The Chester Valley Trail is getting a real workout now that summer is here. It’s a nice, easy, run with a lot of beautiful landscape, some suburban views, just enough lightly rolling terrain and a few small inclines to keep things interesting.
Steve marshalled the troops before we began.
Then we were off. The bowered trail is so restorative!
People tend to drop off at points along these rides. By the time we got to Wegman’s, on the leg back, and stopped for refection, there were only four of us left.
Basil came in with me, because, you know, he’d rather have the whole experience.
On the other hand, he was perfectly happy hanging with the big guys while we ate lunch.
I’m beginning to think of this trail as if it’s a national treasure. The full ride on the main section is now about 22 miles/35.4 km; that’s a perfect length for a basic recreational ride!
