Visiting the Dayton Hamvention booth at the Orlando Hamcation, I learned something interesting about the new Hamvention site in Xenia, Ohio: it's very bicycle accessible. There are bike trails going directly into the Greene County Fairgrounds from downtown Dayton. In addition, Xenia is right on the Ohio to Erie Trail which connects to both Columbus and Cincinnati.

I'm sure the Bicycle Hams will be elated at this. I'm not presently planning to get there by bike, although looking at the maps I suspect traffic jams in Xenia will be the biggest complaint about the new site. Bikes are not so good if you're carrying a roll of hardline, but otherwise I can imagine it not taking much longer from downtown Dayton to the Hamvention on a bike than in a car.
