I just wanted to throw out an open invite to readers who are in, or may find themselves in, the Cleveland area next Sunday. Myself and a few friends will be doing a ride along the Ohio Erie Canal Towpath next Sunday, September 28, at 10:00AM. We will ride from the Rockside station at 7900 Old Rockside Rd., Independence, OH 44131 at about 10:00am. It will be a 20 mile trail (paved, and packed crushed limestone, I've seen people do road bikes, I prefer something more burly) south to Akron, where we will take a break for lunch and, very likely, a couple of beers. If you want to ride back, you can take the 20 mile trail back north to Rockside. If you don't want to, or enjoy a couple too many beers, you can hop a ride on the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad. The Scenic railroad will allow you to ride aboard the train for only $2, one way, with a bike. The usual fare is $15, so this is a deal, and ordinarily you can't bring your bike.
If you are interested in coming, comment here, or contact me via the "contact me" button on the top of the right hand sidebar. I'll get with you on directions and the like.
Also, crazy half cocked idea that I will touch on more soon. Bluenoser said something that got me going off on a crazy thought. We should try and figure out a way to have a once a year blogger ride. We could jump around cities, one city every summer, so that any bloggers who would like could get together and ride together. Like I said, I'll touch on this more in the future.
