Cool The Triple Nickel - Rt 555, "Ohio Dragon's Tail"

Enough threadjacking Kanuck's video post ...

Thought I might be the first to video this road, ha! Many pages of results....
http://www.youtube.com/results?searc...be.ltNoygkD9yM

The whole route in 8 min time lapse. The video doesn't really capture the twists and elevation changes, but most riders can get a feel. From Kanuck's end at Zanesville to my end at US50/Ohio Rt 7 at Little Hocking: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rAViB_hGxc

If you get this far, turn left at the stop sign at the end, go 1/2 mile to the next exit right and follow US50 to the new Corridor D bridge, the newest, longest, flattest, smoothest bridge over the Ohio river and Blennerhassett Island which then spits you off into the smooth and twisty roller coaster slab called Corridor D. You might also want to stop at Fort Boreman Park a couple of miles from the Corridor D/Blennerhassett bridge.

Now that sounds like one I'm going to have to do.
I've never ran to whole length of the triple nickle.
Corridor D. Sounds interesting.

It's all fun for me. The corridor runs a few miles then crosses I-77 to US50, and then the possibilities are endless. I'd have a hard time telling you which turns to take next, but I know where some of the new pavement is around here.

One of the bridges in the Ft. Boreman pic leads to Rt.14 North, which turns into 7 lanes of the busiest road in the state of WV. About that time the James Bond theme starts on my pod. Let the stoplight drags and dodgem' begin! lol All those mall shoppers, ya know.

I can PM my cell number, any time it's not too cold or wet .... The rut is starting and the cornfields are full of deer herds, heads up.

well, this is what I can tell you about the "Triple Nickle"......from Zanesville, Ohio, to Little Hocking, Ohio, it's around 65 miles and would be around an 1 1/2 hr ride. so, an 8 minute video is just got to be some of the high lights. lol

also, from Zanesville, to little Hocking, that is were all best roads for riding are at! you would be hard pressed to find better roads anywhere else in this state.

if it goes vroom or boom, I LIKE IT!

Yeah, it's time lapse. My friend's place is right at 8:00, but is between frames and you don't see it, and it's a good ten miles from my end of 555. Didn't know how lucky I was, I have to go that way all the time.

Rt 124 and Rt 144 at/near Little Hocking along the Ohio should be awesome if it's still in good shape. Haven't been through there for a while. So close to the water, it's in the water sometimes.

Cool

Done. PM sent. Use those numbers too, if you're ever stuck over this way, have trailer, will travel.

Cell service is sketchy on 555, have to get on a hilltop farm. I lose service about 3 miles out 555.
