With hail hitting the windows, here’s another load-up-the-van daydream, this time over the Easter long weekend…
It’s up in the teens Celsius in Cincinnati, and it’s close by, less than eight hours away. If I’d have gone to work on Thursday with the bike loaded up in the van, I could have been on my way by 3:30pm and feet up in a hotel on the Ohio River before midnight. The next morning I’d be exploring what looks like a plethora of interesting routes up and down the River on the Kentucky side, all in mid-teens temperatures.
Spoiled for choice:
- The Rabbit Hash Ride
- Big Lick: Ride the Ohio River
- Madison to Louisville: 18 Mile Creek Ride
- Southeastern Indiana Ohio River Ride
- Eastern Indiana Canal Loop
Cincinnati is so close I could finish up with a short ride Monday morning and be on the road about noon, which would get me back up into the still frozen north by eight in the evening.
