Anybody in northeast Ohio want to meet for a ride?

Sorry, I know there's already a thread for this, but it's not coming up on my computer today. I'm going to be visiting my folks in Salem OH during Christmas, and will probably be free on the 26th, 27th, 28th, and 30th. Anybody want to go for a ride? I'm willing to drive up to 45 minutes or so and like to ride road and mountain bikes(if there are any trails are open). I may also need to borrow a bike. I am going to dig around in the barn and see if I can find any in there, but there's no telling what I might find. I normally ride a medium mountain bike or a 54cm road bike, but I'm willing to be flexible. I plan on bringing my pedals and shoes. Thanks a lot.

You might want to check out Peninsula, Ohio & Century Cycles. You could rent a bike there maybe, and ride the towpath. It's the bike shop I use and they're great. I'd just give them a phone call to see if they're open/fully functioning at that time of year and if the towpath is completely open. (I'm just unfamiliar with their winter policies, or the policies of any bike shop for that matter). Don't forget to eat at Winking Lizard next door if you do go up!

Fun fact: I was born in Salem.

Enjoy Ohio.
