    I don't know much about the south end, but I'm on the north part pretty regular, it's good up to about the turnpike, when you get to Wakeman, head west to the other side of the river and take the little county road, it's a hoot.

    Wasn't planning on it. Are you going to? I was thinking about staying in Chilicothe at a friends place but that's not set in stone. ;)

    I wanted to but I died from yesterdays Adv ride to Pa. I was supposed to hook up with some Pa riders from another forum but didn't make it in time for the departure.

    I rode up to Youngstown to get the NEO tag then off to Marienville, Pa to do the trails up there. At the 1st trial crossing and took the bike trail over to the ATV trail. *A big mistake taking the toughest part of the trail 1st with a nearly full tank of gas. *I did the ATV loop then went over and did the rest of the bike loop. *After that I did some exploring then went up and rode the Rocky Gap trail before heading home. *Surprisingly even with all the trail riding and exploring I managed to make all the trails and back to Franklin, Pa at 407 miles before buying gas and even then I still had 2 gallons left, I may have been able to at least make it back to the Ohio border. 546 miles, 15 hours

    Yes. Up to about Wakeman is good (as someone already noted). I'm a few miles east of 60 up along the lake.

    From Wakeman to the lake is only another 12 miles or so. If you take it all the way to Lake Erie, watch out for speed traps as you come into New London from the south, and a mile or two before Birmingham (where 113 crosses) in something called "terrytown"

    Ugh. This reminds me of Moraine State Park near Slippery Rock, the roughest mountain bike trail I've been on. It seemed like the whole damn thing was a rock garden.

    Good time at Perry today...Z@ch got his last taste of the Perry mud before going full Texan, and invisible monster joined us for part of the day too.

    Liking the 520 offroad, still not 100% used to it but I'll get there.
