Cuyahoga Valley National Park is having a pancake breakfast at Stanford House in the village of Boston from 10 - 2. Homemade pancakes and sausages, locally-sourced maple syrup and more! They will also offer hikes and tours of the recently remodeled Stanford House.
Cost for breakfast: $8.00
The weather forecast calls for 55̊̊ ̊ and sunny that day. If that holds or it's even warmer, why not meet at Canal Visitor Center and ride south for this, then ride back for a total of about 18 miles. If it's nice and we feel like going farther, we could do that, too.
The towpath shouldn't be too crowded this early in the year. :-)
