Mosquito Lake Autumnal century and 3/4 century

Updated shorter route - I rounded it up 'cuz I like how 125Km sounded vs 122.310144 kilometers.  I did not edit the century route.  It's still very ride-able but I'm not up to doing 100 miles this season.

An easier century ride if you're going to do one.  The revised route is a total of 98.3 miles with minimal climbs. If you're not quite up to a 100 mile ride.  An additional 8-10 miles can be shaved off if you decide to avoid the causeway loop on the northern most part of the route.  A 76 mile option is also available.


Plenty of fuel and water locations including,  Lunch stop/breakfast in Cortland @ 'Four Star Diner', Newton Falls at Subway on the way back.  Several water stops available about 25-35 mile intervals.  Optional stop in Lake Milton at about mile 80 for fuel, ice cream (well earned) and convenience store (cash is a good idea).

This is unsupported, no SAG.

For your riding pleasure and to provide a better riding experience to the bicycle populous, there are multiple routes.  Two starting locations and meet up times have been established. 

NOTE: In order for both groups to combine.  We will meet near the intersection of McClintocksburg Rd and Gilbert.  Please wait on McClintocksburg Rd a couple hundred yards east. [this subject to change depending on the road work this summer] I'll update soon
