    Has anyone ridden the GAP? My brother moved to Ohio, a short ways from Pittsburg where the trail starts. I am thinking of visiting him this summer and having him drop me at the trailhead. If I get really ambitious, I could finish off in DC by taking the C & O. If you have done this trip and have a blog, please send me a link!

    There's a COTowpath yahoo group. Lots of people on it have ridden the GAP as well as the towpath.

    - Gray Trek Madone 4.7 road bike, mystery crack in top tube repaired by Calfee, Bontrager Affinity RXL saddle
    - Red Trek 6000 mountain bike, Bontrager Evoke WSD saddle

    Gone but not forgotten:
    - Silver Trek 2000 road bike
    - Two awesome and worn out Juliana saddles

    I've done it but I don't have a blog. It was a great trip! Bring a light for the Paw-Paw tunnel.

    I got that email too. That's what got me thinking. Id rather do it on my own I think or with a friend.

    I rode the GAP last summer, but I don't blog. I'd be happy to exchange ideas and advice with you.
