Road Conditions in Ohio
« on: March 05, 2010, 01:03:19 am »
I did the UGRR route last summer and i loved it! The route was great and the maps are great, but I did find one minor issue with some of the information on the maps. Under the "Riding Conditions" Section on section 4 (Milford, Ohio to Erie, Pennsylvania) The first sentence reads as follows:

"The majority of the roads on this section in Ohio are rural in nature and tend to be excellent for bike touring, with smooth, high quality blacktop."

They were definitely rural in nature, and they were very scenic, but they are in no way smooth and i don't recall anything that I would classify as "high quality blacktop". The roads in Ohio were without a doubt the worst on the entire route. Full of holes and cracks, and many times resembling hard packed gravel more so than asphalt. I hope that phrase will be removed from subsequent printings of these maps. It isn't a huge deal I suppose, but it is more than a little misleading!

Does anyone else who has ridden this route have any thoughts?

If you haven't already done so, be sure to fill out a map correction form.
