Scheduled area outdoor activities in January

by Ruth Kaser for NE Ohio Tidbits for Cyclers

Once fall and winter arrive many area bicycle clubs switch to hiking,  or cross country skiing. The Stark Club is still cycling. If there is a warm day there may be an impromptu ride so check each clubs schedule and website. 2017 was a great, and interesting riding year, with record warm temperatures continuing into late October. January 2018 is coming to a close with about half of the days having 21 and below high temperatures.
