I’m trying to decide if I should ride the C&O and GAP 340-mile ride this fall with the original OEM front bike shocks or the aftermarket German-made carbon fiber fork that I used on the Death Ride. Something I’ll have to ponder over a few biers.

I took apart, cleaned and greased the 2004 Porsche Bike X original front forks today. These forks aren’t on the bike currently. However, I am considering reinstalling for the fall C&O/GAP attempt. A little extra cushioning might be nice on the 340 mile ride.

I am strongly considering riding the entire 340 mile C&O and GAP this fall. My original plan was to ride the Great Allegheny Passage in 2021 after riding the Chesapeake and Ohio in 2020. But why not do both in one go? How about adding an Ortlieb bike rack and bags and ride unassisted? I do love my bike gear. We'll see how the training goes.
