I’m really looking forward to the Trans-Ohio trip because it comes with the best bragging rights.
Imagine returning to work after the long 4th of July weekend. “So what did you do over the weekend?” your co-worker asks expecting to get, “had a picnic”, “went fishing” or “rented a pontoon boat” back. But instead you answer “not much, just rode my bicycle across the state of Ohio. Richmond, Indiana to Wheeling, West Virginia, no big deal.”
This trip is a lot of miles, but the terrain is fairly mild. We’ll follow historic route 40 for most of the trip, and it should be a relaxing, safe ride all the way ACROSS OHIO.
Trip Date: July 1-3, 2011
Total Length: 270 miles
Average Day: 90 miles
Trip Fee: $90 if registered by 6/1/11
Our first trip of the 2011 season, Trans-Ohio will take us on a smooth adventure from Ohio’s Indiana border, all the way to Ohio’s border with West Virginia. The mileage will be longer than some of our other trips, but the terrain will be mostly flat and will follow many designated bike routes.
On day one, riders will be provided with early morning transportation from Columbus, Ohio to the starting point in Richmond, Indiana. That day we’ll ride through the scenic flatlands of Eastern Ohio and spend the night in London. Day two will pass through Columbus, and the gentle rolling hills of Central Ohio to end the day in Zanesville. Finally, day three will continue along Route 40 to complete the trip in Wheeling, West Virginia. Transportation will be provided back to Columbus.
If you’d like to join us on Saturday of your July 4th weekend, it should be a nice 90 mile jaunt from London, Ohio to Zanesville, Ohio.
