2012 Leaf Peepers – Saturday October 13th.


Same great route, rest stops, sag support, volunteers and end of ride meal – but why not improve the 2012 edition?
1) Food Stop Competition – We will have food competition between the rest stops, so this year you will not have to wait until the end of the ride to enjoy hot and hearty soup. This is for family pride, so you know that you will be treated extra special all along the ride. Your rankings at the end of the ride determine the winning group.
2) King and Queen of the Mountain Competition – To enter, use your GPS device to record your ride, upload your results to STRAVA. There will be 4 climb segments that will be used to determine King and Queen of the Mountain winners – plus all entered riders will be ranked in the final results.
Metric+ Century – Beautiful long route for the 2012 Leaf Peeper Tour is the same route that got rave reviews from the riders. 
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 you 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 Half Century – Shorter option allows riders enjoy the peak leaf season with less miles and a less hills.
Low traffic route out of Nelsonville, leads to the gradual climb up to Murrey City. The route splits with a left turn, you are in the forest for the next 6 miles gradually climbing 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.
