Local Road Cycling Routes

The Hockhocking Adena Bikeway is the "Jewel of the Hocking Valley". It follows the Hocking River from Athens to Nelsonville. It is a flat paved path ( 30 ft. total elevation gain ) through a wooded corridor with rolling hills skirting the path. Flora and fauna abound throughout the length of the path.

Athens is a great city for walking and bicycling. Of all communities nationwide between the population of 15,000 and 25,000, Athens has the second highest number of pedestrian commuters and the 11th highest number of bicycle commuters according to the 2000 Census. See our commuter map to find your best cycling route through the city.

Here is a list of cycling routes with maps and elevations in the Athens Ohio area. These routes range from 25 to 100 miles in length

In an effort to boost awareness of Athens County, Ohio and enhance this region's beauty, a community-based group of visual artists, quilters, property owners and civic and social organizations have decorated county barns with quilt squares. We have three mapped out routes for riders to enjoy the barns.

Rolling back roads are at the ready for this loop in the shape of a mullet on the map. The ride goes past Shade, Pleasanton, and New Marshfield.

The Z 45 is a popular loop for those who want to start an 45 mile ride but may want to make it shorter or longer. The route starts on rolling hills but finishes out on the flat Hockhocking Adena Bikeway.

Along time epic ride - this 65 mile loop is one of the most scenic and most challenging rides in the Athens area. The "Rim" section starts out of Trimble and extends to Chester Hill (a 22.8 mile undulating section). Just after the town of Ringold at the total trip mile 28.7, there are three very closely spaced hills nicknamed "The Three Sisters". Here the grade steepens to a nasty 18% on the first two "Sisters". The second to last large peak is Dividing Ridge on State Route 550 and the last small climb is going up Columbus Road (SR 550) into Athens. You can add Terrace Lane if you still have any gas in the tank.

AGreat Ride That Starts at Hocking College, Goes South, and Loops back North. There are five separate self guided tours from 26 to 97 miles through the rolling hills of Athens, Vinton and Meigs County. This makes for an excellent ride that you can adjust shorter or extend on the fly. It is especially scenic in the springtime through the budding dogwood, redbud and wildflowers.

This is a nice century that starts out with rolling hills for the first 25 miles from Athens to the Ohio River in Pomeroy. The rest of the ride follows the Ohio River north and turns onto roads that follow The Hocking River back to Athens.

When you need a challenge, try this 100 mile ride that has over 10,000 feet of climbing
