An Adventure Cycling group of bicyclists stopped in London for the night on Tuesday, May 13. They have been riding the path runaway slaves took in the 1860s called the Underground Railroad. They will cover the 1,800-mile trip in 41 days. The cyclists said they have enjoyed the Ohio bike trails, which were described as “to die for.” In addition to the cycling, they’re enjoying the historical aspect of the tour.
