Updated 11/27/12 - One of my favorite river rides! This will be is a joint ride with members from the Erie Road Riders. We'll meet & leave Saturday morning from Geneva Ohio to ride a mix of divided & 2 lane routes down to East Liverpool Ohio. We'll then ride the W. Virginia side of the Ohio river ( Rt 2 ) thru some really OLD river towns with a stop @ Fort Steuben in Stuebenville Ohio. We'll continue on to Wheeling W. Virginia where we will spend the night. We'll ride to Moundsville W.V. & tour the prison Sunday morning. After the tour, we'll ride back up river on the Ohio side to Rt 11 & north to Youngstown. We'll begin to split up after a fuel stop near the Youngstown / Canfield / I-80 area where we will go our separate ways back to the Cleveland & Erie areas.

I'll research & post some accommodation options & proposed route in the near future.

There will be other " Points of Interest " stops along the river towns if time & weather allows.

** Skill Rated ** - Interstate group riding experience recommended. Intermediate & above riding skills preferred.

At times, we will ride in subgroups lead by designated leaders thru towns & in heavier traffic for safety purposes . EVENT HOSTS listed have volunteered as subgroup leaders & sweep riders . Thank you!! We do get split by lights & traffic. ALL RIDERS must be willing & capable of leading others to regroup points outside of towns or the next scheduled stop if necessary . I roll sober & safe & the same is expected from guests. Thank you.
