June 5, 2019
Laurie and I enjoy taking overnight or multi-day excursions by bike. Here are some pictures and routing notes from our latest trip, which wound from Greenbelt through DC and to western Loudoun county VA, mostly along paved trails. We returned via White's ferry and the C&O Canal gravel trail. A total of about 150 miles mostly over gloriously car-free roads. Click here or on the picture for the full story.
