Underground Railroad / Erie-Oberlin-Cleveland Loop Tour
« on: February 21, 2007, 03:14:56 pm »
This May, I'm planning a loop tour in northeast Ohio.  Starting in Erie PA, I plan to use the UGRR route to ride to Oberlin OH.  From Oberlin, I'm going to ride northeast to Cleveland.  From Cleveland, I'll return to Erie via the Northern Tier Route.  Does anyone know a good route for the leg of my trip from Oberlin to Cleveland?

Underground Railroad / Western Reserve Greenway
« on: January 03, 2006, 02:54:53 pm »
According to a recent article in the Youngstown Vindicator, twelve Underground Railroad historical markers are going to be installed along the Western Reserve Greenway this spring in Ashtabula, OH.  Should the Greenway be incorporated into the bicycle route?

Underground Railroad / Recent Book About Underground Railroad
« on: December 12, 2005, 02:30:54 pm »
In May of 2005, a new history book was released under the title "Bound for Canaan: The Underground Railroad and the War for the Soul of America."  The author is Fergus M. Bordewich.  I highly recommend this book to anyone researching the proposed bike route.  The paperback edition of the book is scheduled to be released in January or February of 2006.
