Once fall and winter arrive many area bicycle clubs switch to hiking, 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. It has been a great, and interesting riding year. There was minimal snow over the winter -those who enjoyed snow shoeing and lived in the Barberton/Norton area got to travel to enjoy their sport. We enjoyed a never ending summer with record warm temperatures continuing into late October.
