60 rider group bicycle tour along the C&O Canal Path and Great Allegheny Passage with a shuttle back to the start in Arlington, VA. Catered meals, luggage transfer, camping. Generally flat unpaved bike paths.
Ride your hybrid or mountain bike some 330 miles on hard-packed, gently-graded gravel and dirt trails from the heart of the nation's capital north into Pennsylvania.
Historically, the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal served as a lifeline for early settlers. Today, it serves as a pathway to an unforgettable cycling experience. We'll begin with a visit to the National Mall, home to many of our nation's most cherished monuments. After bidding adieu to DC, we'll head through stylish Georgetown and then deep into rural Maryland. We'll visit Antietam National Battlefield, site of the Civil War's bloodiest battle, and Fort Fredrick, a restored 1756 British outpost. In lively Cumberland, Maryland, we'll move over to the Great Allegheny Passage, a stellar rail-trail, completed in 2006. Upon finishing in Pittsburgh, we'll catch a shuttle back to Washington.
Admission Fee: $1149 per person
