Fairlawn, Oh

I will be in Fairlawn, Oh for 2 weeks. I was wondering if anyone is in the area. Also looking at the map there are 2 parks not to far away. One to the east and one to the north. Are these parks level or hilly?

Thanks for the help and info.

To the east is the Cuyahoga Valley National Park:
https://www.nps.gov/cuva/index.htm
Once in the park the road is level. There are long hills into the park.

To the west is flat farmland.

I live in Columbus now but I grew up in bath, which is very close to fairlawn. I would definitely recommend the towpath at Cuyahoga Valley National Park! It's a crushed limestone trail that is fairly flat. Really pretty too! Peninsula and ira road are two of my favorite places to start. I was just there last weekend and had a blast.

Did 20 miles on the tow path. Started at the south end at mm30 then went north to mm20. I was feeling really good at the 5 mile point and thought what the hell I will do 10 each way. At the 10 mile mark I started to feel a little weak. I forgot to bring my camel back on the trip so I had nothing to drink. Luckily there is a little shop between mm22 and 21. I stopped and ate and drank. The rest of the trip was without incident. I went for spinning instead of speed since it has been 2 plus years since i rode any kind of mileage.

Now it is time for some of tjat world famous Chinese beer from Pennsylvania.
