Basic Information

Come see the city from your bike! Courteous Mass Dayton is a community of bike minded individuals who gather on the first Fridays of the month and take a street ride tour of the city. We do this to raise awareness of bikes as transportation and to raise visibility of cyclist on our streets. Courteous Mass is a bit different from other groups that call themselves Critical Mass. Courteous Mass is dedicated to following the rules of the road to set a rider standard. Courteous Mass is a great way to get yourself familiar with riding your bicycle in the streets. Dayton is recognized as a Bronze-level Bike Friendly City by the League of American Bicyclists for its bicycle friendly infrastructure. Dayton is making it easier for the citizens to use the bicycle as a viable means of transportation. No matter if you’re just starting out riding or if you’ve been riding for years, Courteous Mass is the event for you!

When: First Friday of the Month *NEW*  May-September 6:30pm October-April 5:30pm
Where: Fifth Third Field, 220 N. Patterson Blvd., Dayton, OH
Parking: Metered parking is free after 6pm. There are various free parking spots along Monument. There is always the option of parking at 2nd Street Market and the Oregon District then ride your bike to the event.

  1. Hi, does this group have t-shirts or other items for sale with the group name/logo on them? Looking forward to my first ride with you on April 5.

    • We’re glad you’re planning on attending the ride. We’re looking into getting t-shirts if people show any interest. I will discuss this more at our April ride.

  3. Odd question, but is the group for very serious riders or just casual riders? I have a very casual bike with a basket on it and I don’t want to be the odd man out.

    • Kay, so sorry about the delayed response. The ride is very casual, we do a slow pace and no man is left behind. We usually do a 4-6 mile ride in less than a hours time.

  5. Is there an age limit? My son is 11 and we have been getting into riding the last year or so. We are looking to find others to ride with. We do anywhere from 8 to 12 miles.

What's your 2 cents?
