Ohio Meet and Greet, Lunch, and Ride?
« on: June 27, 2016, 09:04:15 pm »
Ok fellow North Central Coggers. Lets set up a day to get together for lunch or something. There are tons of places to meet in the state. Dover/ Tappan Lake/ Hocking Hills/ Waldo/ Marietta/ all these places have pretty good roads to ride. Suggest some dates and lets get something set up.

That sounds great and I know there are some good routes around there. Now lets pick a date and get some confirmations from some of the COG Members willing to commit.

At this point we have 41 views to this thread? Suggest some dates!

Sounds great! I personally am booked every Saturday from now through 8/16 when I return from NC.
Hopefully (being the Buckeye fan I am) avoid 9/3 (noon OSU game) & 9/10 (3:30 game), 10/1 (noon game), but hey it's not about me, I'll try to live with whatever works for majority, just throwing my 2 cents in.  :great:
Glad to see activity in Ohio.

seems odd. Laurie and I rode over to Troy on Sunday. Had it not started raining and got stupid we would have hollered at ya as we headed off to Delaware and New Albany. Miss riding Ohio byways...but my son took a coaching spot in Athens so I see trips in the future...we will ring you up.

I would be interested in this. Ill be gone the weekends of 7/29 and 8/19. I'm more interested in riding than eating, but a longish lunch is fine, along with some good riding before and after.

Sorry for not chiming in, its been a rough year... id love to do something like this, but I have to refrain from getting too involved in placement and logistics, for fear of not being able to participate in the outcome of it...
Basically I'm freaking broke, not just low on funds, totally broke...
So day to day expenses have.me trying to pry enough money from the couch cushions to buy a couple gallons of gas, just to excercise the bike...

Id be happy to send ya some nice routes, but I can't promise I can make the rides... kind of a bummer, but things have to get better sooner or later..
Best I could do right now is guide a tour around Cleveland...

  another suggestion that would have beaucoup seating is:
 Der Dutchman Restaurant 4967 Walnut Street, Box 158, Walnut Creek, OH 44687

also, if I can make it down there if/when it happens,(excessive work schedule/currently probationary employee) I'd be willing to donate some $$$ for M.O.B.'s meal as payback for sharing your knowledge to the forum! ;D

Der Dutchman sounds great. Now lets pick a day. They are closed on Sundays. I am pretty much available any Saturday. So lets pick one and get a route. Breakfast or Lunch?

Not sure when they open, they seem to me to be a lunch/dinner type of place to me. Bear in mind, Saturday in August will mean lots of tourists bussed in for the noon lunch hour. I get off work at 0700, so I'm free that day, any time is good for me.

If that is the date I will head over to Athens on Friday and ride from there on Saturday. Where are all the Ohio riders on this thread? Seems like the locals would be down for a ride and lunch.  Of course the tO$U alumnae up top gets a pass. Really where are the Ohio riders?

  As stated earlier, I'll still be on the probationary period w/ my new employer, so unless they cancel the saturday workload, I'll have to miss this.. :(

As far as the Buckeye riding group goes, don't know what to say Tom :-X    Maybe the lack of participation from the group is a part of the reason that Bill Hookman passed along the AAD baton.  It does get a bit frustrating disheartening to set up a ride to eat & not have the participation... :character0029:

Tim, you might want to cross-post this on the ZG/GTR forum & the various COG related social media blogs.

My toilet of a concours needs more work than I have time to put in it at the moment, but if you folks won't be offended by my Nighthawk, I'm down for the 6th.

MOB, I'll spot you some gas money if that'll help convince the Mrs.

Cheers,
Joe
