Ohio Motorcycle Trips and Events List

The Buckeye State offers a top quality collection of popular motorcycle roads and destinations among Midwestern states. Southeastern Ohio (OH) in particular is a motorcycle riding paradise filled with quaint country towns, hills, & twisty roads, many offering river hugging journeys. The northeastern portion of the state offers access to the 11th largest fresh water lake in the world - Lake Erie - with its 262 miles of Ohio shoreline. The rest of the Ohio offers motorcycle rides meandering through classic portraits of Midwest Americana.

Come a few days early and ride. We will be at the motel starting Wednesday. There will be lots of people around at the motel for socializing in the morning and later in the afternoon every day. Saturday Ride Description: Leisurely ride from Zanesville going East, through scenic winding back roads at times following a few rivers and lakes. Route will go around Seneca Lake & Dam, Wayne National Forest and along the Ohio River. Ending up in New Martinsville, WV for lunch at Quinet's Court Restaurant. The Court Restaurant has a home made lunch buffet (with home made deserts) for appx. $10.95. We will have a large private area set aside for our group. From there we will ride South along the Ohio River, then West into the National Forest on 260. Everyone is encouraged to only ride at their own pace through the curves. Then route 26 through the forest to the North side of Marietta, we will stop at a covered bridge on route 26 to give everyone a little break. Route from the Covered bridge South on Route 26 will be at your own pace, anyone wishing to ride at a faster pace will leave first. There will be lots of great curves and scenery to enjoy in this section ending up just north of Marietta. After taking a bypass on the north side of Marietta we will then take route 60 a short distance to the gas stop then up along the Muskingum River all the way back to Zanesville. Planned stops in this portion, Muskingum River locks #8. There is very little traffic on these roads on Saturday, making this a very enjoyable ride. This will be a 217 mile (total) ride. We will make appropriate gas and rest stops. There will be plenty of time for socializing. This is a good opportunity to take a nice ride, meet some new people, and possibly get away for a couple of days. Everyone is welcome, no matter what you ride. Best of all, this ride is free and does not cost anything except food and gas. If you only want to do the portion of the ride in the morning to the restaurant or the second half of the ride from the restaurant back, that is fine. We will be at the Court Restaurant at approximately 12:30 PM. In addition, see the SE Ohio Motorcycle Ride Guidelines Page. What to expect: A nice ride through some very scenic and even somewhat challenging roads. A great time and a chance to meet old friends and make a few new ones. Single riders are welcome (Male and Female), you will find this to be a very social ride and group. Do not worry about coming alone and not knowing anyone, that will change pretty quickly. We will block intersections. We also have people flagging at intersections that we can not block. All bikes are welcome, Teresa does ride in the back with a radio. There are also several clubs and many individuals that participate, so you will most likely see quite a few different bikes. We do go across the bridge into West Virginia for lunch, so helmets are required for this portion of the ride. The 2015 SE Ohio ride went very well with 90 bikes and 135 people on Saturday. We had a good mix of bikes and another great day. The restaurant could not have been better again. This will be our 14th year hosting this event and with the addition of Self Guided Rides again in 2016, we plan on making 2016 the best yet.
