GAP and C&O Bike Tour October

GAP and C&O Bike Tour October

Hello All,
     I am planning on riding the GAP/C&O in October.  I will probably ride the Capital Limited to Pittsburg on a Wednesday (roll on roll off bike storage!) spend the night in Pittsburg, then ride the canal to DC, planning to get into DC on the following weekend so that I can ride the MARC train home to BWI. I figure about 50 miles per day, unsupported and camping.  I am definitely doing this, and if you want to come for all or part of it let me know.  If you want to (wimp out) have rooms, you can join us each day, just to ride.   

     The planning is so that if people only want to ride the GAP.  They can roll on the train in Cumberland to return DC on Sunday (leave 9:30 am arrive approx. 1pm)  They can then take the MARC Bike Train home.   


     I have not decided on the dates yet, but will make a decision before August 22nd.  If you want to come and have a date preference... let me know.

Hi Lydia,
I've done this ride twice. It's an awesome ride especially when the leaves are at peak color.   I'm not much of a camper though.

You don't need to be.  We can ride together, eat together and then in the evenings, we camp and you sleep in a luxurious warm comfortable bed with hot water for showers in the morning.  Love to have you join us.

Hi Lydia,
Do you have the dates set for this ride?  I have always wanted to do this ride.  It sounds like you are riding self-contained, are you?  Are you cooking your own meals each night?
Sincerely,
Beth Behrle

The ride is tentatively being planned for October 3,and then riding 50+ miles a day to get us to DC by the weekend.  I was planning on taking the train, but since the bike slots are all full until the end of October! (oops) I will be driving and can take 2-3 additional people with their bikes.  So all you need to do is get to DC.  We can meet at Reagan airport where there is long term parking for your car, or up here in Baltimore.

Come join me.  This will be fun!

Hey Lydia,
Are you thinking of doing any adventure rides this year?  I'm just trying to do some planning and wanted to see what might be possible.  I've done self supported rides in the past, but its more fun with others.

Thx!
