Leave Thursday to drive to Pittsburgh. Starting Friday, I'll then ride the Allegheny Trail and C&O Trail to DC. Weather is iffy, but I am going to go ahead and go. I have spent the past few weeks doing a lot of riding, so I am ready. Had to make a trip out to DC two weeks ago so I got to ride some of the trail around Frostburg MD, then did the Mt. Vernon Trail in DC which was kinda nice.
I am so looking forward to the ride. No cell phone, no blackberry, no IPOD. Just my bike, the trail, and me. I am shipping a couple of boxes of clothes, my laptop, and all the above since I will be out there for two weeks.
Everything fell into place. Got a cheap round trip ticket from South Bend IN so my wife is flying out to spend a weekend with me while I'm out there.
All I am waiting for is my extra foldable tire to come in tomorrow. I have the Schwalbe Marathon Supremes so I am not worried about tire problems. Makes my wife a little happier though, and that's important!
