RHW TRIPLE NICKLE

Post by GRAPEAPE94 »



Has any one ridden the TRIPLE NICKLE in Ohio? I am going to be spending some time in W.Va., Ky., and Oh. this summer and Roadrunner mag has this as one of their 10 best riding roads. Might even take some time and do N.C. 28 (Moonshiner 28).

Living down here in Fl. I relish the times when I can get on the twisties, and the hills.

Rode the 555 in August of 2013 with a few buddies.
Had a great time and the road is fun. The blind hills take some getting used to , but the curves are worth it.
Pavement was smooth almost everywhere last August...but winter may have screwed it up...

The most interesting thing that I found about 555 is that it has lots of ups and downs and when cresting a hill with no visibility of the road beyond the crest the road will turn left or right just at the crest making for exciting times. The road does this many times. If you follow 555 north all the way to I-70 you will end up in Zanesville where you won't be too far from the AMA museum if you're into that kind of thing.
