Felkerino and I ditched the bags for the day and rode the Cacapon 200K brevet out of Middletown, Virginia. A group of around 35 people participated. Even though we rode […]
Brevets, commutes, tandem rides, coffee. Sometimes a marathon. Washington, D.C.
The day started in mist, fog, and a climb from Waynesboro, Virginia, up to Skyline Drive. Morning fog kept us well-insulated from any mountain views so I spent the morning focused on the trees and falling leaves within ten feet of me.
The final stop of the recent Tennessee bike tour work trip was Harper’s Bike Shop in Knoxville, Tennessee. This was a large shop just outside of the University of Tennessee campus, and has been around for 50 years. At least, that’s what I was told.
Hey, we’re in Waynesboro! The last time Felkerino and I passed through here we had been rescued off the Blue Ridge Parkway by an Appalachian Trail trail angel. Why, you ask? Thanks for asking!
It’s another great day on the Virginia roads.
I’ve never cyclo-toured in the fall, and now I see that I have been missing out. It’s not just the fall colors and smells that make it great. It is also seeing how people celebrate the season.
Hi there! Wish you could be here with us. The best fall colors I have ever seen, warm sun, and leaves gently falling. Well, most are gentle.
Boo! Day three is a wrap! After lunch we made our way through the Sweedlin Valley and then over South Fork Mountain. The climb over the mountain is tough. But the view is worth it and so is the downhill. Vacation is awesome!
Winding roads, fall leaves, awesome temps, almost no cars. Words cannot describe the splendor we are riding through.
Hi. Can anyone tell me what purpose this big hole on 15th Street serves? This bad boy, located in front of Old Ebbitt Grill near the corner of 15th and G, is a hazard to cyclists.
A beautiful day to ride our way into the hills. Sun, a little wind, temps in the 70s. Hilly! And lots of apples.
Quiet roads, awesome weather, and great company. Greetings from Clear Brook, Va and Rte. 11, the great fleche highway!
Look familiar to any of you? Severna Park! Thanks to Clint and Chip for coordinating the purchase.
While my trip to Tennessee has ended, the memories of my bike shop tour work trip live on in my memories and on this blog. River City Bicycles in Chattanooga, Tennessee, was my third bike shop destination. This is an inviting shop with a large retail space. I […]
Before beginning my commute Monday morning, I stepped outside, assessed the cold and wet, and resigned myself to a Metro ride. Bike riding? Eh, not this damp day, thanks. (Extra credit to all of you who rode, ok?)
