The first leg of my journey will be a bicycle ride from here in Nazareth to Philly. I'll take the D and L trail to Bristol, then navigate the East Coast Greenway to Philly's 30th Street Station. It's about 90 miles. If I'm lucky, I'll do that in one day If there are too many obstacles around Bristol, I'll take a train. Not sure the roads there are safe for cyclists unfamiliar with them.
After a night in Philly, I'll ride Amtrak the next day to Pittsburgh. That's a 9.5 hour ride. If I have daylight, I'll get a few miles under my belt. I'll likely spend a night in or south of Pittsburgh.
I'll be riding the Great Allegheny Passage, a 333-mile bike ride to D.C. I plan to complete this in three-four days. Maybe take an extra day if I see something I like.
Once I hit DC, I'll take Amtrak back to Philly and ride home.
That's the tentative plan. I might make the ride a bit shorter by skipping the ride to Philly. I might even drive to Pittsburgh and start there. The one constant is the ride from Pittsburgh to DC.
Then you can bury what's left of me.
Some of you are avid cyclists and might be familiar with this ride. Any suggestions?
