    Need some route suggestions-Fairfield County/Lancaster, OH

    Rough idea @ the moment

    I'm moving back with my parents for the last few years of my undergrad and attending one of the regional campuses. On the map it looks to be a decent ride, with the only rough spots being Route 37 in Lancaster, where the college is located, and my parent's road (where I do see a number of recreational cyclists).

    Any tips or alterations to this? Looking on the 'net, I see rumors that Lancaster has a bike path that would connect to the OU campus. Just can't seem to mind an actual map.

    Thanks for the help!

    Your route looks good. Carroll Eastern Rd probably gets a bit less traffic than Pleasantville Rd, but either is fine.

    The short stretch of 37 shouldn't be bad. There is usually not a ton of traffic and there is a narrow shoulder.

    Thanks. I added that on the map for my reference. If I can, I tend to drive my routes first to get at least an idea.

    I just need to see if the college has bike racks.

    I'm not from the area (live northern Ohio) but I beleive "Columbus Outdoor Pursuits" does a lot of riding in and around that area. You may want to try their website for some suggestions, I know they have a monday night ride in that area. I have had a chance to ride with their monday grove city group and had a great time.
