My super athletic brother, James, and … I … decided to “ride bikes” earlier this week from Flourtown, PA to College Park, MD. We left on Sunday from our parents’ house in Flourtown after a delicious Mother’s Day brunch. I snapped these photos with my iPhone throughout the 4 day trip.
The first night we stayed at James’ girlfriend Dara’s house in Newark, DE. We were so happy to arrive at her front door after a long day of “just riding bikes”. She put a sign up that read:
Bates Bikes Motel. Love her!!!
Somehow we made it to Baltimore!! We met this fellow bike-enthusiast outside Baltimore on day 3. He started in NYC about a week ago and he’s headed to California. Good luck Peter!We couldn’t find a hotel under $500 in the downtown DC area so we settled on College Park. It felt so good only riding for 35.08 miles the third day!
What do you do when finish a fun bike trip from Philadelphia to DC? Obviously get a mani/pedi!! Look who drove down to meet us in DC?! Steve, James and I toured DC a bit and wondered around the Smithsonians for the day. One of the highlights was finding out what we would look like as early humans at the Natural Sciences Origins exhibit. James is continuing his biking adventures all the way to Lexington, Kentucky for his best friend’s wedding on May 25th. You can do it James! Love you!!
