Sorry to be late with this update – I tried earlier in the week but it didn’t go through.
I routed around one detour and added a couple of new wrinkles, and the route is ready to go! The farmers are out working the soil, truck farmers are planting vegetables, fruits trees are in blossom, and pollen is in the air. This entire route is on small back roads, all paved and in good condition. Riding small roads makes me feel more like I am part of the landscape I am riding through, and I get to see the less developed parts of the country. If you enjoy small roads you’ll like this route.
Just to be sure, we will meet at the Bob Evans in Brunswick off of I-71.
Here are the gps files for the main route, and the cross country short-cut from Baltic to I-77 at New Philadelphia:
