A life long dream fulfilled ... a great cause ... new friends ... amazing support

Week of 09/06/09 - Leah Rides 50k

Leah completed her longest solo ride to date ... a 50k (31 mile) adventure on the Western Maryland Rail Trail. We started in Fort Frederick at the Big Pool trailhead and went 15.5 miles out and back though Hancock and past some scenic mountain ranges and old mills. "Casey Cannondale" averaged an impressive 11.5 miles per hour.

With the ride, I logged another 140 mile week of training. Saturday saw a solid 56 mile ride to Sykesville with some hilly stretches in Caroll County.
