An Epic Ride: Preamble

Bicycle Artwork
I consider myself fortunate to have friends in my profession who share my interests outside the job. There is a tradition after our annual chapter business meeting to gather for a casual bike ride, usually a short ride in the area just for fun. It’s a nice way to enjoy some time together after a meeting.

When we heard that the meeting would be held in Pittsburgh this year, some of us had mused over the idea of bicycling from Pittsburgh to DC. Schedules were compared, routes were planned, and the idea became reality.

A 334-mile bike ride is challenging enough as it is. Challenges we didn’t foresee were the government shutdown, and the aftereffects of a tropical storm. Through sheer determination, we overcame those challenges– and had a great time doing it.
