Bike Tour Travel Day

Red Roof Inn Baltimore Airport
I like Red Roof. It’s inexpensive. That’s the extent of the good things to say. You get the point.

I drove the the Red Rood Inn at Baltimore airport last night. Brandon is flying in from Austin this morning.  We will drive 30 miles to Union Station in DC, box our bikes and do the tourist thing while we wait to board the 4:30 Amtrak to Pittsburgh.

Tomorrow morning we begin our bike ride from Pittsburgh to DC on the Great Allegheny Passage and the C&O canal towpath. We will be mixing camping with soft beds and hot showers.

It’s Touring Time

The bike all packed up and ready to go.

Early Sunday morning I drive to Baltimore to pick up Brandon.  We begin our tour on Monday in Pittsburgh and should arrive back in DC on the following Sunday or Monday.  The weather looks dicey but we will make do.
