Mar. 24/25 ADV Ride Hocking

Recommended Posts

Might try to do a mid day ADV loop around the area on this Tue or Wed. looks warm with slight chance of rain. Will stay east of SR33 due to flooding.

one stop crossing at 664/37 Bremen, OH is a good start with fuel. 120-150 mile, mixed gravel, Chip/seal, asphalt. Big Bike friendly. Must get out and ride before the GOV orders us to stay home or else!!!

Is this a good beginner route?

Normally,  I would say yes, 90/10 tire doable when dry but with all of this rain we have been having and the increased 4wd vehicle traffic rutting up the two track roads it may be somewhat difficult in some dirtier sections. I have not been out on the back-roads yet this year so could be some winter wash outs also. As soon as this weather dry's up I am happy to post up some ride's that you will be able to enjoy and build on your ADV style. The Trans Ohio Trail route is very big bike beginner friendly and the section above I70 are in areas that you have most likely blasted thru on the street. Also June 7th. check this ADV ride out: http://hockingvalleymc.com/ Great way to find routes and build on skills.Your high level of Street Skills will transfer with a few tweaks and you will be enjoying even more back roads in the great mid west Motorcycle area. Stay Tune my friend.

motorcycling burns calories. It is an outdoor activity.

Is it Anakee 3 friendly, though?

I am not personally familiar with Ank 3's. I did run Metzeler Tourance 90/10's  for 10 years and I would say yes to a 90/10 tire for this. The roads are all Gravel, Chip/Seal and Asphalt. There are no Hero/Challenge or Hard section scheduled on a open to all ride. If we run into a flood/washout or rutted section we will stop and take a look. No one needs a trip to the ER during this time of the year. I have dismounted and walked my bike thru unknown shit a few times alone on occasion. No worries, No Judgment.There are many bail out points on the route and easy detours that can be used. Everyone is welcome to sign off and head home at any time. The folks that normally show up on my rides are very helpful and patient. Think about it, Your call. There will be more Dry day's ahead with DUST.
