Ira road is fun too, black road by boston mills is fun lots of good quick roads back there sunday mornings virtually traffic free

Tried Route 59 first around the Ravena Arsenal. President hint then gave it away.

Town is Jefferson on Rt. 167. Small town to have such a cool chopper.

Thomas Jefferson third president. Author of the declaration of independence and quite an avid adventurer - well he funded Lewis and Clark's expedition - so maybe he was a wanna be.

I am sharing this tag with - GS N RVN, who accompanied me on the ride this evening. Thats him on the left. Yes I know - matching bikes

I need the weekend to come up with something worthy. Will post by Sunday evening.

Great ride with Bumknee out to Jefferson. The ride home along I-90 was faster but not as much fun as the long way. Good thing that I-90 has a lot of exits with gas stations.... my fuel gauge was begging for fuel.

Finally, I thought I was going to have to tag that one myself!
Maybe I put that one too far into the far corner of the state.

I'm in

Just moved here a few weeks ago from MN (temporarily in Mayfield Heights until I find a permanent home in the area) with my KLR. I'll see if I can figure out this tag thing - before I get killed commuting down cedar avenue

owning a KLR you'll certainly enjoy the low cost of living in NEO

Welcome to the mountains. Nice to see someone coming to Cleveland for warmer weather.

You are going the wrong way on Cedar (head EAST and get out of town), although you can certainly find adventure on Cedar between 55th and the Clinic.

Check out South Park to North Park all the way to University Circle (pick it up at Warrensville) for your commute some time. Nice change of scenery.

thanks for the tip. I'll check it out on the way in tomorrow. I was kind of concerned that I had the wrong bike for the riding I would be doing down here, but I now see that I probably could not get through most of cleveland without a DS

Ack! Suburban Hell !
Head east on Gates Mills Blvd., take a right on Old Mill, another right on River, this will be your salvation...

OK, Here's one for ya

Built in 1840. Serverd as access to only one farm in the area. Destroyed and rebuilt in 1913, 1970, and rebuilt again in 1975. Only foot access now.
It is in the Ohio Western Reserve. It fords the Furnace Run.
