So 78 and 536 are in the same area? Cool

Hey Morpheus & Weas...up for a road trip?

There is a lot of gravel. But then that's what make Ohio's roads so challenging. Gravel and blind hills. :smt055 Rt.556 is nearby. It intersects 78 and runs to the river. The last time I rode it was freshly paved. If you haven't been to the southeast part of Ohio then I think you need a road trip.

Great roads!! 556 and 536, are both newly paved roads. Lots of blind turns and gravel in the right handers. Ride them 3 or 4 times in a row and you will be pretty tired. Have fun and pay attention. Some of the turns can bite you, just like the Dragon in NC/TN.

Default brief Rt. 536 video

Here's a link to a 2.5 minute video of Rt. 536 a friend shot this summer.

This is definitely one of the more entertaining roads in this area. While this video is brief, imagine this type of fun going on for 10 miles. Enjoy!



BTW... the video labeled Sideshow Corner on Matt's videos is a video of Rt. 556.... just a few miles up the road from Rt. 536. Check it out too.

Both of those roads are awesome! Looks like you know them pretty well. I make it up there 3-4 times a year to run them . Fun!! Nice videos. Looks like you need to take it to the track though.
