    What Region Of Usa Are You Located?

    It has been suggested we have regional get togethers.

    TO WHICH REGION OF USA COULD YOU EASILY TRAVEL FOR A 50+ GET-TOGETHER?

    OK, if we wanted to have "regional" get togethers, to which city are you closest? How far would you go to a get-together?

    I've listed some major cities in the US of A. Sorry if I missed yours. There are only 10 choices available on a poll. If you have another suggestion, please list it below. Stapfam, you will have to handle Europe!

    OK - a vote for Boston. I wish there were more than 10 choices available in a poll. There were a LOT of areas I had to leave out!

    I voted for DC cause I live here, but would also do about any place within a day's drive, assuming such a gathering involved some riding: most of New England, NY, PA, eastern OH, eastern KY, eastern TN, NC, Va, WVa, MD, DE, NJ. If what we have in mind is just pie, beer, BS, and the like, I would try to make it anywhere that has good flight schedules from DC.

    This is a great idea, Herr Fox

    I only voted for Chicago because it's the closest.

    I only voted for Nashville because it's closest. Hey Beverly, how about lobbying to have Cincinnati added to the list?

    I'm not real anxious to drive in Boston again. You all have some crazy traffic rules....driving on the berm of the road, etc. It's like bumper cars coming out of the airport. No wonder the rental company didn't care how many dents were already in my rental car. On the other hand maybe I'll meet up with a couple of those drivers who scared the crap out of me and I can repay their kindness

    Another annoying thing was the young man at the service station didn't know where the "pop" machine was located

    Add anything you might like. That is the purpose. There are only 10 options available. SO we need all the suggestions we can get.

    One vote for Cincinnati.

    That would be great. They have some fantastic hills in the Cincy area

    How about Kansas City, the city closest to the geographic center of the U.S. (lower 48)?
    It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.

    Here's a nice route we did last Sunday, east of Cincinnati. It's marked with spray paint at all the turns. It's 40 miles, mostly flat, with some short 50-100 foot hills around Fayetteville. With the route marked, it's easy to break up into speed groups.

    The page includes starting location and a route map:
    Chili Ride Repeat

    A Cincinnati route with hills and more hills can be arranged, too.

    Hey!!!! I think you need to go to a neutral country for this. I think Costa Rica might be a good choice.

    I voted Atlanta, but somewhere midway up the Atlantic coast would be good. Maybe in the mountains.

    What do you mean by "rules"? I thought traffic regulations were more in the nature of suggestions.

    Too late, I read your post in the other forum about how your roads are made.

    Where is your sense of adventure - jumping a snake is a lot easier than jumping a chicken!

    I did the Chili Ride earlier this year. A nice ride except for the winds this year.

    There's also the Little Miami Scenic Trail for people who aren't especially fond on hills.
