This was not a Major Taylor event but there were 5 Philly MTCC Members on the trip so I thought I would provide a ride report for this EPIC cycling adventure.  It is the most challenging cycling adventure I have ever done... So far.

Use the link below to access the Ride Report with complete ride details.  IT'S WORTH IT!
