Pennsylvania Dutch 55 miles
I went on a nice medium length bike ride through Amish country. Eastern Pennsylvania may be the best kept secret in road biking. It may be what Yosemite is to climbers. There are just endless miles of winding country roads. Hilly enough to keep it interesting but not ridiculous.
The ride was 55 miles and gained 3400 feet elevation. There were a hundred small hills, and 2 very long big ones. My max speed was 46.2 mph this time, but I’ve topped 50 coming down from that same hill before.
I managed to take some shots and some footage while riding and not totally wipe out.
