Why did you join this group?

Bicycling is more enjoyable with other people. I'd like to learn new bike trails also.

Do you know the area? Do you know any good areas to bike? Where is your favorite place to ride?

My favorite place to ride is the Ohio and Erie Canal Reservation, towpath from Rockside north. I like it better that the CVNP towpath because it is paved asphalt the entire way. I also like the Strongsville metroparks because they are flat. But my all-time favorite place is Presque Isle state park in Erie, PA. Its only 2 hours from Cleveland and an absolute treasure.

Best Place to eat?

BBQ! Hoggy's on Canal Road across from towpath. Also Famous Dave's in North Olmsted. As far as pizza, Angie's Pizza in Independence.

Do you have friends that would join?

Yes, Kevin McCarthy invited me. And I think friends Jessica, Carol, Mike and maybe Joe would as well.

what kind of bike do you have?

Its an Iron Horse mountain bike. About 17 years old, but had a new drive train, gears, and shifters put on. Rides like new.


I'm Dean, 40, SWM from Independence. I work in Strongsville. I ride because of the exercise I get without beating up my joints. My normal workout rides are 10-15 miles, usually 3, 4 times a week. If I am really pushing it, I will go 20 plus.
