Welcome to Leg 3 of the 2019, 20th Annual V2V. I'm honored to be your leg captain for this leg.

We will depart the Hotel at 8AM and follow the Old National Road/Victory Highway to Pickerington, Ohio. Although we may make a diversion to experience some of the great roads in SE Ohio. 

Our first point of interest will be the Searights Toll House https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Searights_Tollhouse%2C_National_Road

Our next point of interest along the route will be a stop at Wheeling Park to visit one of the Madonna of the Trail monuments, one of a series of 12 monuments dedicated to the spirit of pioneer women in the United States. The monuments were commissioned by the National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution. They were installed in each of the 12 states along the National Old Trails Road, which extended from Cumberland, Maryland, to Upland, California. We will actually pass one as we go by Nemacolin Golf Course but there is not a good place to pullover

After a brief visit we’ll continue on the National Road/Victory Highway, jogging onto I-70 for a brief 21 miles, then back onto the Old National Road/Victory Highway to our next will stop at the “S” bridge near New Concord, Ohio at Fox Run.

We’ll continue on National Road/Victory Highway and cross over one leg of the “Y” bridge, then go up the hill to Putnam Hill Park which provides a nice overlook/photo op of the bridge and rivers below. http://www.atlasobscura.com/places/zanesville-ybridge

After a brief visit at the park we will take a diversion loop to enjoy some nice roads of SE Ohio before re-joining National Road/Victory Highway and follow it to our final stop for this leg, the Comfort Inn in Pickerington, Oh.

I hope to get us there in time to make a visit to the AMA Hall of Fame Museum americanmotorcyclist.com

- Gene
