Good road routes near Cincinnati, OH

My wife and I will be in the area for eight days. We are stayin in Montgomery. We plan to do a lot of riding along the Miami River. I will be riding my hybrid with my wife. I am thinking about taking my road bike and setting aside a day to do a 60 to 80 mile ride on the road. Any suggestions on a route with good roads and light traffic. I can haul my bike to a good starting point.

The Great Miami River Trail. 86 miles long and very scenic this time of year.

My wife and I plan to ride that, but I am looking for a nice route on the road. Thanks, though.

There is always the Strava heat map: http://labs.strava.com/heatmap/#6/-1...0513/blue/bike
Just zoom to the area of interest and see what local riders use. Heat map is an over all compendium of
rides posted to Strava by users, and hence roads felt rideable by locals. It is a start.

As it pops up there are no labels, but toggle labels on to get road names etc, then cross ref with google maps.

Another option: http://www.cincinnaticycleclub.org/ridecalendar.html
