Me and my friend Brain checked out the Rend Lake bike trail today and rode about 15 miles total on our mountain bikes. I never wanted to go there before because I thought it was short. I was wrong, the trail is awesome and quite long. There are even some hills that will make you feel the burn going up them and then be happy going down them. It is mostly concrete as well so road bikes would be fine too. There is about a half mile of gravel though and me and Brian named that stretch, dead man’s land because there are dead fish and stink all over that section, lol but still worth the ride.
The path goes right by the Sandusky beach as well, imagine a long tiring hot bike ride to the beach!!! That sounds worth it, IMO!
I highly recommend the trail! In a couple of weeks, I am going to go camping there (tent) and ride the entire trail and back, then go to the beach to cool off and then fish at night!
P.s. 25 miles on the road bike done on Saturday
