Retired Old Men Eating OUT

Team ROMEO (Formerly Weekday Riders)

Team Romeo started as an off-shoot of The Akron Bicycle Club.  (Visit ABC's web site.)

Every summer some of us would get together and ride one or two weeks on a long distance tour of our own.

We have visited most of the states of the United States and up into Canada. (See a list of our tours of old.)

Team ROMEO now consists of a group of seasoned riders that ride together all over, not just to lunch on Tuesdays.  Check out the TOURS in menu to see where we have been.

Club Jersey was designed by Barb Schlueter, Tom's wife.

The Botzum Trail head is 0.3 miles south of the intersection of Riverview Road and Bath Road in the CVNP. Usually these rides are 30-35 miles in length, but there are always exceptions. The trail head is expansive, there is plenty of parking, I have never seen this lot full.   MAP
