When I was out on a Century Cycles night ride I ran into Murray leading one of the Meetups.
I'm getting more familiar with good spots to ride in NE Ohio. I like riding on the Towpath, Summit Hike 'n Bike trail, and the CLE Metroparks Emerald Necklace. Ray's MTB is a must try in the winter and Cleveland Velodrome during the spring, summer, and fall.
The Winking Lizard(s) are a tried and true option. I also like Mike's or Cornerstone in Berea. Sullivan's, Harry Buffalo, or Buckeye Beer Engine are good spots in Lakewood.
Most of my friends are pretty active and I'm sure some of them would also be interested in Meetups.
I have a few bikes (for both on and off road riding). It's nice to have an extra bike in case a friend needs to borrow one.
I began riding again a few years ago and kept up with it after doing Pedal to the Point. I love riding as a way to unwind from work and to get out into nature.
