    Hello,

    Since I got my new bike recently, I was wondering if anyone knew of any good roads or locations to ride? I would prefer somewhere with less traffic and some winding roads.

    Thanks!

    take 23 north to state route 37 north

    you’ll go through a bunch of little towns and end up on route 15 just outside findlay

    lots of twists and turns,a good fun ride.

    Nah, take 315 north to its end at 23, then take that north to 42. Then go southwest on 42 to the Scioto and then back south on either 257 on the east side or 745 on the west – more reservoir views along 257 plus many city park areas where you can pull off.

    There’s some good roads near the far eastern end of Morse Rd. in Licking County. That part of Morse sure isn’t like what most people think of when they hear “Morse Road”.

    An OK quickie when you’re on the Far East Side is taking Noe-Bixby from Broad to Livingston. Nothing mind-blowing, but that’s Columbus for you.

    Was going to say Riverside Drive from Dublin to 42, but 315 is a great addition to this.

    i don’t know that central ohio offers any decent riding, but much of southern and eastern ohio sure does!

    Try taking Rt. 42 southwest if you’re going to anywhere around Cinci. No Ikea furniture on the back of the bike please. Coming back, you could take 68 north through Yellow Springs, to 40 back to Columbus.

    LoopBackroads specializes in out-of-the-way daytrips
    BUSINESS PROFILES — BY MELANIE MCINTYRE

    Robert Denhard has a passion for exploring, discovering, and learning about new things, and he wanted to use that passion to make a difference. With LoopBackroads, it’s arguable he’s doing just that.

    LoopBackroads, the startup Denhard launched this month, maps out daytrips (or “loops”) for those looking for adventures off the beaten path. One way LoopBackroads hopes to make a positive impact is by encouraging travelers to patronize the mom-and-pop shops that are the heart and soul of so many small towns.

    Necropost, but still!

    Just drove all around 328, 93, 278, 56, 50, etc in the Hocking/Zalesky Forest area – saw a lot of people on bikes that looked like they were having a blast. The roads are nicely paved and many of the corners are banked. And, it’s gorgeous scenery.
