Fall Leaf Tour October 16th - From the mailbag Crook's Cycle Right

I road this route on Sunday and it winds around the Wayne Natl. forest on great roads with spectacular views. Part of this route also in on the "Rim of the World" route. October 16th a group of my relatives will be providing rest stops, route support and sag for donations. We are also mapping a shorter route for folks that don't want to go 67 miles. This is hilly, however I was surprised by lack of really challenging hills - there is one really hard one with many long gradual climbs that take you up for a great view of the forest. If you did Pelotonia 102 , you can do this ride. If you did Pelotonia 40, you will be able to do the short route. Look forward to riding with you in Oct. John
