Today’s ride has us riding in circles. We are taking a tour of Summit County’s northeastern suburbs on the Summit Hike and Bike loop. Meet us in the Brust Park parking lot on Route 91/Darrow Road in Munroe Falls. Heading west, we pass along the Cuyahoga River on our way to Silver Lake. At Kent Road, we cycle quiet neighborhood streets along the shores of Silver Lake that lead us into Stow. At Hudson Drive, we rejoin the dedicated bike trail and roll along the side of Route 8 on way to our rest stop at the Route 303 trailhead.
We head east on the loop through Hudson and into Stow passing Silver Springs Park and Bow Wow Beach. Soon, we leave the trail and head south on Young Road on our way to Graham Road. Heading for lunch at Moe's Southwest Grill in the Graham Road Plaza adjoining the Bike and Hike. After lunch, we return the trail along Graham Road. We pass through a quiet residential area as we near Fishcreek Road.
Following sidewalks along Fishcreek Road, we rejoin the trail on Dayton Avenue and head south to North River Road. A short jog east on the road takes us to the Kent trailhead. We follow the last miles cycling along the Cuyahoga as we end our ride at Brust Park.
