Heidi, are you starting in DC and working your way north or the reverse? There's a steeper incline if you take the north-bound route, so that's why I'm asking. Also, how much gear are you going to be hauling? There are options to swap out tires, so your best bet might be a "reconfigured" bike.

Sounds very exciting!

I just started the stationary bike at the gym after many years of not biking at all. On vacation this summer I want to cycle across an island close to my home (it's only 14 km out and back), I have realized I'm not a fan of the stationary bike and starting to think I may need a new bike and some confidence to go with it lol.
I am determined, so I guess....I hope that will be enough to make it happen.

I have a Trek hyrbid. It's a 2009 but I love it! I rode the hilly hundred on it last October down in southern Indiana.

I like the Townie hybrid bikes. I am looking for a road bike from Tomasso, not sure if they make Hybrid.

So, at the end of March one of my rewards is to buy a bike. I'm biking the C&O Canal this summer (186 miles). The trail goes through the woods on a generally graveled path.

I'm thinking a hybrid bike would be best. I already have the money saved, but I'm wondering if anyone has any advice on a certain bike to look into!

Thanks!!! :)
