Just saw this post. I'm in.

Haven't seen any suggested routes for the ride after breakfast.

Is there a plan?

I've got a route in mind for the ride back to Columbus which includes a lunch stop at US 62 BBQ in Johnstown, but it has lunch being about 2.5 hours after breakfast, so I am up for killing some time if you have something in mind.

Brent lives pretty close so he should know a route.

Which way do we want to go?? How long?

the routes I know/like from that area are to the South and East. Not opposed to going West its just out of my riding area and don't know it except Rt 62.

I like Rt 93 going south from Rt 250 all the way to Zainsville. take us about 1.5 hrs

Rt 93 to Rt 516 heading back east toward Dover cutting across back roads to catch Rt 212,  Rt 542 and Rt 39 that runs long Atwood Lake is one of my favorite rides around the Dover area.  take us about 1.5 hrs to reach Carrollton.

From there we can part ways or we can extend the ride if guys are still interested. I've set all day aside for riding so I'm in for the long haul.

Can't fit my time frames. Was going to head down to Athens tonite and get up early to make it up 93 through Logan but not gonna make it.Son is back in school and football started with first scrimmage this evening.  Have a good breakfast and a great ride. BBQ on 62 is well worth making room. Straight south on 60 to Mcconnelsville gets you into some pretty good riding. Enjoy the day. I'll be there on one of those OHIO days. Since the wife left southeast ohio and  moved over here I am missing our weekends cutting up Hocking Hills.

Forgot to mention about the Winesburg Meat Mkt about 5 miles north of there on Rt62 in case your looking for some good fresh jerky & beef sticks to stash in your tank bag to snack on.  Take Rt515 from the parking lot & head north to 62, then right for another mile.

Has a great time riding with all of you. Excellent choice meeting at Der Dutchman. I guess 10 showed up. Roads were in great shape. We are spoiled in Ohio with some great areas to ride in. Lets do it again soon.
Thanks Tim

Tim, here's the route we took to the restaurant:

and the route I took home:

Here's the 3 hour ride I told you that I take a lot that combines the 2 above without the section heading north on 62:

There are also a lot of county roads off of 60/62/520 that are pretty good, too.

Sorry I missed you guys, momma finally got a day off, and we planned on an early departure, was all set to roll outta here when she begain feeling ill, and I didn't think it would be fair to leave her behind....  so we hung out till she felt better and by then it was lunchtime...
I'll plan accordingly if another event pops up... neither of us have had any decent riding this year, just short jaunts in n.e. ohio, as she works almost every weekend...I think she was more bummed than me, seeing as it was the first Saturday off for her since April...doh.

Glad to hear it was a good day for y'all, and everyone made it home in one piece....

Ride safe,

That was great Randy, and I reallllly have to applaude you for doing something without realizing what you did..m I'll explain...
Your video, was perfect in every way, and did what we "old dudes" try to explain over and over,
It shows a total and responsible manner of "group" riding, with people stretched out within sight, travelling at a distance releative to road speed, and "never bunching up and riding like pirates"...
Awesom, you will go far, and your propensity for safe and fun is greatly apreciated...


I'm really sorry I missed this.. really good job.

Had a good time at breakfast, I headed north afterward as Zanesville was in the opposite direction for me. Ready to do it again though. ;D

It was a lot of fun meeting and riding with you guys. Glad everybody made it home safe.

Randy, did you get any video of those "twisty" roads your gps found for us on the way home? I hadn't planned on doing the dirt/gravel horse path thing.

Cheers,
Joe
