Riding SE Ohio

Looking for info on roads to ride and places to see and eat. We will be based out of the cambridge area in mid september for 5 days. One day we will ride up to the berlin area, and another day we will ride the triple nickel.

Routes 78,26, and 550 are a few of my favs....I don't care for 555, too many turns right after the cresting hills and you can't tell which direction it goes

I don't know how triple nickle is right now. I haven't ridden it in years. I was told a year or two ago they chip and sealed parts of it. I hope the gravel has gone by now. One of my favorite roads is 26 out of Marietta.


It is a little far from where you are going to be staying but!!!! If you find your way to Portsmouth Ohio. There is a place called the Scioto Ribber. It would most likely be the best ribe-eye you have ever had. A small rib-eye is 16OZ and they are all cooked over an open hickory fire. There are guys from this forum that try to come here once a year from WI, IN, MA, and even ONT. It's probably about 3 hours from the Cambridge area.

You are in descent area for Ohio (Not like W Virginia ,or N Carolina) I like 26 also and 800 in Wayne National Forest. Trees and curves Not sure on food or things to do there.look up Windy9 in Ohio They will send you a map of some rides with lunch stops and attractions along routes . Some will take you into McConnelsville which has a Boondocks BBQ that a few people on this board like to visit . If you end up in Hocking Hills go on a weekday . Way less traffic . Wife and I like to eat at Lake Hope state lodge and sit out on the deck. Watch out for the road apples in Berlin and don't swallow any bugs that may have been guarding those apples . Have fun.

If You make it to Jackson you need to stop at Micheal's and get one of their famous ice cream Bubbles.

The fact that there is a highway to he** but only a stairway to Heaven says a lot about the anticipated traffic volume....

Route 83, 78, 800, 148, 7, 536, 78 Lori's restaurant Caldwell. Route 26 not a favorite of mine, to rough and to narrow on east end.

Route 83, 78, 13, 56, 664, 374, 180, 159 Old Canal Smokehouse in Chillicothe.

Route 83, 541, 93, 39 Amish Country. I prefer Mrs. Yoders Kitchen in Mt. Hope on county 77.

Route 83, 585 Smithville to The Barn Restaurant.

Don't miss the Augusta Ferry at Higginsport. Beautiful area roads and the crossing the river on a ferry is absolutely COOL!!

Pearl Hot Rod Yeller is the fastest, gets better mileage, attracts fewer bugs, better looking owners, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc. Must be true; you read it here!!
