2017 Jim Schmid bicycles Mad River Trail – Dayton, OH

I’m in Dayton, OH to attend the International Trails Symposium Free Public Event which will take place tomorrow. After biking on the 15-mile Creekside Trail I wanted to get in a little more and so headed out on the Mad River Trail which takes you along the Mad River to the Great Miami River. Didn’t work out the way I had planned. Trail was underwater after just biking a couple of miles. Turns out much of the trail is in a flood plain and after three days of rain the river was really flowing.
