Day 9

            Well this bike ride on the Great Allegheny Passage and the C & O Canal is “in the history books”. We had a nine hour ride home and arrived safely about 5 PM. Of course, the weather today would have been perfect for biking, because we were not biking. The temperature was in the low 80’s, not the high 90’s we had been experiencing.

            We all had such a good time and blended together as a cohesive group of friends, even though we mostly did not know each other before the trip. Carol and I hope to offer an even better trip next year to benefit Rails-to-Trails of Wayne County, as this was a learning experience for us. These wonderful people were our “guinea pigs”. You as the reader might want to give consideration to whether you would be interested in this ride. Here are a couple pictures.

Bikes and luggage are unloaded and in each person's car,
as we say our "Good Byes".

  1. Congratulations on the completion of your ride and thanks for writing about your experiences on the C&O Canal towpath! I'm sure that many will follow your example so we at the C&O Canal Trust need all the help we can get to help care for this national treasure.
