This time we started near Sharpsburg/Shepherdstown around mile 72ish on the tow path and headed north.
We didn't have any set mileage in mind; we just wanted enjoy a nice ride since we haven't done any real riding in a while...we need to our butt callouses toughened up again.
We've had quite a bit of rain in our area lately and looks like Sharpsburg has, too. Parts of the tow path were in pretty rough shape, and two spots were all but washed out. We're a hardy bunch so we didn't let that stop us.
We let Shane out of his
cage trailer to run a bit and he splatted and cut his hand again. Thankfully Bill, who is much more patient than I, was with us to contend with our little Napoleon.
We rode a smidge over 7 miles up to Lock 40 and turned around.
The kids did a really great job with no whining or complaining so we stopped at Nutter's Ice Cream in Sharpsburg for a treat. We got them the 'small' cone figuring it was a normal portion. They were HUGE so we'll definitely go with the 'kiddie' portion the next time we stop in.
We got home and crashed. Another fun Sunday afternoon with the fam!
