You say you’re a cyclist who prefers getting off the highway and into the peace and quiet of a tree-lined, riverside rail-trail? Then this fully supported and catered weeklong tour just may be your ticket to ride.
First off, we’ll traverse the Little Miami Scenic Trail, considered the crown jewel of Buckeye State rail-trails. The 75-mile paved path links the eastern edge of Cincinnati with Springfield, situated a dozen towns and four counties to the north. Stately communities, picturesque state parks, a variety of wildlife habitats, and bridges both old and new are ours to behold as we roll along the gentle trail.
Additionally, we’ll take on the Ohio to Erie Trail, which, when completed, will link the major cities of Cincinnati, Columbus, and Cleveland. The route takes in portions of Adventure Cycling’s Underground Railroad Bicycle Route, where we’ll visit Wilberforce, home to the oldest private African-American college in the U.S.
