Break the Cycle celebrates those who are in recovery for addiction and remembers those we lost to the disease. An individual can choose between three bike routes, Holmes County Trail bike ride or walk the trail and a 5K walk in downtown Wooster. The bike ride consists of either a 24-, 50- or 72-miles ride through the scenic countryside of Wayne and Holmes counties. Each route varies in elevation and level of fitness.

72-mile: 7:30 a.m.

50-mile: 7:30 a.m.

Ride 50-miles this year in celebration of OneEighty's 50th Anniversary!

24-mile: 8:30 a.m.

Trial Ride: 8:00 a.m.

Holmes County Trail or also known as Rails to Trails are asphalt trails that are typically flat or gently sloping, with no vehicles sharing the road. "Labeled as the first Trail in the nation to accommodate Amish buggies, the unique and scenic Holmes County Trail has two lanes, one lane of the trail is paved with asphalt for biking, while the adjoining buggy and equestrian trail is paved with "chip and seal" for horse-drawn vehicles and horseback riding."  This ride is for beginner and intermediate riders or families who like to ride together. A SAG Cyclist will be on the trail to accommodate riders. 

5 Decades 5K Walks: 9:00 a.m.

Celebrate OneEighty's 5 Decades (1974-2024) of Helping People Change Direction.

Participants can also partake in a casual 5K Walk on the Holmes County Trail or a 5K Wooster Downtown Walk through historic downtown Wooster and visit OneEighty's Main Office and Recovery Club.

Event's Mission

This event is centered around the mission to reduce the stigma surrounding the issues of substance use disorder and addiction and to support the treatment/prevention services offered at OneEighty.
