Two retirees launch bike touring outfit in Ohio [BikingBis]

Retirement is a time when many active adults finally get the opportunity to spend more time on their bicycles, even taking an organized bike tour or two every summer.

For avid bicyclists Rod Hutton and Joe Florian, however, retirement is giving them a chance to organize and offer their own multi-day bicycle tours of scenic areas of Ohio through a company they recently formed.
That company is Buckeye Country Roads Bicycle Tours, and they plan to offer their first bicycle tour next summer — a 6-day ride called Amish Country Adventure.
When Rod contacted me about adding this first ride to the Multi-day Bicycle Tour listings at, I was curious what led them to launch a bicycle tour company.
