So I'm planning a day trip from Erie, PA to Powder Mill Run in Youngstown, OH.
I'm good on the routing near Erie, but I'm not sure what roads to avoid / prefer the closer I get to Youngstown. Anyone from that area want to comment on the proposed biking directions from Google maps?
I've done my best to look at streetview, and I can't seem to find any roads that look better than others unless I really go and extra 16 miles to the 25 mile Western Reserve Greenway trail.. and I haven't ever had good luck with trails. If it's a good trail, it might be worth it, depending on what routing options I have after I get off that.
I'll be riding a recumbent trike, so a narrow shoulder is as good as no shoulder unless it's a wide lane.
Not sure if this would go over better in touring or a local specific forum, so mods please move if there's a better place.
