Assuming I continue to work at the same place......
Since I am local, I have been trying to do a little of the C&O at a time. I have not made it all the way to Cumberland. Currently, I find I have been spending time in the pool and not on the bike.
If times work out, I would love to have someone to ride with, but at this point I can not make any promises. I will also say, I am slow and have been stopping to take pictures, read, talk to people....so I may not make the best companion if you plan on zoom, zooming the trail.
If you need to pick someone's brain, let me know I will pull out books, pictures, GPS data.....
Additionally, there are other places to ride in DC, if you want something less woodsy.
If you see a fat guy on this bike, give a yell.
