Southeast Ohio is amazing, let's ride

I called off work last October for one last warm weather 75 degree ride in October, Kaidesch (sp?) Point Park off of Ohio State Rt 536 about 350-400' above the Ohio River



One of my favorite runs, Wayne National Forest deep in SE Ohio



This road has some wicked i.e. DANGEROUS curves and 5 month old pavement... It was love at first sight! Beware of southbound runs on it in particular, there is one 15mph marked curve decreasing radius with a dropoff in elevation and maybe slightly off camber that wrecks many many bikes.... Just after the stop sigh af Sykes Ridge Rd (another good one)


Many years ago and a few incarnations back of my primary rider:

Not my pictures, but to show the awesomeness of riding Appalachian Southeast Ohio:






















No epic mountain elevations, but otherwise this region is filled with world class riding to be experienced... Consider ditching those economy tires or overpriced retro antique outdated 40 years ago tires (or dual sport tires on your street bike...not best for the good fun stuff) for some Pirelli Sport Demons, Bridgestone Battlax's, Avon RoadRiders, Shinko 230/SR741, etc.. as you will love riding these awesome roads with some sporty phenomenally gripping tires...  There's not nearly the fun potential to be had if you are building a paradoxical "cafe racer" and not running street tires that are nearly race worthy.  a true cafe racer should hold true to the racer part of the name for practical reasons, not cosmetic. You will enjoy it afterwards far more when you get to experience southeast Ohio, West Virginia, Eastern KY, NC, eastern TN, the WV bordering areas of VA, etc... I live for this stuff.

Pardon the photo bombing, winter is always too long and I'm ready to ride... 76 degrees today! Spring has sprung...

I get up to Canton once in a while, and Wooster a bit more often yet.
