The things I like most about exploring a city are usually insignificant to most people. I usually stop to watch, smell, sometimes taste what I'm experiencing. I took small clips of video while I was in NY. Click the image, above, to download the short video.

Yesterday I rode my new carbon fiber road bike to work and back. I love this bike. I don't think I'll take it through the ghetto ever again though. Too many pot holes etc. I want to keep it nice. I tried to go straight to work and straight home but did stop downtown and take a couple pictures in an alley.

Gettysburg National Military Park was pretty amazing. I squinted my eyes and tried to envision what it must have been like back then, as I slowly rolled through the very same battle fields. The battles took place on the first three days of July in 1863, so the weather must have been about the same as it was while I rolled along... except I was wearing extra light breathable material and they were wearing heavy wool uniforms... I tried to imagine how about 51,000 soldiers were killed, wounded, captured or unaccounted for in those three days. ... amazing.
After a powerful stay at the battle fields I headed back to Hanover for more fuel before I headed south to Baltimore. A Snickers bar and another Poweraid would get me going again. The going was much slower on the way home. My legs were getting pretty tired. My shoulders were pretty sore from hunching over the bars for so many hours but I trudged along and kept reeling in the pavement.
I had one flat tire on the way home. A pinch flat cause by a sharp rock or shard of metal delayed my slow crawl home by 5 minutes. I didn't mind, I swapped the tube out and was on my way.
All totaled; I put in 120 miles and spent 9.5 hours in the saddle.
Ready to do it again (in a couple weeks)
