It’s time to plan some adventures for 2018! I have come up with four bike tours for 2018. I hope to make all of them happen!
Steel City Loop
This is about an 82 mile loop around the city of Pittsburgh. It will incorporate the Montour Trail, Three Rivers Heritage Trail, the Great Allegheny Passage Trail, and a little road riding. I could do this all in one day, but I may make a two day ride so I can stop and sight see around the trail. I hope to do this in the early springtime, maybe April.
Ohio to Erie Trail
The Ohio to Erie Trail goes from Cincinnati to Cleveland, 326 miles. I am going to ride this in the spring quarter before it gets too hot here in Ohio. I don’t know yet how many days I will take or which direction I will bike.
North Bend Trail is a trail located in northern West Virginia, spanning from Parkersburg to Clarksburg, 72 miles. From what I have read, it’s a rather rough trail. I am planning on riding the fat bike on this trail.
I am planning on doing this in two days so I am not too rushed. Given that some of the trail has mud sections, I am planning on riding this trail in midsummer when the mud should be dried out.
Greenbrier River Trail
Greenbrier River Trail is in southern West Virginia, 78 miles long. It appears that the trail has been repaired after the big floods that occurred. This is more of a tentative plan, as the drive would be five or six hours to get to that corner of the state. But wouldn’t it be awesome to ride in October in the peak of fall foliage?
Any long bike trails you can recommend to me? Most of these are planned due to they are the closest to drive to, but I am always up for new ideas!
