I and possibly Cheri might go up to join them for a nice easy ride on a combo of paved MUP and a little road.
Chip please explain! I tried to follow the tread but have no idea where or when they are meeting. If its at 12:00 I'm good to go any earlier and no chance!
Would you use a road bike on this type of trip Chip?
nevermind,I see it,s paved

Yeah, so far we are saying Sunday at 12:00 at point 8 on the map.
Thanks mk I will make every effort to be there!

Sunday at noon. Point 8 is the Munroe Falls trailhead, which is on Rt.91 just south of N River Rd.
Easiest way to get there from the north is to bring the Ohio Turnpike to Rt 8, take Rt 8 south to Graham Rd exit, left on Grahamm, continue east on Graham to Rt 91 (Darrow Rd), turn right on 91 and follow it south. After you cross Rt 59, you'll drop down a hill and come to a stoplight (N River Rd.)...proceed through the light about 500 feet and you will see the Munroe Falls trailhead entrance on the left (fire station is on the right).
The path is mostly paved, but there are a couple of unpaved portions, a couple of wooden bridges that will rattle your teeth, and a couple of rough sections of road.
I'm riding my beater Bianchi, not my road bike.
Thanks for the directions Chip, I'm going to try and be there, hoping church don't run long.
I will be on my vintage bike, a Korean made bike I bought back in 1968 with money from my first job.
5/3 37miles on the summit/akron bike trails, Nice enjoyable ride with 6 forum members and Me and wife and daughter. It was nice to meet you all, and be able to put names and faces together, let's do it again sometime.
