Flash - We have a new newsgroup!  

Hi Everyone, 

I talked with several people about signing up for the new newsgroup on Gaggle.  While some had seen the notice, others said they did not. I would like to encourage all members to subscribe to this replacement for our old newsgroup, which is no longer functional. The link to sign up is below:

Welcome to 2022

On January 29th, the board and officers met for our club’s annual planning meeting.  Over the course of four hours, we discussed the club’s state of affairs, looked at its financial health, and planned out the club’s 2022 year. We are all excited about this upcoming season which officially begins with our Chili Wiener Ride on March 12th.  As Covid continues to decline, we will still maintain our Covid ride protocols, but we will start to add in some of the social events we have so greatly missed.

Our club membership continues to be strong at over 300 members.  For those members who have not been riding, we encourage you to give us a try in 2022.  We have rides for all abilities from those who just want to mosey along to those who push their muscles to the limit. To learn more about riding or about being a ride leader, please attend the Ride/Ride Leader Training on Mar 5th.

The board holds meetings on the first Thursday of every month at Carlisle Visitor Center.  All are welcome to attend to see how the club works. Our general membership meetings are in March, May, July, September, and November also at Carlisle Visitor Center of the Lorain County Metroparks.  Watch the calendar for dates.  We have a program, snacks, and a chance to socialize and meet new people.  Our first meeting is March 24th and will be a safety/education program.

Our Dog Days Wine Tour Ride is on July 9th, and we’ll need some volunteers to help us with this ride.  A successful Dog Days not only gives us the funds to run the club but enables us to donate to bicycle advocacy organizations.

It is shaping up to be an exciting year.  We hope to see you out on our rides!

Keep pedaling,

Cheryl Burkhardt, President


Welcome to Silver Wheels


What began in 1998 as just a way to ride with a few friends has turned into one of the area's premier cycling clubs. With a membership hovering around 350, we host over 600 events each year. We try to offer something for just about every cyclist, from  beginning adults to enthusiasts to those pretty serious about the sport.


Our members hail from all over Northern Ohio including the counties of Lorain, Cuyahoga, Erie, Medina, Huron, Summit, and Richland. 


Don't be fooled by the word Silver in our name. Our members range in age from teens to over 90 and an average around age 55. We have an almost even split of 50-50 males and females. We work hard to create a fun place to be for anyone who wants to ride.

Come ride with us

First time guests welcome any time, on any ride.
