Next weekend scheduled is the first big ride of the year. The C&O canal. The wife and boy will be down in SC soaking up the sun while I soak in the sights.
Saturday early morning I’ll venture northeast then west to connect to the all gravel trail. I plan on taking it slow the whole trip. Day 1 will have me going right around 100mi and day 2 around 75.
Saturday will have me going NW past Harpers Ferry then to Antietam NP for some sights. I’ve always want to go to this battlefield and can’t think of a better way to see it. From there, back to Harpers Ferry for the night at the Tea Horse Hostel – a seemingly great place to stay for hikers and bikers alike. They serve you waffles, fruit and OJ and have towels/showers and a bed. Anything else needed? No.
Sunday will be easier, back to home with a cool start.
Plenty of pictures to come. If anyone in the area wants to join let me know.
