C+O Canal completed - 184 miles in 2 days

As part of the Tour de Canal 2007, I rode 184 miles September 8th and 9th. All told, I raised $900. The event raised over $200,000.

The trail is a hard packed dirt road that passes 60+ locks in various states of repair. There are old brick houses, and impressive stone work from an era where the best option for transportation was to build a canal and have mules tow barges on it.
