Steve Woosley Memorial Depot Day Rides 4 x 25 miles

This ride was first proposed and organized by club member Steve Woosley. The name was changed in 2019 to honor his memory.

Four 25 mile loop options are offered. (both clockwise and counter clockwise).  All routes start and end at the Oberlin George Abram Pavilion east of McDonalds, next to the gasholder building lot off the Auto Zone lot.  

This is a Map/YOYO (You’re On Your Own) ride.  Riding the trail is also recordable mileage. There are no designated ride leaders.  The routes are not marked and there is no SAG support.    It is strongly recommended that you print your own.map/cues using the RWGPS event link below.


Riders are encouraged to ride with a partner and carry a cell phone.  Folks offering to ride specific routes at certain times/paces looking for companions will be posted here as known.  

Riders should sign in at the Pavilion prior to riding, or if starting before 8 a.m., stop in between segments.  Riders are also encouraged to check back in when they are finished riding and to record their mileage for the day. 

If you wish, this event is a nice chance to stretch yourself and achieve a personal record for ride length, do a century - metric or full - or just enjoy a fun ride in a familiar and friendly environment.  Do as many loops as you want, quit when you have had enough,

Dennis Stout

Chair, Ride Committee    

Contact Dennis Stout at dbstout@windstream.net with any questions or if you willing to serve as a registration minder during the day. I hope to have enough people volunteer to set up one hour shifts for most of the day.

NOTE:  If using the Auto Zone lot, please park along the west, (Rt 58), side as much as possible to avoid inconveniencing Auto Zone customers.

Additional details posted as available. 


Friends of club members Dennis Stout and Ed Stewart want to recognize their 80th birthdays on Saturday, June 4 during the Woosley Depot Day rides.  There will be a 1 p.m. potluck at the Abram Pavilion with a birthday cake.  If you are riding that day, you can leave your potluck food at the pavilion in the morning where you will sign in/ out for your rides.  If you bring something which needs to be kept cool, please bring your own cooler with ice to hold it in.  There is no refrigeration at the pavilion.  If you are bringing something hot in a crockpot, there are electrical outlets in the pavilion.  If you can’t take time to eat at the potluck, we hope you’ll stop long enough to wish Ed and Dennis a happy birthday, and perhaps share a piece of cake (donated by Eleanor Stout).  We realize that some riders have many miles they hope to ride that day, don’t wish to eat heavy, and don’t have time to stop for long.  Hope you can still take a moment to wish these two octogenarians a happy birthday!
