My Delmarva Tour

A link to a thread with my journal of my recent week-long bike tour of Delmarva:

Every Day is a Winding Road

I saw a lot of 50 plus riders out there, and stayed with a couple.

Very nice, thanks for sharing.

Can I nit-pick? The Mason-Dixon Line is the border between Pennsylvania and Maryland, not Delaware and Maryland

The Mason Dixon Line is also between MD and DE.

Years ago, I was seriously interested in bike touring, but never actually did it. After reading your engrossing account, I'm interested again. Great pictures, interesting commentary.
