I'm leaving tonight to PA for a 5 day riding trip across Northern PA on RT 6. It's the first time that I'll be doing a multi-day ride. I'll be riding with two brother-in-laws who are both roadies. Our wives will be riding sag and visiting local attractions, antique stores, general stores and any other roadside attractions to keep their interest up while we put in 65 to 80 miles a day. We are booked in B&B's along the way and will ride from the Western PA line East to Wilksbarre, then leave RT 6 and ride back to Williamsport to the Mother-in-law's home. I did some research to find some attractions for the ladies but they don't seem interested in the PA Lumber Mesuem, Zippo Lighter Museum, tours of the Straub's Brewery or the two courthouse statues which don't have Lady Justice wearing blindfolds over her eyes (I guess in small town PA they like to know who is on trail). We plan to eat breakfast at the B&B's then ride until noon where we will meet up with the ladies for lunch then finish up riding in the early afternoon followed by food and drink in some local establishment.
I've worked out my race training plan with my coach so that on two of the days I'll be doing specific intervals, pushing up the big hills in a high HR for 10 to 12 minutes, and on one day I'll be working on sprinting efforts. I have packed my camera and will take some pictures and possibly post during the ride if the B&B's have internet. I do promise to take the obligatory pictures of pie.
