Written Directions

Starting in Columbus, just off of 270, take the 315 North exit. Follow 315 until you get to route 23 in Delaware.

Scenery

Great view of the Olentangy River during most of the trip. You will also find some older riverfront homes and the possibility of spotting a bald eagle, they nest along the river.

Drive Enjoyment

This road is in overall good shape. Lots of shade and the river provide an excellent level of comfort on hot days. A few twisties here and there will entertain most. Watch out for deer and have fun!

Tourism Opportunities

Near the Delaware end you will find a place called Gabbys - they have awesome Stromboli and cold drinks. Gabbys sits at the corner of Bunty Station and 315.

All the reviews are correct concerning Rt 315. I take it to breakfast in Delaware.
There was someting that was not mentioned.
TRAFFIC. 315 is a commuter route. You will need to pick the right time of day, and day of the week. Having said that it is my choice route in Columbus.

This is a beautiful tree covered road that follows along the Olentangy River. When riding north on this route, you have the beautiful scenery of the river right to your right which means very few hazards to watch out for (ie. hidden driveways and blind corners). Heading South on this route I would advise being a little more cautious as the majority of the houses along this route have very hard to exit driveways which means you will be harder to spot going through the twists and turns.

There is a gas station at the south end of this route just before the road turns into the highway part of 315, and there is also another gas station at the North end of the route, just past 23.

This is a fast paced road, and as a person who is newer to the sport, a nice beginner road for twisties. There are a lot of smooth and sloping banked curves which allow you to practice cornering. However the speed limit is 45mph on the road and I found with my bike and skill set I was able to stay in 5th or 6th gear and take most, if not all of the turns at full pace without having to shift gears.

Overall this is an excellent drive that I would reccommend to anyone to drive at least a few times. It is a nice short, relaxing ride for after a day at work or on a sunny weekend.

micro1331 and J.D. pretty much pinned this one. Beautiful route, with a few twisties (should be good for beginners). There is generally a good amount of traffic, so I wouldn't run it too quickly.
