After a one day delay due to rain I loaded up the bike hauler, picked up “the boys” (rtool and John) and started the 3 hour drive to northeast Ohio. We were accepting an invitation from Louis and his wife for a ride on the Cuyahoga Valley Towpath and dinner afterwards.
After coffee and pastries with Louis and his wife we headed out to the Cuyahoga Valley Towpath. It was a little chilly but warmed slightly as we rode from the Botzum trailhead north to the Canal Visitor Center.
The valley was in full fall color!

Here are a few of the places we visited along the trail.

On the return trip to Botzum we stopped in Peninsula to enjoy the required pie and a visit to Century Cycles. The pie and ice cream was wonderful....warm apple with caramel.

The favorite part of the trip was the delicious Italian dinner, wine and conversation we enjoyed with Louis and his wife Maddie. We would have loved to stay longer but with another 3 hour drive home we reluctantly left for the trip home.
