Bike Aboard! on the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad

We are proud to be the exclusive bicycle shop supporter of the CVSR Bike Aboard service!

Ride the Rail - Bike the Trail!

Bike the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail, then hop on the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad train for a relaxing ride back to your car! For only $5 you can load your bike aboard Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad for a one-way trip. Or, do it in reverse! Pick the boarding station where you want to get off and enjoy biking back to your car along the Towpath Trail.

  • Please arrive at a boarding station 10 minutes prior to the train's scheduled arrival.
  • The train can be flagged down at boarding stations by waving both arms over your head.
  • Purchase your ticket when you board.
  • One way between stations, once per day.
  • $5 per person for ages 3 and up, includes your bicycle, exact change is appreciated.
  • No guaranteed seats.

PLEASE NOTE: Through June of 2018, you will NOT be able to use the Bike Aboard service with our Towpath Trail Bicycle Rental service. This is because of construction closures on the Towpath Trail to the north and south of Peninsula. If you board the train in Peninsula, it will NOT be possible to bike on the Towpath Trail to return to Peninsula.
