    Sellersville, PA -- Home again, home again

    [HOMEAGAIN] After stopping briefly at Pocono Whitewater to socialize with Gary's friends, we set about conquering the serious climbs up Cherry Hill and Little Gap. These difficulties dispatched, we rewarded ourselves with giant ice cream shakes, shook hands, and parted ways to ride home individually. Tomorrow, we will ride one last time, converging at TJ's for the final ride into AC via the Tacony Palmyra, RT 30, a wheel dunk near Tennessee Ave, then on to dinner at the Pirate's Den in Brigantine.

    Today's ride was very easy, powered, as we were, with the excitement of getting home, not to mention a decent tailwind. Blue Mountain and Cherry Hill are big, but not quite as big as the Wyoming Valley climbs. We both did just fine, riding conservatively.

    From our ice cream stop at the foot of Blue Mountain, Gary continued on PA Bike Route L, eventually by way of the T-Town Velodrome where he did a 200m sprint fully loaded -- he claims he has pictures to prove it -- then on to his home. Me, I rode the Tom R's 300K brevet route backwards to Richlandtown Rd, thence to familiar roads home. I added an improvement to the brevet route suggested by Gary taking me over South Mountain through the Lehigh campus rather than on the busy PA 378.
