As stated in my previous blog post, we spent the past weekend in Hudson, Ohio. We went for a short morning bicycle ride and hoped to go on a longer ride on the 81-mile Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail that runs through Cuyohoga Valley National Park. About 21 miles of the 81-mile trail runs through the park.
The last weekend of summer was certainly a hot one. It was too hot for Bob and me to enjoy a bicycle ride on Saturday afternoon. We did, however, go on a shorter ride that evening on the canal towpath trail, when the temperature dropped to a more comfortable level.
We chose to begin our ride at the Beaver Marsh (Ira trailhead).
The Ira trailhead has statues that we had not seen on previous visits to Beaver Marsh.
As you can see, we were losing daylight.
We added only 3 miles (round trip) to our bicycle odometers. We rode from Beaver Marsh to Szalay’s Market (the Everett trailhead) and back.
