Philadelphia has a couple of "City to Shore" rides, where you ride your bike essentially from Philadelphia to the Jersey Shore. As it so happens, I am riding a 100 mile route in October as part of the MS City to Shore ride. But there are other ways to bike to the shore. Like hop on your bike and get those wheels turnin'!
Philadelphians often speak of the Delaware River. It's a Philadelphia border, of course they know what it is! But adventures? I am not talking about tall ships or rubber ducks here, Philadelphia. Do you know how long the Delaware River actually is? Wikipedia tells me it is 301 miles long. That’s a lot of miles left unexplored if you only stick to Philadelphia’s portion of the Delaware. I don't blame you, I didn't really start getting out there until last week. But I do have two activities for you to try if you want to branch out river puns!
In the nature of finally getting out there and doing what makes me happy, I've got a hike for you as well as a bike. How exciting, no?
