Brita Climate Ride 2009 - Day 4 (Susquehanna River to Leakin Park in Baltimore, MD)

Day 4 (62 miles): We begin the day by pedaling across a long bridge crossing the mighty Susquehanna. The Susquehanna flows furiously in the springtime and is a mere trickle by mid-summer. After a few miles we enter Maryland and ride past beautifully manicured farms and stunning country estates. It’s hard to imagine that Washington DC is so close. This is the area that DC cyclists prize—the roads are quiet and curvy and the manicured countryside reflects the long history of the Mid-Atlantic region. Soon we enter the small towns that surround DC. The roads become busier and we realize that we are approaching our destination—Baltimore. Tonight we camp in a sprawling 300-acre city park on the edge of Baltimore called Leakin Park. The Outward Bound School, which calls Leakin Park home, has invited us to camp and use their facility.

After an amazing Day 3, Day 4 may have proved to be a let down in terms of photos, but with the new route after lunch, some inventive riders and a sense of play, Day 4 was an all-around fun filled day without the pressure of "getting every single person."

Ah, the post card.

Love the fisheye lens.

No, I did not ask her to do this, it just happened.

The 1st hill of the day.

And yes, I've seen the shot he has of me taking this picture.


Best shot of the day by far.
