Item description for Motorcycling Across Ohio by William Murphy...

Motorcycling Across Ohio: A Guide by William Murphy covers the ground, high and low, top to bottom, in this ambitious guide for the adventurous motorcyclist. Ohio, located in the heart of the nation, is also the heart of the nation's history and Bill points out hundreds of historic sites, museums, and monuments all on the backroads. Bill purposely devised tours that take the rider down these history-filled roads that started out as trails, such as the Sandusky Trail, the Bullskin Trace, Hull s Trace, and more. Each Chapter has a theme such as Following the Water, which includes routes titled The Great River Road, Lake Eire Tour, The Lake Eire Scenic Byway, and Cayahoga Valley Canals Murphy s explains his enthusiasm and philosophy for wandering: "I suppose there is a bit of a Kerouac-like romanticism and searching for the meaning of life in most motorcyclists. As was the case with Jack Kerouac in his essay, On The Road, motorcyclists today also seek and enjoy the adventure that being on the road brings. Whether a teenager on a crotch rocket or septuagenarians on full dressers, every biker finds adventure by being on the road while at the same time satisfying a hard-to-explain need to explore beyond familiar horizons, be they physical or mental." Maps, mileage charts, and an appendix filled with emergency phone numbers, major hotel and motel phone numbers, motorcycle repair shops and dealers phone numbers, and a few pages of fun local rides, makes this compendium indispensable for the back road tourist, either on two wheels or four.

Reviews - What do customers think about Motorcycling Across Ohio?

This is not a travel guide  Aug 20, 2008
I've read and used the book to discover new things about Ohio while riding my motorcycle. I've had the wonderful experience of spending a fair amount of time with the author. He is a unique meticulous individual who has taken an approach to publishing a motorcycling book that has not been done before. If you want to buy a book that hits all the "points of interest" buy a travel book, there are many. If you want a book that discusses the history, uniqueness, and that also takes you down the best motorcycling roads then buy this one as well as the books on Mich. and Indiana. I own all three and would not trade them.
Motorcycling Across Ohio  Mar 8, 2007
It's going to be a very handy guide. He shows many off the beaten path sites and activities of which I was unaware and I've been in Ohio for 25 years! It will be well used this summer.
