GAP day 1 of 3

After completing the 184.5-mile C&O yesterday, our ten-person Porsche Bike team started the three-day 150-mile Great Allegheny Passage bike ride. The first day was only 32 miles from Cumberland MD to Meyersdale PA, but was uphill and in the rain. I also got my second flat of the ride. Bummer. Hoping tomorrow will be rain and flat tire free.

C&O day 3 of 3 completed

Our team of ten Porsche Bike riders completed the 184.5 mile Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Towpath today. The 60 planned miles turned into more since the famous Paw Paw Tunnel was closed. We had to climb over the 1.5 mile mountain trail to get to the other side ... not fun. But in the end, the entire C&O ride was truly epic in every way. My 2004 Porsche Bike X and 1998 Porsche Bike S both performed well. Another great adventure! Tomorrow, we start the 145-mile Great Allegheny Passage!

C&O day 2 of 3 completed


 

Today the Porsche Bike team rode 67 miles through the C&O halfway point and reached Hancock MD. We encountered a long detour, a large fallen tree and two flat tires before a three-hour dinner at Buddy Lou's. Long day! Tomorrow I'm hoping we complete the C&O with another 60 mile ride.

C&O day 1 of 3 completed

 

Great start to the 340-mile C&O/GAP ride today! 10 Porsche Bike riders started at the C&O Mile 0 in Washington DC and 10 finished 62 miles riding to Harpers Ferry, WV. Tomorrow we ride to Hancock, MD. The Bike X performed well. My fingers are crossed the rest of the trip continues well.
