Year of Yay! is a series of 12 monthly bicycle tours that are FREE for members and first-time guests. Year of Yay! is being offered in 2016 through the generous support of the Whole Foods Market at Easton, where each ride will begin and end throughout the year. First-time riders and anyone with questions: join us 15 minutes early (9:45am) to learn the rules of the road and this ride!


This month, ride leader Mark Spurgeon brings you the theme HEARTWARMING! 

Cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, nutmeg, and garlic. Have you ever wondered why these fragrant spices feature prominently in holiday baking? They're extremely warming and beneficial to your body in the midst of winter.  Our stop on this ride is the Ohio Herb Education Center, located in the Nafzger-Miller house in Gahanna — declared the Herb Capital of Ohio in 1972. 

The Nafzger-Miller house is listed in the National Register of Historical Places with the original structure being built in 1855, and additions made to the home in 1910. Watch for a special appearance by a certain jolly old elf.
