I have heard a lot of good things about all the bike trails down in SW Ohio. Man I bet your legs were burning up after all that. That isn't exactly a short distance.

I had to work up to Xenia and Miamisburg. My favorite route was up Linden Ave where I would access the trail and work my way around downtown and then take the streets back to my home. I miss the trails. Bicycling in Cincy is another animal altogether.

Pull up a map of Dayton on Google maps and turn on the bicycling option to see the trails highlighted in green.

I would get on the bike trail right at Linden Ave where it hit the railroad tracks. Then I would ride all the way out to Yellow Springs up to Young's Dairy Farm. That was my favorite trip. Dayton is a really good place for a bike rider.

That was my access point too. That's a haul up to Yellowsprings. Hats off!

Hi all--

And to think I bought a bicycle this spring and had to start getting my butt back in shape by going around the block a few times before I even dared set foot on the bike trails.

In all of 2012, the furthest I've gone in one direction is south from Riverscape to West Carrollton - a fraction of the distance between Linden to Yellow Springs.

Remodeled Kohl's store to reopen in Huber Heights

Quote:
Kohl’s stores in Huber Heights and Troy will host “grand re-opening” events on Thursday [10/18] following store renovations designed to give customers — in the words of Kohl’s PR folks — “a fresh, exciting shopping experience.”

A ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled for 7:45 a.m. at both stores: at 8301 Old Troy Pike in Huber Heights, and at 1869 W. Main St. in Troy.

I would often times leave early on Saturday morning and took my time. I tried to be past Kil-Kare before all of the cars started showing up for the drag races. I would then continue on to meet my brother and his family at HaHa pizza or Young's dairy. I would then put my bike on his car rack and ride back to East Dayton. Don't give me too much credit. I was in great shape at the time but I wasn't crazy...lol.

Dayton Manufacturer Plans New $26,000,000 Plant

Quote:
Malt Products Corp. is planning to build a malt extract brewing plant on Wolf Creek Pike near the company’s current local manufacturing site, company and city officials said Wednesday. City officials estimate the value of the expansion to be about $26 million.

The new plant will mean 30 to 50 new jobs — possibly more than doubling its local workforce — and 50,000 additional square feet for the existing facility, said Doug Harrison, the company’s Dayton general manager.
