I'm firming up plans for a couple of rides this year. The first would be early (mid May)--destination SE Ohio (Amish country) and possibly into West Virginia. I've ridden there before but am interested in things to do and see. The second (during high summer) would be a Lake Huron circle. I'm thinking of crossing to Manitoulin Island at Tobermory and riding the North Shore of Georgian Bay to the U.P of Michigan. Has anyone ridden up there in Ontario? I'm looking for things to see (or avoid) and recommendations for places to eat and stay. What about the weather up there?
Southern Ohio is a great place to ride, Amish country,Berlin,is the main town,but remember its a tourist trap and roads are crowded ,the amish stuff is primarily along rt39 and rt 62. I am over there all the time. if you get eastward a god bit,You may want to ride rt 26 aka the National covered bridge senic nighway frm Marietta north,There are appx 11 covered bridges accesable from there and over a dozen in the area.Towns to visit,Athens,if you are in that area,cool town with a old style town square,Chillocothe,marietta itself,stern wheeler riverboats and lots of sights,like the Y
bridge.Cambridge,restored shopping area,neat town.
In reality a set route would help in what to see info,and West Virginia has a ton
to do and see,but again ,it depends on where you want to go,set a route and pm me,I,ll fill you in on anything along your route.Both States are fantastic to ride in,Ohios roads are more technical in that there are a lot of blind rollers and turns ,which isn't a problem as long as you ride sane.
