DH and I have been hitting our local rails-to-trails since our mountain roads are often too treacherous! We've been on the Virginia Creeper several times recently, and rode the Guest River Gorge last night. I'm going to PA next week and plan to ride another, the Lehigh Gorge State Park Trail, about 20 miles long. A possible trip to St. Louis in September might add part of the KATY Trail to my list, and a few others look really great up there. And the final r-t-t ride planned this year is the Silver Comet in Atlanta in September, and also in September we're trying to find a nice one near Columbus, OH. Any suggestions??? After all that, back to our Virginia Creeper for the fall.

We also live near the Heart of Appalachia Bike Route, but there are some truly killer hills on that one, might have to work up to it. And last but certainly not least we're also close to the TransAmerica Trail. That's a daydream right now, but it's also a long term goal that keeps me going when my legs are screaming...

Peace, and happy pedaling!

My most recent trip was for the Tour de Paris... Paris, Texas, that is...

56 miles of chip seal, I tell ya! I'm still buzzing. But the last 6 miles was real purty! And I shaved 17 minutes off my PR for 100k.

Last weekend I went to visit my brother and we biked through the Glenwood Canyon with the Colorado River just off the trail. Magnificent day with splendor filled views all along the way.

Ahhhh! Hooked another one. emoticon

Last weekend I went to visit my brother and we biked through the Glenwood Canyon with the Colorado River just off the trail. Magnificent day with splendor filled views all along the way. I am new to cycling and was grateful I had spent several weeks biking everyday to be ready for this great Colorado ride. I dehydrated a pineapple which made a great snack as did the Emergen-C powder I added to my water.

Would love to hear of everyone's adventures. Whether you trecked across the country seeking new trails/roads or just headed an hour outside your hometown for something new. Nothing like riding unfamiliar trails and roads! :)

Went to Snowshoe Resort (West Virginia) mid-July for some downhill mountain biking and had a bast despite the muddy, slippery conditions. Stayed at Elk River Touring instead of the resort. Got to love the laid back atmosphere and great cuisine! So relaxing!
