    Srt

    I completed two rides last week on the Schuylkill River Trail. The SRT, when complete, will provide a 100 mile bike route from the Delaware River to Pottsville, PA, source of the Schuylkill River (and home of Yuengling Brewery.)

    First ride was Tuesday, on a new stretch of trail, three mile between Phoenixville and Spring City. The trail here is small gravel, with some paved stretches. It's 3 miles long, but I did seven by riding back and forth.



    I followed up on Saturday with 22 miles on a group ride with Bike Forums members on a paved section of trail from Audubon to Spring Mill. I struggled to keep up, but I'm pleased I spent the time in good company and did as well as I did after eight weeks off the bike.

    When I rode that stretch at the end of April (it had just opened), Spring City was the end. On 724 in the car a month or two back it looked as though the stretch up to Parker Ford was done all but the signs -- did you check it out beyond Spring City at all?

    Who knows, maybe in our lifetime Phoenixville will fill in the gap there!

    Official opening of the stretch from Spring City to Parkersford was Tuesday. I'll be riding it this weekend.

    At the moment there's a road route with a bit of a climb between Cromby and Phoenixville. The stretch between Parkersford and Pottstown should be done by 2014 - Pendot needs to replace the bridge over the river.
