Weekend Rides

Rittman Orchards
I went on a couple cool bike rides last weekend. On Friday night Ben, Ryan and I rode out to Bent Ladder at Rittman Orchards - it is a cidery on an absolutely beautiful farm. We were in time for a perfect sunset - and their hard cider is fantastic. On Sunday we rode out to Portage Lakes State Park and had a picnic and went for a swim. 
I always make a "summer list" and these were two things I get to check off.

Demo Derby Ride
Riding the the demolition Derby at the Summit County Fair is my small bicycle group's yearly party - we open the ride up to anyone(normally we are just a small group of friends that rides every Wednesday). We drink the over-priced awful beer, slam some fair food, and cheer like crazy.

Akron2Akron: Bikes Along the Towpath

So this one is obviously up my alley! Instead of the typical neighborhood walking tour we took the Towpath around town. Interesting stops and people as always!!

Rave on Main

Downtown Akron Partnership held a family friendly dance party at Cascade Plaza last night. I captured the fun for them, drank my first White Claw and Ben taught me how to line dance!

Christmas in July

Every year I shoot Akron Snow Angel's Christmas in July. In the cold months Snow Angel's pass out supplies to those who are in immediate need. This event is the day they do it over the summer. There are snack, haircuts, health check ups and more.

White Lighter and The Dreemers

White Lighter
White Lighter are a band of friends that I have known forever - The Dreemers are a band that I've more recently become friends with. Both are great. Here is some photos of them playing Musica.

Akron2Akron: South Akron

I was bummed to miss the last Akron2Akron - but I had a colleague photograph it for me. Anyways - this edition was in South Akron and was a good one since I had never been to most of the places that we visited and learned about.

Ohio to Erie

Ohio to Erie Trail
Over the 4th of July Ben, Erin and I rode the Ohio to Erie Trail from our doors to Cincinnati. We did it in four days - 312 miles. We camped two days, stayed with a friend one, and then an Air BnB in Cinci. A few friends joined us in the beginning - all the details follow below.

Touring Machine

A few of us are about to embark on a multiple day bike-packing adventure to Cincinnati on the Ohio to Erie Trail. This is my weapon of choice. The frame, fork and bars are my 1983 Trek 500 but all of the components and wheels I took from my 2007 Trek 1500. The goal is modern tech with that smooth, steel, vintage ride. Now that I have it loaded and photographed its time for the test ride!
