We left Burton, which one of the historical markers described as a perfect replica of a New England town, in a slight mist. Heading west, we saw some beautiful and extremely wealthy parts of Ohio: Chagrin Falls, Shaker Heights, to name a couple. We struggled up and down the rolling hills.
We met our college friend, Judy, and her sister, Carol, for coffee/lunch.
They brought us good terrain and weather karma, the sun came out and it was downhill all the way to Cleveland.
Beautiful roads and bike paths all the way to the lake front. We loved Rockefeller Park and the city parks.
We finally connected with the Adventure Cycling Association's Northern Tier route. The sun was so bright and the paper so slick that Marie's pink shirt reflected on the map.
Approaching downtown along the waterfront.
We were surprised by the sandy beaches.
Looking back at the Cleveland skyline.
As the day wore on, we decided we should locate a place to stay tonight. Roy started calling hotels to no avail. Apparently, sports fans from all over the country want to stay in Cleveland this week. We ended up riding further than we intended to find a Days Inn in Amherst.
