    eastern shore tour

    Well I finally took my first tour. Drove to Tuckahoe St. Pk on Marylands eastern shore in Fridays nasty rain and wind storm. Broke camp Sat morn for Cape Henlopen St Park in Delaware. Used a flat bed trailer with waterproof kayaking bags. trailer perform well, no problem pulling it but then again no hills in Delaware. Weather was PERFECT, sunny, warm and the wind was mostly on our backs. Traveled 75 miles on day 1, left camp heading NE towards Felton DE then SE towards Milton and then east to the ocean. Rode mostly small back roads with little or no traffic, passing many of delawares scenic ponds, parks, small enjoyable towns. Return trip was more southernly with a short horrible ride on rt404(stay away from this road). This way was a little shorter but just as scenic. Delaware has excellent roads for biking as they are in good repair, lightly traveled and flat. 2 great maps are:
    Delmarva Bicycling trails($5.00): http://tinyurl.com/b4g63
    Delaware bicycling council(free): http://www.deldot.net/static/bike/maps/maps.html
    If anyone wants any more info drop me a line
    PS: Dogfish Ale, a local great brew on draft

    balto charlie,
    Did you meet my riding buddy AL at Tuckahoe? He was MTBing? I seem to remember him saying that he met some touring people at Tuckahoe and they were heading for Henlopen. 404 is not fun.

    Yeah I met a guy getting ready to bike on Saturday morning. We talked briefly as I parked my van in the picnic area. I told him of our tour that day. We both remarked what a great day to ride. Are you familiar with those 2 maps I spoke about. Excellent resource for Delmarva cycling
