Come for the whole week or any part-

Every day is a riding day, with social time in the evenings. Most attendees arrive on Thursday, ride for 2 days and go home on Sunday. Saturday is the biggest riding day, so even if you only come for the weekend, you'll have a great day of riding with lots of fun folks. If you have time to attend Monday-Wednesday, you will experience a relaxed, small rally atmosphere where it's very easy to meet and make new friends.

Expect the parking lot to be empty during the day-

Everyone will be out riding the twisty roads of Southeast Ohio and West Virginia. You can choose one of the official routes, create your own, go sightseeing or whatever strikes your fancy. The EZ Route Selector offers nine convenient categories to help you choose from the over thirty GPS routes in the FlyBy Week collection.

There are no large organized group rides at FlyBy Week-

Attendees mostly ride in small groups of riders with similar preferences, so everyone gets to ride the way they like. Our friends from the Facebook group Adventure Riders Ohio are planning to do guided ADV rides all week. Details to come.
