Overnight bike adventure out of DC – Day 1

The summer bike tour with my brother is just around the corner, so I was keen to head out and do a shake-down tour to test my kit. Lexi was a willing companion so earlier this afternoon we packed the panniers and headed out for a quick overnight adventure along the C&O canal.

Despite the late start, it was a beautiful afternoon and evening and with the long hours of daylight we were able to make good progress out of DC. Two punctures slowed us down somewhat but we were still smiling when we reached camp, from where I’m now writing this blog post. Here’s a selection of photos from today:
