Whitehouse, Ohio is fast becoming a hub for cycling in northwest Ohio. Situated on the Wabash Cannonball Trail, cyclists can ride south to the river, west to farm country, and only a short distance north to beautiful Oak Openings Metropark.
The Mad Anthony River Rally will provide all those experiences plus more as riders meander along the Maumee River and into rural Ohio on well-marked, quiet roads.
Light Traffic, Flat Roads, Support and Food! Lunch at scenic Providence Dam Metropark provides spectacular and mesmerizing views of the river. Full SAG support, rest stops approximately every 20 miles, and well-marked routes on flat roads make for a great ride.
Distances Routes of approximately 32, 50, 64, 80 and 100 miles will be available. See Texas and Florida in one day if you ride the century!
A family route of 12 miles gives riders a chance to take their kids along.
