136 miles on 13/6 gettit? Ok, moving swiftly on. This was essentially the same route that I toured over two days last year, but done in one day. It gave a great and varied ride on quiet country roads, with plenty of interesting scenery along the way. I included an ascent of Sugarloaf mountain, the nearest “mountain” to DC and a personal favourite point to ride to. Any ride from home to Sugarloaf and back is a solid day out. The forecast was mixed, with warnings of isolated thunderstorms and flash flooding. As the following photos show, there was some heavy weather at times during the day but thankfully I managed to stay clear of anything serious, only getting caught a few brief showers.
