Routes / Suitability mapping?
« on: November 05, 2011, 10:11:11 pm »
There seems to be a push among many states to provide suitability mapping for cyclists. I wonder how many cyclists out there really want and use this type of information. I requested information from one of the states and received several nice maps for the whole state with color coding for suitability which was based on traffic counts and shoulder width. It was quite impressive and I'm sure took a bunch of time to gather this info, let alone the cost to print it.
After reviewing this information I looked closer and found that almost all of the suitability color coding was on state and sometimes federal highways. Since I don't like to ride highways unless it is the only way to get there they are gathering dust in the filing cabinet in the attic.
So what types of roads do people in this forum like to ride? Maybe I'm the oddball and the suitability maps are the answer to most cyclists dreams however if there are others out there that prefer the remote roads it'd be good to know.
Any responses either way would be appreciated!

Routes / Ohio River Crossing at Cincinnati
« on: April 18, 2011, 08:04:17 am »
Check out the new route from SE Indiana into Kentucky via Ohio using the Historical Anderson Ferry. The route is for the most part on remote roads with the exception of US50 for a few miles in Ohio. I try to keep the routes off of highways as much as possible however doing so on this route adds miles and elevation. Crossing from Ohio into Kentucky the route uses the historic Anderson Ferry West of Cincinnati. Further down the road SW of Burlington Kentucky there is an option of riding through Rabbit Hash along the Ohio River. It's both scenic and nostalgic. Camping is available at Big Bone Lick State Park and motels just off the route near Walton.

« on: January 18, 2010, 05:38:58 pm »
I'm selling a "travel" full suspension mountain bike size medium with 26" wheels which uses the same breakdown as the Tom Ritchey travel bikes and is full suspension with Rock Shock fork and rear shock, Avid BB7 disk brakes and Sram 9 shifting. Probably have around 20 miles on the bike and the case (included) has not been used. $1050.
Here's the site:
It is a Dahon bike designed by Joe Murray with Tom Ritchey licensed Break-Away features allowing for the travel size!


I bought the bike thinking I would take it when we travel and that just hasn't happened.

See this link for pics of bike and case:
