Promoting the bicycling lifestyle in The Buckeye State
Tour of the Scioto River Valley
The Tour of the Scioto River Valley (TOSRV) is an annual bike ride from Columbus to Portsmouth, Ohio and back. This route covers 100 (or more) miles each way over the flat and gently rolling terrain of Southern Ohio.
The 2004 TOSRV was on May 8-9, with over 3,000 cyclists participating. This was my first time participating in TOSRV, and with warm temperatures and clear blue skies, I was told that it was the best weather for the event in ten years.
