Brevets, commutes, tandem rides, coffee. Sometimes a marathon. Washington, D.C.

Cycling the C&O Canal

This Sunday, I briefly met up with those doing the Chuck and Crista ride out of Hains Point. They were going the opposite direction from me, however, so after a couple of miles I left the group and pedaled the Quickbeam out to White’s Ferry via the C&O Canal.

Skyline Drive – mile 105 to 42

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.

Fall Touring Fun

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.

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!
