Bike Touring Round-up: Bike the Gap + C&O Canal Towpath

End of the Great Allegheny Passage, beginning of the C&O Towpath. Bike shop about 10 yards away, shops, and a cool old building being converted into luxury lofts. Bikes mean business.

Our first bike touring experience rocked our socks! (And made them very, very wet on a few days….). Bike travel for so many days felt unlike any vacation I’ve ever taken. We’ll be doing this again — a lot. Especially if we can find long, separated trail mileage for that get-away-from-it-all experience. (Hear that, small towns looking for economic development? Invest in trails.)

All the posts from the trip in one handy reference list:

Your Turn

  • If you’ve taken a long bike tour, where did you ride and what did you like about that route?
  • If you haven’t and these posts inspire you at all, drop a note to let me know.

A Much Shorter Trip

A while back Hubs and I took a much shorter four-day weekend getaway. Here’s the roundup of posts on that — a lot less mileage and rain.

Sharing is karma--pass it along!
