CORTLAND, Ohio (WKBN) – Cyclists gathered at the Fairgrounds Banquet Center for the 48th Northeast Ohio Century Tour.

People from across northeast Ohio and western Pennsylvania biked all over Trumbull County Sunday.

Cyclists chose from 6 different routes to ride on. Routes ranged from 12-27 miles long over mostly flat countryside.

There was also a 25 mile option along the Western Reserve Greenway bike trail for those who aren’t road riders. Riders could even combine routes — every route put together made for a 100 mile ride.

They all began and ended at the Fairgrounds Banquet Center.

Support vehicles were available and registration ended at 11 a.m. Bike helmets were required at the event.

“I got into riding when I quit smoking, to be honest with you, and I’ve been riding now for about 16 years. It’s just good for the health and good to clear the mind,” said Out-Spokin’ Wheelmen Bicycling Club member Dave Hughes.

Over 150 bikers participated.
