Can't wait.

I had a very good ride yesterday based on the Pomeroy Dash. Old SR33 is a little rough on the north end but is really nice once you cross into Meigs county. They are just finishing repaving most of SR143, so the pavement is perfect with just a little bit of scattered gravel. Like many of the roads that follow valley bottoms, the curves flow very nicely. I'll probably go back next year so I can spend more time in Pomeroy, it has the look of an old river town.

Had a great trip. The R90s performed flawlessly, as I would expect.

Highlights include the Triple Nickel Diner in Chesterhill, and the M&M Diner in Logan,

Going back in a few weeks to see the fall colors.

Just read the reviews and menu for the M&M diner. My kind of place. Officially on the list.

We stopped for dinner at the Old Town Diner in Laurelville. They has an excellent Friday night Rib Eye special. Liked the place so much we stopped for breakfast on the way back to Michigan and enjoyed that as well.

my .02 ... the SE Ohio area is rich with great roads with not a lot of traffic. For several years the club I used to belong to would make the trip down from Michigan Memorial Weekend and set up base camp at the Quality Inn in Marietta. We'd plan in advance different routes sometimes venturing into West Virginia or Kentucky. We always hit Rt 555 either on the way down or on the way back to Michigan. It was resurfaced a couple of years ago. We'd get dinner at The Boathouse BBQ in Marietta. Another good run is Rt 26 from Marietta up to Woodsfield, it has a couple of covered bridges.

Go to this website (windy9.com) and order the map. Mine came last week and it's in my tank bag. Very nicely done. I've ridden this area several times but not lately. Usually, we go over early Saturday, stay at the Hampton in Athens and do a walk around the Ohio U campus during the summer evenings.
