Ohio Tour Day 5 - Columbus to Bellbrook

Max and I are here at the house where I grew up in Bellbrook, Ohio. My sister Mandy lives here.

We rode 69 miles to get here, on flat rail trails mostly, and into a headwind. We got off to a rough start, Max had sore legs, and was in a pit of despair, but it was nothing that a long break and some electrolytes (Skratch and a Clif shot) couldn't fix. We took it easy and made it just fine.

Here are the bikes on the patio behind the house. It's like a jungle.

This is one of our many breaks. I forget where this is, but it's a nice grain elevator, and I think we had some tasty ice cream just up the road.

Maybe it's South Charleston, Ohio. 

The grain elevator looks much bigger when you have a boy for scale.

The last stop before Mandy's was Xenia. Xenia once was the intersection of three different railroads. Now it is the intersection of three different bike trails. It's a big bike hub.

We are going to see if we can possibly find entertainment in Bellbrook tomorrow, and then continue our ride to Cincinnati the next day.

Here is the Strava track.
