Thought I'd get this out there. Edit Sunday June 11th My Bad!

Ok the plan is to meet at the Pilot gas station, at Nadeau Road exit 18 off 75 and leave at 11:00 and head to Tony Packo's for lunch.

We should be leaving Tony Packos around 1:00 and head West on the South side of the Maumee River out to either Grand Rapids or Napoleon depending on time (I will have a better feel for how long this is going to take after May 30th).

Cross the river at either of the two cities and head East on the North side of the river for our return.

All are welcome.

Regards,
Steve

What are you estimating is the trip mileage? This sounds like a good ride, I have never done this before.

From looking on the map it is a pretty big river. Are you going stick aroud Toledo and go south, or are you planning on going north back to Michigan?

Was a joke aimed at Headlight. I think he has changed about every ride date this year 2 or 3 times now due to other events going on.:D

My Bad

This was totally my bad.

I had scheduled the ride with Headlight for the 11th then lost my mind for a day and posted up the 10th. Monday was a crazy day all around.

Hope to see you all on the 11th.

mmmm Tony Packo's!

Maumee River Ride Update

OK, let me get this out there too, if anyone just wants to come for just the lunch and not the whole ride thing that is fine. Tony Packo's opens at 11:30 on Sunday.

We will leave Pilot at 11:00.

Total mileage for the trip is 75 miles from the Pilot Truck Stop (remember to use the center entrance the other two are for Trucks Only) to Nepoleon OH (so I guess the total mileage would be 150 miles).

We will stop at a park (It is the Jane Thurston Park) just outside Grand Rapids, OH and make the call if we want to continue on to Nepoleon.

The only thing we will miss not going to Nepoleon is the Giant Campbell's Tomato Soup can (photo op) at their factory just outside Nepoleon, and a gas station to fill up just before we cross the Maumee River for the return trip.

There is also a park off US24, Provident Dam Park (14 miles outside Nepoleon) that was a worthwhile stop. We may be able to hit that after crossing the river at Grand Rapids and going West about 2 miles.

Total time was 6 1/2 hours with all the stops and eating at Tony Packo's. Total time was from Pilot to home.

Also, just in case anyone wanted to wade/swim in the Maumee I would bring some spare shoes that you would not mind getting wet.

This is a rain or shine event, so keep the ride on.

ALL are Welcome.

Look forward to seeing you on Sunday,
Steve

Meet to ride to Pilot

If any one is interested in meeting at the Starbuck/Einstein Bagel on the Northwest corner of 12 Mile and Orchard Lake to leave at 9:30AM Post up and let me know.

We could head over 696 to 275 and down.

I know that 75 is the most direct route for most of you.

Also, a couple of quick notes, if anyone is interested in removing their helmet once we enter Ohio let me know at the Pilot. There is a car dealer in Point Place that we can do that. Also the entrance for Exit 18 Nadeau Road is immediately after the concrete retaining wall in the construction area on 75.

See you Sunday,
Steve
