I had to work for this one


I took 77 to Greencastle, then 16 to Mconnelsburg, then 30 the rest of the way. Oh how I love those roads, shame they all had so much junk on them, this might have to become one of my monthly rides. About 90 miles of twisty low traffic bliss. The final climb uphill before getting to the Somerset area is where it got interesting. Temperature was at least 10 degrees lower the wind was 2x as bad and the 3 or so inches of fresh snow was drifting across the roads. Still wasn't bad until Buckstown road, road was drifted over and went from spots of packed ice and snow to 2-3" deep powder. Only dropped the bike once, was an uphill section and the wind was blowing so hard it slid me and the bike sideways 5' and off the road. I'm defrosting a bit now at the Starbucks in Breezewood. will add a bit more later when I get home.
