Leaf Peepers 2011 is Saturday, October 15th


Metric+ Century – Beautiful long route for the 2011 Leaf Peeper Tour keeps all of the parts that got rave reviews and we made changes based on rider feedback ($35 per-registration, $45 day of event)
Low traffic route out of Nelsonville, leads to the gradual climb up to Murrey City, then into the Wayne forest over to Glouster, at Glouster your will be on the long and winding ride up to the Burr Oak rest stop. From Burr Oak the road rolls to Route 595, a left turn puts you on a very low traffic state highway where there are a few steep parts. After a short distance on 37 the you turn onto Portie Flamingo that winds through the back country and takes you to the Moxahala rest stop. A short downhill and back up onto Portie Flamingo and again rolling across the back country and a turn onto 93 and you are in Shawnee. A left turn, over a hill and the New Straitsville rest stop is waiting on you. A short section of 93 to Gore takes you to Gore-Greendale road and back into the forest. The rest of the ride is on great roads with low traffic over the last couple scenic miles and you will be back at Hocking College with home made Bean Soup, Cornbread and more treats for your end of ride meal.
Metric Century – Shorter option allows riders enjoy the peak leaf season with less miles and a less hills. ($25 per-registration, $35 day of event)
