Grain Elevator at Bellville, Ohio
On the last day of my extended weekend I decided to go for a midday ride on the B & O Trail. I always enjoy putting in a good effort aboard the road bike especially a day or two after a long recumbent ride. The section of trail I rode connects the small towns of Lexington, Bellville and Butler Ohio. In order to reach my half way point at 12.5 miles I had to extend my ride a mile past the end of the bike trail. The road I chose was mostly an uphill climb out of the village of Butler. I estimate a couple hundred feet of elevation maybe a bit more. Once turned around I rocketed back down the hill and set a new top speed record on my road bike.
