Used to live in the area, and I rode the park all the time. Not sure of your exact route - but riding through the valley should be a fairly pleasureable expereince. I try to get a ride in whenever I visit the folks.
Your location in Beford would probably be the determining factor of route. Cuyahoga Falls seemed pretty pleasant last time I went through. Bedford, I imagine, could be challenging when looking at route, road quality, etc.
You plan on sticking to the road or using the towpath and getting all chalk covered from the limestone?
So long. Been nice knowing you BF.... to all the friends I've made here and in real life... its been great. But this place needs an enema.
