October 3-4, 2020.

The American Spring Classic

There are many rides, but only one is America’s bicycle touring classic; TOSRV. The Tour of the Scioto River Valley began as a father-and-son outing 1962 before quickly growing into (at one time) the nation’s largest bicycle touring weekend.

Typically, about 1500 cyclists participate in the annual May weekend tour. The tour will leave from either Canal Winchester, Chillicothe, or Portsmouth on Saturday morning – rider preference! Parking for north start riders will be available at BrewDog’s DogTap Brewery on Gender Road, the location of the post-ride celebration and certificate pick-up. Parking for south start riders will be available at the SOMC Friends Center/LIFE Center in Portsmouth. Chillicothe riders will park on any street within Yoctangee Park.

Since the TOSRV route runs along the Scioto River valley, it avoids the large hills of southern Ohio.

Riders have many options for the amount of miles they want to ride. Registration options for the ride are available here.

TOSRV is organized by Columbus Outdoor Pursuits (COP), an organization with a full range of non-competitive outdoor activities. The tour has become known as America’s Bicycle Touring Classic.
