Routes / Ohio to Erie trail
« on: March 18, 2009, 01:35:47 pm »
I am planning a trip from Cleveland to Cinncinnati late this spring. I was hoping to take the Ohio to Erie trail. I'd like info on camping using the trail and what parts are still unfinished. Has anyone on this list riden this trail recently? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the advice. At 63 and new to touring I'm not sure what I'll need. I haven't started to train with the trailer and panniers. I've just been concerned with putting in the miles. Have 33 rides and 693 miles this year. All but three in April & May. My hope is to do 55-65 a day for 5 days then a rest day on tour. The prudent thing to do is wait until July to see where I'm at. Again thanks for the info.

 I have a KHS Hybrid (see link) that has a 28/38/48 crankset and a 11-32 cog. My question is, can I replace the 28T with a 24T or 22T and not have to make any other changes? I plan to have my LBS (small shop) do the work but should I purchase the needed parts? I would like to do a tour (Pittsburg to Wash. DC trail) late this summer with my son. I plan to pull a Nashbar trailer and install front panniers. I hope to stay under 55 lbs of gear. Any advice you might give will be greatly appreciated.
