The 11th Annual SE Ohio Motorcycle Ride will take place on August 11, 2013! Add it to your calendar!
Leisurely ride from Zanesville going East, through scenic winding back roads at times following a few rivers and lakes. Route will go around Seneca Lake & Dam, Wayne National Forest and along the Ohio River. Ending up in New Martinsville, WV for lunch at Quinet’s Court Restaurant.
The Court Restaurant has a home made lunch buffet (with home made deserts) for appx. $9.95, you can also get just the salad bar, or you can order a plate meal. We have people doing this ride now just to go to the restaurant. We will have a private area set aside for our group, the owners look forward to seeing us each year with all of the bikes.
From there we will ride South along the Ohio River, then West into the National Forest on 260. Everyone is encouraged to only ride at their own pace through the curves. Then route 26 through the forest to the North side of Marietta, we will stop at a covered bridge on route 26 to give everyone a little break. After taking a bypass on the north side of Marietta we will then take route 60 up along the Muskingum River all the way back to Zanesville. Planned stops in this portion, Gas Stop and Muskingum River locks #8.
There is very little traffic on these roads on Saturday, making this a very enjoyable ride.
This will be a 217 mile (total) ride. We will make appropriate gas and rest stops. There will be plenty of time for socializing. This is a good opportunity to take a nice ride, meet some new people, and possibly get away for a couple of days. Everyone is welcome, no matter what you ride. There will be door prizes to be given away. Best of all, this ride is free and does not cost anything except food and gas.
If you only want to do the portion of the ride in the morning to the restaurant or the second half of the ride from the restaurant back, that is fine. We will be at the Court Restaurant at approximately 12:30 PM.
