who raised $22,000 for the organization. The event has grown exponentially in the time since, raising more than $1 million throughout its history. The ride has attracted cyclists from across the country (and across the pond) interested in experiencing the Ohio & Erie Canalway National Heritage Area and supporting the worthy cause.
