Le Tour de Villes

I have friends who live in Berks County, Pennsylvania, in the Tulpehocken Valley. I live near Lancater, about 35 miles from their very peaceful place, situated on a road that might see five cars a day. Great bicycling! I began these weekend rides about three and a half years ago, following two major back surgeries in a year. I have been riding all my life, but after that I just wanted to get my legs under me again, and explore the possibilities of my dream of long-distance, self-supported touring. My friends readily agreed to allow me to stay overnight in one of their spare bedrooms, and I am very grateful for their hospitality.
