Anyone interested in doing a loop around the Thumb over a weekend?

Hey so I'm looking at maying doing a ride around the thumb some weeeking in the near future, and I was wondering if any of you would be interested in doing the ride as well.

This is the rough idea of the route I was thinking. It follows the shoreline the whole way. The Lighthouse Park has cabins that sleep 4 - 6 people and it's only $50 for the night, so it's pretty cheap.

I'm kinda looking at sometime in August. If you're interested in doing this ride chime in with your thoughts.

sounds like fun! but for me to go.....it would take me around 5 hrs of hauling ass on the freeway (not very free, damn troll roads!) just to get to the starting point "Brandenburg Park".

besides, I need one more "thing" going on in August like I need a hole in my head! lol doh!

if it goes vroom or boom, I LIKE IT!

You could always just teleport. Hey how close are you to Bay View, OH River? I did a ride down there a few weeks back and might be down to heading that way again.

are talking about the place right between Port Clinton,OH and Sandusky,OH. ?

Yeah it's just north of Sandusky. Sadly this weekend I'm not going to be able to ride down that way, as I already have plans and funds are tight at the moment. But maybe we can meet up down there one weekend soon, since you are not too far.

yup. I just looked at the map, we will be at "Margaritaville" which is not far from Bay view, Oh. it's just down the road.

oh, by the way, that's not the Ohio river, it's Lake Erie. just so you know.

Oh the "Margaritaville" is right down the road from where I went last time.

Oh and for the record the Ohio River part was a typo, stupid auto correct.
