We are planning our cross country trip that starts in Delaware and was wondering if someone might have a suggestion for a possible alternate route? We plan to ride from Delaware to DC then use the C&O & GAP to get up toward Pittsburgh before swinging west. The only concern is we are planning to leave about the first week of April and I know that Big Savage Tunnel is planning to open about then so by the time we get there we should be good. I am more concerned about the C&O trail condition that early. I have ridden it a number of times with the most recent being last November so I know what it might be like.
So wondering about some road routes that you might be familar with.
