newbie's Skyline Drive to DC tour, ideas?
I'm planning a cycling tour from Charlottesville to Washington DC, via Skyline Drive, for a week this summer. From Front Royal, would you recommend going to a) Harpers Ferry and taking the C&O canal trail or b) Purcellville and taking the W&OD trail? Why? Any particular area attractions?
Background: my daughter and I, we're not hammerheads, we're not in a hurry, planning about 50 miles per day, 2 or maybe 3 days for Skyline drive, on road bikes, light touring gear, picnics and restaurants -- not full cooking, hammock camping, some hotels.
