Roanoke to Cleveland

Planning trip next year and trying to decide whether to go up through W. Va or up to Pittsburgh and over. Which is the better/scenic ride. Never been to Pittsburgh or through W. VA.

I didn't look at a map but check and see if US 250 is anywhere close to you. You can take it the whole way to an hour south of Cleveland. Pretty good riding on the Ohio leg of it.

you could ride into northern WV near the Md border and pick up 68 across northern WV into Morgantown , from there you can either head north into Pittsburgh on 79 or pick up 250 which will bring you into Ohio on a nice scenic 2 lane , alot depends on your time frame for the ride. I know 68 across northern WV is a nice scenic ride I have done it a couple times when headed to Norfolk a few years back.
Whatever route you pick have a great trip.

Route 219 through West Virginia is a wonderful well paved, curvy, scenic road. I highly recommend it. You pass by Wind Turbines that are so close to the road it looks like you're going into a blender. It's an awesome sight. Just got back from trip using that route.

Keep the thread alive as you figure things out. Might be some members that will meet up and ride part of the way with you. Always nice to have a leader on an unfamiliar road.
