COLUMBIANA COUNTY, Ohio (WKBN) – Cyclists from across the region braved the weather for a tour around Columbiana County.

The Spring in Columbiana County tour is hosted by the local cycling group, Outspokin’ Wheelmen. It was the 27th year that the group has hosted the tour.

Though the weather wasn’t perfect, people still came out to enjoy the trails.

One woman from Cleveland said she drove down the night before to be ready for the morning.

“I didn’t want to be tempted to say, ‘You know what? It’s raining; I’ll go do something else.’ I wanted to be here. I wanted to commit, and I’m gonna ride,” said Ruth Simonis.

It was Simonis’ first time cycling in this tour. She said she enjoyed the rural towns and the differences there are between Columbiana and Cleveland.

The tour helps fund the Outspokin’ Wheelmen’s organization and other projects in the area.
