Well school is done for a bit (currently getting my masters) and I thought I would add to the Lake Erie Tri-State section.
What I figured we could do here is list good "rides" in this area. Not the Poker Runs or other group stuff coming up, but just nice roads or destinations that you and your other riders can pick up on a Saturday or Sunday and take a ride. Nothing organized.
One I did last year was Pennsylvania Rt. 19 from Mercer to Presque Isle State Park in Erie.
This is a nice route of rolling hills and farmland. Very rural other than going through Meadville and Erie. Plenty of one redlight towns on the way. Presque Isle is very picturesque and has lots of restaurants and attractions right there.
2-2.5 hr trip each way. Nice day long trip. Very low stress.
