I left the group at Concord Road to ride back to Granville, finishing with 54 miles. The front of the A group was coming the opposite direction and still quite a few cyclists holding in, probably about 12. They finished with a 24.2 avg which is very good, considering the strong winds out of the NW.
This Saturday is the infamous Hellacious Hills ride, beginning at 8:00am from Cyclist Connection. Check out these routes and note too, the finest map you shall ever see will be given at the start, free with marked roads too....WOW, Silent Dave, the ride leader is someone special.
Lastly, approaching rapidly is Bike-Ohio's "The Frank" on Aug. 23rd. The Frank - Aug. 23, Malabar Farm State Park, Bellville Oh
This ride is all about climbing. The 100 mile route has 10,600 feet of climbing. The 74 mile route has over 8,400. This ride does not have the biggest or steepest hills in Ohio but the hills are relentless. Not only is it the hardest fully supported one day tour in Ohio, it will be the hardest paved road century ride in Ohio you have ever done.https://bike-ohio.wildapricot.org/ironsaddle/
