While we don't always want to have to change plans that fast for our riders, we're really happy this worked out. Glad you had a great time on the Katy Trail, Jim. We'll get the GAP/C&O next year!

We had a Really fun trip. The GAP trail is amazingly beautiful. Full of supper views of rivers, rapids quant towns with lots of history along the way. The trail is smooth and shaded for the most part and easy to ride.
