General Information

Join the Ann Arbor Bicycle Touring Society (AABTS) for a day of scenic bicycle touring over tree-lined, paved roads in Washtenaw, Ingham, Jackson and Livingston counties. The routes wind through rural and recreation areas on beautiful rolling terrain and vary enough to appeal to a broad range of bicyclists.  The 100 mile ride famously passes through Hell ! (Michigan, that is).  

OHR riders can choose from several paved and dirt road routes. All rides start and end at Chelsea Fairgrounds in Chelsea, Michigan.   

new this year ! All rides start and end at Chelsea Fairgrounds where you can finish your ride with a buffet lunch, cold watermelon and live music.
