Western Maryland Rail Trail
This month, we started taking the bikes on the road.
Twice this month, we’ve driven out to the Western Maryland Rail Trail, a former railroad line that’s been converted to a 22-mile-long bike path. Being a rail trail, it’s pretty flat, which is wonderful for Rob on his single-speed bike and me with my lack of athleticism (even with a geared bike). The trail is also nicely paved, well-maintained and, when we’ve been, hardly crowded. Both times, we parked in Hancock, Md., (the midpoint of the trail); biked the western end of the trail; then visited nearby bakery / diner Weaver’s for dinner and pie.
I haven’t ridden my bike for more than a week now (we were out of town this past weekend), and I have a hankering to hit the road / trail again.
