528 to Foxburg

Words cannot describe last night’s ride.  I’m going to try, but I’m sure I’m going to fail miserably.  The ride cam wasn’t set up, but even if it had been, I’ve not been thrilled with it lately so I don’t know how good of pictures I would’ve gotten.  One final caveat – I’ve been proclaiming this… Continue reading 528 to Foxburg

The Trip that started it all….. (Part 1 – Pittsburgh to Richmond – 375 miles)

A couple quick thoughts before I begin.  First, this map is close to our actual ride, but not exact.  I removed the destinations to protect the privacy of those we visited.  Second, this ride (and blog) was broken up over three days – Pittsburgh to Richmond, Richmond to DC, and DC back to Pittsburgh.  Third,… Continue reading The Trip that started it all…..
