Includes some high speed gravel in Noble Co, a couple tricky places in Washington, and lots of twisty, narrow gravel roads, several with grass in the middle.
More than everyone was thinking or about right?
Sounds great.

Did you route us through Marietta for lunch at the Brewery, or The Galley?

Should be fine on an old Trackmaster. I've rode the whole loop on Shinko 244s and have no skills. The creek crossings may be a little slick, but everything was really dry down here before this little bit of rain. Weather is looking good, 30% chance and high of 78.

Nope. 6 miles is a close as we get. There is a pizza place there. We can detour to Marietta & trade some gravel for pavement if the group wants to eat in Marietta though, I'm absolutely flexible.

There's a pretty good Mexican place in Marietta, as well. When I'm really hungry I could eat the fetstered anus of a 1 week old, bloated, road kill skunk in August, so I'm not real sensitive about cuisine. I was just thinking, we'll only lose 4-ish miles of gravel and pick up about 10 of pavement, so probably a good trade. Let's plan for that.

Not planning anything too crazy, just avoiding as much pavement as possible, Planning on going rain or shine as long as there's no thunderstorms at departure time. Figuring on leaving around 08:00ish so if there are any more folks from the Columbus area interested we can pick a place to meet up to ride out together.
It sure is. I've wondered if it didn't belong to an inmate at some point. Here's my write up on it so far.

Columbus people going to the little bike ride Saturday in Caldwell. I'm probably going to go 256 from pickerington to somerset, 22 from somerset to south zanesville, and 146 from south zanesville to Caldwell.

I haven't looked at timing or anything yet, but if anyone wants to meet up and ride together, we can find an east side meeting point and set a time tomorrow.
