To celebrate my birthday (5/5), I wanted to cycle the Covered Bridges of Bucks County, PA. , all preserved bridges built in the later part of the 19th century. We had cue sheets from organized rides and opted to try the 63 (or metric century) this year as we’d done the 50 many times. We crossed six covered bridges.
On Sunday, we caught up with our cycling club friends who were doing a fast-paced 40 -plus miler towards Gladstone, NJ.
We didn’t have time to do the entire ride so circled back home; 22 total. Nearly a century over two days, not bad at all.
Our son Jacob and family arrived in the afternoon to take the kids on their first hike. He’d bought backpacks to carry them, reminding us how we used to carry him and his siblings. Our grandson ran the entire trail- a flat walk around a lake- until the end when he too opted for the backpack. He searched for dinosaurs, ghosts and other creatures. He became fascinated with tree holes and roots, and of course large boulders.
