Fell asleep in: Warwick Woods Campsite, Pennsylvania
Miles ridden: 66.3
Weather: Overcast but dry – and no wind.
Pennsylvania appears to be quite hilly. Or at least the bits we’ve cycled through today have been anyway – we’re knackered and more than a bit saddle sore.
We’ve been through more affluent areas, one much poorer one, and had a great 9.5 mile run on an off-road bike path called the Schuylkill River Trail (nope, I don’t know how to pronounce it) that was ever so slightly downhill all the way. We also cycled through Valley Forge National Historical Park, which i must google…
Will also got his bike fixed and is now the proud owner of a full set of gears! They came in handy this afternoon, that’s for sure… Bloody hills! Did I mention there were lots of hills today?
It’s our first night of camping – a lack of grocery stores meant we had to dine on some tins of Campbells Chicken Noodle Soup – which was pretty horrible. I’m too tired to type any more, so that’s all for now folks. I’m very impressed that the campsite has wifi though!
