We had a chilly start this morning with temps in the high forties. It warmed to the low 60’s, which made for very pleasant riding. Most of the day was spent on a 40 mile rail trail, half in Maryland and half in Pennsylvania. The surface was compacted and a lot easier to ride than yesterday’s trail. The last nine miles of the first half were all uphill, at grades between 1.5% and 3%, which doesn’t sound like much, but after nine miles, I could feel it. Happily, the second half was pretty much downhill, a fun ride. We rode through York to the hotel and had a great salmon chowder for dinner. Our cook is really amazing. Tomorrow we are back on roads, which means a day of rolling hills. Onward and upward.
