Yes!

120 miles is not as bad as it sounds. Ride down to Dayton Friday morning, spend the day. Cincy Saturday, return Sunday. Recuperate Monday!

Just remember these three things:

1) Stay off the roads...unless you can do 55 mph.
2) You are not, and never will be, Lance Armstrong.

Just remember these three things:

1) Too chicken for 55 mph roads;
2) Lance Armstrong has one testicle - don't want to be him;
3) My bike short wearing days are long gone but some of those bike outfits don't look so bad..

Those were meant as general tips for all cyclists.
But I'm glad to see you're exercising your common sense, Bob.

You really think you're coming back from Cincy in one day? You're going to average 15 mph for eight hours non-stop? At age 50?

They should allow 4-wheelers and dirt bikes, since they allow bums with shopping carts.

@George - I've done 50-ish regularly on some of my Sundays. I could do 100. The day after is the problem.

... Thinking about this a little more, 100 miles gets me to where? Grove City or London (I think that's where you pick up the trail). Maybe someone can pick me up.

But then again, there are going to be hills ...

A buddy of mine rides his bike down to see his inlaws. Wife picks him up in Loveland and they go to their destination.

Is prairie grass trail off 42(outside of London), part of that same path? Which I think is also connected to the Alkire & Gardner Rd. trail too.

They tear up 4 or more roads right next to the 1 they're "fixing".
