This Saturday, we’ll be taking a long, beautiful ride down to Dubiln, OH to see the Chief Leatherlips monument and to the Hartman Rock Garden in Springfield, OH The Rock Garden is a collection of the amazing and diverse rock sculptures built by one man that you may ever see. Ben Hartman got laid off in 1932 and started building a rock fish pond and kept going, adding a castle, a cathedral, Mt Vernon, a tree of life, Independence Hall, several religious scenes, patriotic monuments and fairy tale fantasies.

We will start at Luna’s Restaurant, 33 W Aurora Rd, in Northfield at 8am for breakfast, kickstands up at 9 a.m. We will wend our way down some nice roads to 42 and take 42 to Dublin where we’ll ride along the Scioto River to visit the chief then take 40 into Springfield.
Since going down, including lunch and the stops will take about 5-6 hours, we’ll take the freeway back so we can still arrive home somewhere between 6 and 7 after ice cream at Country Maid.
