I would love to do that ride. A month earlier and I would still be there. Sept 2, no luck. I work in Athens for a couple of the summer months.

A map would be helpful on the site under "Route." I don't know where that city and region are.

It's near Columbus, Ohio. Perhaps if you contact the POC for the website maybe he will add more details to the website.

Anyone familiar with that area and the terrain? What kind of climbing might one encounter?

Someone wrote the following on the FB site.

Route planning is underway now and we are looking at the hills South of Columbus, OH. So far it looks like it is going to be flat at the start hilly in the middle then flat at the finish. Should be a challenging and scenic route.

So, the long route is a 200k?

Hmmm... A supported 200k. Seems wrong somehow. Can't put my finger on it.

draw a line from cleveland southwest to cincinnatti. anything to the east starts off rolling and will get steeper as one approaches the ohio river. to the west of that line things are pretty darn (that's what we say in ohio) flat.

....a 100K ride is 62miles, so it'd be 124miles for 200K.
