About Bike Aboard!

Ride your bike along the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail in one direction and ride the train back in the other! The train can be flagged down at any of our boarding stations by waving both arms over your head. One arm is just a friendly wave to the Engineer. Please arrive 10 minutes before the departure time. Bikers pay $5 fare upon boarding. Exact change is appreciated. Fee of $5 per person (ages three and older). A Bike Aboard! pass is available for $35 per person. Bike Aboard! is sponsored by Cleveland Clinic and Century Cycles.
