BIK102 (2of6) On the Canal (7:08)
On the Canal, Part 2 of 6. After lunch on day one and we’re halfway to Harper’s Ferry, West Virginia. Visit the Monocacy Aqueduct, railroad town Brunswick, Point of Rocks, and a few interesting shops along the way. Cyclist & producer John Urman (OnTheCanal.org) guides us through pre-Civil War history and modern scenic beauty - as well as a mighty fine cycling workout - along the Potomac River and the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal.
Saying a fun hello to start us off are two lovely ladies just stretching their cycling legs. Lisa Schamess and her daughter Mona (watched over by comfy pooch Sydney), break out their new bikes for their first cycling lessons.
Then a return visit with Leslie Reissner, who explains one of the streamlined clipless pedal systems. Here behind the famous East Wing of the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC, note the annual blooming of pink & white cherry blossoms. If you ever find yourself on the Washington DC mall, you may see Leslie on a lunchtime circuit sporting his own Canadian maple leaf red.
