2013 DC to Pittsburgh Bike Tour – first tour ever

Back from the awesome bike trip/tour from DC to Pittsburgh!

Had all the adventures… flat tires, broken chains, falling over lots, battle wounds from gravel, gear/shifting troubles and ALL the rain and trees and debris.

fixing a flat oops so much rain!

Saw all kinds of wildlife as well: fuzzy caterpillars, mosquitoes, spiders, butterflies, birds, squirrels, chipmunks, groundhogs,ย  snakes, frogs, turtles, deer (does with their babies), a wild turkey, a baby black bear!
