The Long Ride Home #clmooc

The Long Ride Home

It has become a tradition….   An annual bike ride on the Pine Creek Rail Trail that follows Pine Creek from Wellsboro, PA through the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon to Jersey Shore, PA.  Initially, it was just my husband and me, but as my children grew older, they accompanied us.  Now, it’s my two older kids, Jacob and Emma, along with a few of their athletic, hardcore friends.  Since we can barely fit this trip into our hectic schedule, we have decided to make it a Fourth of July tradition.

Here are a few of our highlights.

Miles 40-55 were long and hot.  Legs were tired and butts were getting sore.

Last stop near Ramsey.  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA This stretch home was very familiar as we frequently bike this area.

The end of our trip entering the Boro of Jersey Shore.
