    I'm 5'1 (barely!) and I have the smallest stock size Trek 520, which I use as a commuter, and on which I've done a few fully-loaded (front and rear panniers) short (3-day) bike camping trips.

    Wow. If riding a bike involved that much emotional drama . . . I'd pick another hobby. :)

    You're correct, the B&A is about 13 miles long, and as Consularrider notes, it's pretty flat. As far as average mph, goes -- the speed limit on the trail is 15 mph. Very, very early in the morning...
