OhioBikeways closing?

Sad news on www.ohiobikeways.net, specifically a mention of closing!

Wheels have been set in motion that will prevent current ownership of Ohio Bikeways.net from continuing to manage and maintain the website. As a result, this Ohio trail resource will likely be shutting down in the near future.

If any group, organization or individuals are interested in pursuing ownership of Ohio Bikeways — whether in its current state or a reconfigured version of their choosing — feel free to contact me — bikeohio[at]icloud[dot]com. Serious inquiries only, please.

The Ohio Bikeways website includes 2 domains: OhioBikeways.net and OhioBikeways.com. The latter is currently configured to redirect users to OhioBikeways.net. But of course that can be flipped so that OhioBikeways.com is the main url.

Website visitation rates for 2020 are still quite strong, as Ohio Bikeways is a well-established resource for Ohioans, as well as those outside the buckeye state, who wish to explore Ohio Bikeways.

I’ve enjoyed my time spent developing and growing the website and want to give a big shout-out to all those who have contributed to Ohio Bikeways content over the years — THANK YOU!!

Continue to ride safe and I hope to see you on the trails sometime soon!
Since getting back into cycling, I have found this site to be a most valuable resource. I really hope someone, or a group of someones, is able to step up and take over the reins.

Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd good news from a couple days ago!

Special thanks to Pete for all of his hard work and dedication in providing such a valuable service to the Ohio biking community throughout the years!Ohio Bikeways will remain up and running under new ownership from this point forward. This website has been far too valuable of a resource to the community to let it simply fade away. We have used this site to plan many rides, and we know that we would miss it if it was no longer around, so we decided to step in and take over where Pete had left off. We want to be sure to provide the same level of care and detail given by Pete over the years, as well as improve on the site where we can. We would love to hear from all of you as to what you like about the site, what you would see improved about the site, and just comments or suggestions in general if you should have any.

Our current plans for the site include general improvements to the look-and-feel of the site as well as the mobile functionality. We would love to have more photos of trails, including a way for users to share their favorite shots of the trails we all know and love. As we said above - feel free to send your suggestions our way!
