Overview

North Central Ohio. Miles of rolling, rural roads with beautiful scenery ranging from pastoral farmland and forest to nautical Lake Erie shoreline. Route highlights local history (Underground Railroad), culture, arts and healthy food options. Four wineries along the route. Route covers several small towns in Lorain County including Oberlin, Wellington, Vermilion and Avon Lake. Combine biking with a kayak trip on the Black River, hiking at Findley State Park.

Thanks for the review of the Back Roads and Beaches bike route. You are right, there was a major detour during 2013 as the historical Dean Road bridge was repaired. The good news is that the bridge is now repaired and usable by cyclists, making...More
