Easy Sunday Casual Ride!

Many thanks to fellow CMR John Brake for organizing, routing and leading this ride!

 

Meet 11:00 am Sunday August 4th at Smash Burger, 109 N. Hamilton Rd. Columbus, 43230 for lunch and with your fuel tanks full. (It's on the west side of Hamilton just north of the high school - easy to get to from I-270 and North Hamilton Road on the northeast side).

If you don't want to have lunch then meet at 11:45 sharp.
Kickstands up at 12pm.

We will roll up the 62 to the Bridge of Dreams and take our first break there (about an Hour and 20 mins).
Then on to another bridge, the Helmick covered bridge (about another ½ hour)
From there its kinda just heading back to our starting point passing through Coshocton and Newark.

The total ride time is about 3 ½ hours. With breaks figure about 5 hours.

    Debbie (my wife) and I thoroughly enjoyed the ride and the company of all the riders we were blessed with meeting. This is a great group with whom to ride and converse. It was a great day to ride. Thanks to John Brake and Randall for their efforts in making sure we stayed safe and stayed together as a group, and thanks to everone else who made it a "wanna-do-again" day!!!

    I really want to go, but there is a possibility I might have to work at 2. I've been trying to decide if it's worth going to the ride for at least a little bit even if I have to turn around to go into work.

    I live in Gahanna and this evening (after returning stuff to the library) I rode on up Johnstown Rd to the blocked section, then back down to Central College Rd, to Beech and on up to US 62, just like you show in the map. Just beware of the 10 mph curve on Central College, followed by the 15 mph curve.
    I came back on Mink to Morse to Clark State. NB. Centennial HD is just east of Mink on Broad street. :)

    Looking forward to Sunday. This will be my first group ride. Last one I tried to do got cancelled by weather. Hope the weather is better this time.

    So I rode the route today for the first time and made a few changes. The original plan to see the second bridge would have had us traveling a gravel road for a bit longer than I want to be on gravel. The new route will have us go at the bridge from the opposite direction, then return the same way we go in.
    I also shortened the route just a bit bypassing going through Coshocton (it was boring).

    The link to the map above reflects the changes made.

    Look forward to see everyone Sunday !!

    I have never ridden with a group let alone for a long ride. I am responding Yes as there isn't Tentative option. I really want to join you all, but won't know for sure until day before at which time I will confirm!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
