as I write this update, listening to Stealer's Wheel, I realize that I am already yearning for Spring Break. I think I've planned a good one this year! I have been informed that there is a 350 mile towpath trail that reaches from Pittsburgh to D.C. From a cycling perspective, this is an absolute boon. It is so rare thate one is able to find such a long stretch of trail that is non-motorized. I'm super psyched, as this will also be my first solo bike trip, I am also looking forward to spending a few days in Washington D.C. From there, I am going to fly to South Carolina for a few days to visit my family, which I am also excited for as I have not seen them in several years, and then finally, back to Cleveland. I have been to D.C. before with school, but I think that there is, at least for me, a certain excitement to exploring a big city. Also, good food is a must! If anyone has any dining (or other recommendations) for downtown D.C. , kindly put it in the comments. I am happy for suggestions! I have below attached a map of the entire trail, as well as a picture of the riding surface (it looks like heaven)! On a tangential note, I have recently got up and running the official Summit Instagram / Facebook feeds. My plan is to post more frequent photographic updates, with light text. The bulk of my writing will stay on the blog. If this tickles your interest, give me a follow (links below)!
