C&O Towpath Ride in July

The 184.5 mile long Chesapeake & Ohio Canal is located along the north bank of the Potomac River, starting in Washington, DC and ending in Cumberland, MD. The canal was built between 1828 and 1850, and it operated sporadically between floods until 1924. In 1954, US Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas organized an eight day hike up the canal's towpath in an effort to save it from being converted to a parkway. His efforts succeeded, and in 1971 the canal became a National Historic Park. Today, much of the canal has been drained of water and reclaimed by the forest. However, the canal's towpath remains a favorite of hikers, joggers, and bicyclists. Like myself, many local cyclists have considered trying to bike the entire 184 miles between Georgetown and Cumberland, MD. I started biking large sections of the lower 60 miles with high school buddies back around 1981. (This was before ATBs so I used my "Sear's Best" Ross 10-speed). Since then, I've complete

Ride 6/29/2009 - Ride Report

Pretty good ride. Lot of old faces, a bunch of new people. Two tandems were out in the crowd of at least 70 people. We rode south then east and had flats on 5th. As soon as we started moving we had another flat. A few people stayed back and fixed the tire. They caught up to us later. We headed north past Crew Stadium and east into the neighborhoods. We looped back west on Weber and stopped near the trail. I rode south on the trail with Andy and Bethia and down Neil into town back to the bar. I had 24 miles. Your mileage may have varied.
