The Rubber Ducks (minor league baseball team) were playing that night and the Goodyear Blimp was already up in the air.


There's no escaping Akron's connection to rubber.

We stayed at the priciest hotel we could find, the Courtyard Marriott on the north side of downtown. Luckily, it was within stumbling distance to the best pizza joint in town, Luigi's. You'd better check it out if you're nearby.

From my hotel room, you can see the lot from the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad, which provides rides to cyclists and hikers all through the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

It was a foggy morning, and fairly chilly, but it would eventually burn off the closer we got to Cleveland. But yeah, those first few miles were a little uncomfortable...

By the time we got into Peninsula, it was really pleasant in terms of temperature. However, the pedestrians were out in full force, being a Saturday on a holiday weekend.

As you exit the CVNP and enter the Cleveland Metroparks portion of the trail, it becomes paved.
