You might think that Western Ohio is just corn fields and small towns, but it has a wealth of interesting history and great (flat!) riding. The six days of touring will include possible stops at Fort Recovery, Grand Lake, Neil Armstrong Air and Space Museum, the Erie - Ohio Canal, the Bicycle Museum of America, the Air Force Museum of America and the Wright Brothers Bicycle Shop / Aviation Museum. We will have the opportunity to see all of this in six days of riding on mostly low traffic and flat roads.
This tour is a semi-fixed base ride. We will start in Dayton Ohio (Huber Heights) and end in Sidney Ohio (close to the start location). We will stay in Dayton for the first two nights, Greenville for one night, Celina for two nights, then Sidney for one night, then back to Huber Heights.
