I'm in Delaware and wondering if there is any stuff to goof around on in the area. Gonna go over by the Scioto River near by to see what's over there north of 36 this weekend.

Later in the month going east to T-county to ride with a friend when not busy for a weekend.

In terms of gravel there isn't anything to difficult, but there are some gravel roads around Delaware state park off of Cole Rd. Panhandle Rd. and a few roads off of 229. You do have to get pretty creative if you only wanna go for an hour ride. I haven't check around Ostrander, but that could be promising.

There are a few paved roads that actually have really for real turns in them that can't be negotiated at 50 in a car, so I'm hoping there might be some kind of gravel stuff or at least some more enjoyable paved ones close to the river. I just live up the road from Ostrander near the SR37 Kroger.

I'm going to try to go doink around there either tomorrow afternoon or Sunday...

There's a good Mexican place in Marysville too... and of course the Hamburger Inn.

I'd enjoy it. PM me if anyone's interested.

That's what it used to be for. Now it's a lot of other random stuff. We could change the name to. Central Ohio ADV Riding; The Search For The Fountain of Youth."

Any of you Delaware boys know anything about the condition/status/legality of the slate pits on the southeast side?

I have a close friend that works at the Delaware PD. I can check on that.

My Friend says that the Slate Pits are private property, and they have been keeping an extra eye on it to keep people outta there. Not saying don't ride there, but the word is the best in blue will be waiting when you leave.

well, that's good enough for me to stay home

I would have been surprised to hear that it was legal, but I'm sad i don't get to relive my childhood days of riding pedal bikes back there. Probably not a huge loss, google earth makes it look like it's rutted all to hell anyway.

Thanks for checking on that though. Probably saved me an exploratory mission/ticket.

along the lines of the slate pits, I'd love to find a local screw-around area, you know, a place you could shake out any mechanical stuff, make tuning or suspension tweaks, or hone some techniques without committing to a hocking county trip or a trail ride away from the relative safety of the truck/tool box.

I'd like to find a place like that too. I'm going to start searching the county on this website. http://www.delco-gis.org/auditor/
It shows all the propety lines, and public property, it even gives owner name if you click on the land. This way I could maybe get permission to ride if I want to.
Not that I'm a goody-two-shoes, but I don't wanna tear up the land someone worked hard for.
