My 2012 Solo Ride

Finally just now posting pictures from my solo ride this past summer. The title of this trip was Bike, Baseball and Beer. The main objective of the trip was to end up in Cooperstown NY to see one of my favorite ball players as a kid inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, Barry Larkin. On the way I wanted to tour Sam Adams Brewery, Magic Hat Brewery and Yuengling Brewery, as well as see Fenway Park and Yankee Stadium. It was a great trip with great scenery as I rode from Columbus Ohio across Pennsylvania into New York, up the coast through Boston into Maine back south through New Hampshire/Vermont and into Cooperstown. I could tell you many stories including one where I lost my wallet in New Hampshire but got back 4 hours later...thanks to a man with integrity. But instead, here are the pictures.

Total Miles: Shit I forget but in the neighborhood of 2,300 in 5 days of actual riding. I spent 3 days in Cooperstown. Longest day was when I rode back, Cooperstown back to Columbus. About 600 miles.
