From 5/30 - 6/2, I led a group of 7 other riders on a journey around the great state of Ohio, and we were able to get some coverage in the Dayton Daily News. One of our group has worked in local media for many years and his contact at the paper wanted to do a story on us.

Four days, four corners, and 1000 miles. We had exceptional weather all 4 days. NW Ohio is flat open country, and the wind farms up there were having a great day when we went through. The wind was blowing so hard, I could feel it twisting my helmet!

We had a close call in downtown Cleveland with at least one car on our way to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

If you are ever in SE Ohio (around Marietta) near Wayne National Forest, I strongly encourage you to take a ride on US Route 26. It has been freshly paved and is nearly 40 miles of twists, turns, and elevation changes that can be done at a leisurely pace or a slightly faster pace.

Overall a great trip that allowed me to see parts of the state I had never seen.
