Our Accomplishments

4.1 mile Buckeye Lake Dam Trail – Bike Buckeye Lake drove, and sold, the concept of having a multi-purpose trail on top of the new Buckeye Lake dam, which was not part of the original dam concept. The current 4.1 mile trail on top of the Buckeye Lake dam, that we all enjoy today, is a result of Bike Buckeye Lake working closely with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) and other supporters on the vision, design and development. Watch Ohio Gov. John Kasich celebrate Buckeye Lake Dam opening.

Successful Cycling Event – To raise awareness and support for Bike Buckeye Lake’s Mission, we hold an annual Tour de Buckeye Lake cycling event that has brought over 200 cyclists to the Buckeye Lake region the last two years. We strive to increase riders each year! To learn more about Tour de Buckeye Lake, click here.

Providing Bikes to Underprivileged – Each year, Bike Buckeye Lake holds a bike drive to provide underprivileged children, and recently their parents as well, with bicycles. As of 2019, Bike Buckeye Lake, through the generosity of supporters and donors, has given over 400 bikes to economically disadvantaged children. There is a high level of poverty and need in the counties surrounding Buckeye Lake. Without community support some children would receive nothing for Christmas. We can’t have that.

Supporters – One of the greatest accomplishments of Bike Buckeye Lake is being able to garner the amount of support it has. From donors and Tour de Buckeye Lake cyclists, to event sponsors, volunteers and local development agencies, the support for Bike Buckeye Lake’s Mission of multi-purpose trail development has been amazing.
