I completed my goal of bicycling the Schuylykill River Trail this summer over the course of several different rides ... parking my car at one site, biking 4-6 miles then back to the car and then choosing a different location for my next ride. From the Art Museum to the end is about 22 miles ... I did some sections more than once on rides with various family members. I also did a portion of the Audubon Trail and the Wissahickon Trail. For the most part it is a pleasant trail... wide and 95% paved. I got to enjoy various portions of the trail with both my daughters, my husband, my sister-in-law and brother-in-law, and two nephews and one niece. Next year perhaps I will attempt to do the whole trail in one ride. Our longest ride was 14 miles just last weekend. It's great to live so close to a nice public recreation area.
I am an East Coast girl; having grown up near Long Island Sound, I love water. My father taught me to love nature and the outdoors. We would go bird watching or fishing together in the early morning. From there it was a small step to see that all this beauty must have a Creator. In college I discovered that God is real and have been following Him ever since.
