While this is not a club sponsored event, several members have participated in the past and say it is a great drive.
Eric’s Riverrun is a ~240 mile, all-day driving tour using some of Ohio’s most interesting and challenging roads. This year we’ll go southwest on SR 41 through West Union, crossing the river at Maysville, then to Augusta on the river, lunch options in Maysville at Chandlers, Caproni’s, or in Augusta. After the ferry crossing at Augusta, we’ll head up to Georgetown, boyhood home of US. Grant. Then we will head north, returning to Mt. Sterling.
Cars leave Bob Evans at I-71 and Stringtown Rd. in Grove City between 8 and 9 am. We should be at the Ohio River around Noon and finish by 6 pm., depending on the time spent sightseeing. There is no fixed schedule nor any assigned speeds, other than posted speed limits. This is a tour rather than a rally. The route includes a mix of open and flowing paved roads that connect tight and twisty sections.
