I've been away since last weekend (and still am) on the PA Rails to Trails "Greenway Sojourn", a six day bike trip from Erie PA to Cabot (near Pittsburgh PA). The full trip is six days, but I decided to turn in my wristband after three long hard days of riding and tenting. It was fun, but really strenuous (for me) - 35 mi. a day and pitching a tent in pouring rain on middle school ballfields and parks in Erie PA, Clymer NY, (we crossed the state line & then back to) Franklin PA, where I'm holed up in a lovely B& B (with wireless and a laptop) til my husband (cycling on) picks me up on Friday night. Lots of adventures on the way, including an angry landowner in Spartanburg PA who scattered tacks on the rail trail (even though it wasn't his property) and almost half the riders got flat tires. Titusville Herald story . Ah, the rugged outdoors life!
