Ride 9/29?

Recommended Posts

I am hoping to go riding, soon. The wife goes to her surgeon on Friday the 28th for her first post surgery appointment. Hoping to go riding Saturday, 9/29. Anybody interested in riding then?

No suggestions here really. I’m coming from way up in NEO. I’m used to riding a ways before I get to anything good. I’m game for whatever for the most part.

Have you decided where your going to ride to?

The weather isn’t looking good. 61 for a high. I am not sure if wife will be ready to be left alone.

I noticed the weather as well. I’m up in the air as well. I hope it comes around as Saturday gets closer.

That's perfect riding weather 

I’m thinking about getting out on the bike because of the weather. Looks perfect.

I'm thinking it might be a good day to ride as well. Thoughts?

Geez, still no plan?

How about this one? I'm from farther south and do not typically get this far north on a day ride. I know that you NEO guys hit these roads often, so please suggest something better. For Kent's benefit, I suggest that the route should be shortish and have options.

 

Start in New Philadelphia at the Sheets/Long John Silver parking lot on West High Ave. Arrive at 9:30. Drain the tank, fill the other tank, and be ready to depart at 10. Take 250 to Wheeling , then WV-88 to bypass the straights along the river. Continue on 250 to Cameron WV. Then return on 25 & 17 to Moundsville. Then 54 to 239 to 147 to 149 to 800 back to the Sheets in New Philly. WV-17, Fox Ridge Rd looks a bit narrow and rough on Google maps, but it's got a lot of curves and views.

That's about a 5-hr loop, probably less. Most of you guys that have chimed in will ride about 2 hours to get to and back from New Philly. Leave the house by 7:30, home by 5 - unless we have a meal at New Philly or along the route.

 

For a 6-hour loop, we could extend past Cameron to Hundred, WV, then take 7 back to New Martinsville, then 536 (yeah!) to 78 to Woodsfield to 800. Home by 6 or 7.

To make New Philly by 9:30 I would have to be on the road by 7:30. It will be too cold for my taste at that time. I am out.

My last trip was down WV250. I’m going to head towards Marietta is my guess if it’s not too cold. Have fun gentlemen.

Anybody else?

Would a later start be any better?
