Huron, OH to Cleveland Route?

Anyone out there have a preferred route from Huron, OH to the West side of Cleveland / Lakewood, OH?

I'm looking for an alternative to US 6-W (Cleveland Rd > Lake > Liberty > Erie Ave > Lake), which has some good parts, but the bad parts seem to out-weigh them on that section.

Is there a nicer (less high speed traffic / strip malls) route just a little to the south? Say, mostly keeping north of I-80/90?

You could follow the MS 150 route, goes a little further south than I-80, but is on lesser traveled roads. I see if I can find an old cue sheet.

Going west to east leaves few options between Huron and Lakewood.
Maybe the Lorain Wheelmen know a alt. zig-zag route?

Thanks - I think I'm using part of a MS 150 route between Sandusky and Huron. It's quite nice!

Unfortunately, the MS 150 then drops down too far south for my needs.

Guess I'll have to actually get out there to scout some more routes! I'm currently looking at a Huron-Amherst-Sheffield-Lakewood route. Hopefully there's something in there that's worth riding.

Too bad those rail lines are actually still in use...

Does anyone have a good source for bike-friendly maps of Erie County, OH? The NOACA maps stop at Lorain County.
