Biking a Trail of History from Pittsburgh to Washington
Joyce Park stashed this in Bicycling
A classic week-long bike tour with a surprising amount of transportation history. You literally cross the spot where the railroad overtook the system of canals that were so essential to the Colonial mid-Atlantic states. Short detours to Antietam and Harpers Ferry for some Civil War history.
A week to bike across country sounds aggressive.
Or am I just showing my lack of fitness by saying so?
