I just read on the homepage about "Ohio's Tripple Nickle". This is indeed a challanging and fun road to ride. I was just over that way yesterday and rode part of 555. In my opinion, there is a better road that crosses 555. It is SR 78, running East/West from the town of Glouster Ohio on the west end to McConnlesville on the East. 78 actually goes further east, but I have not explored that yet. When we rode 78 yesterday, is was freshly paved and painted, very clean and free of gravel. The road is a really fun ride with similer twists, turns, ups and downs like 555 but not quite as tight. The section from Glouster to McConnlesville is about 22 miles and is worth the ride....besides, if you're doing 555, what's another 22 miles...besides, if you are going to Burr Oak Lake, 78 will take you straight to the lodge!
