August 20, 2023 | Just a quick update:  we have had a busy few days (with really poor cell coverage), but made it into Washington, D.C. today.  We were met by Tom S who showed us the way to the Lincoln Memorial and provided goodies (apples, bars, etc.) to welcome us to the city.  Thanks, Tom. :-)

The last five days saw us get to Pittsburgh (on pretty terrible roads) then follow the Great Allegheny Passage (GAP) trail to Cumberland, MD, then the C&O (Chesapeake & Ohio) Canal Towpath right into DC, the latter of which followed the Potomac Rover (which we swam in twice).  The GAP was pretty good – easy to ride, good services and fast.  The C&O was less enjoyable but provided camping, was flat and was shaded.  We camped out all four nights on the trails.

Tomorrow we head out to Annapolis, MD, to put the tyres in the water and finish the coast-to-coast adventure.  Then we fly home on Tuesday. I cannot wait!  To be honest, we cannot believe we are nearly done; we have become so used to getting up, riding 60 - 90 miles, eating and then finding somewhere to sleep, it feels unreal to actually be going home.
