GRT - Current Pedal Stroke

This past weekend a couple friends of mine (Ray and Buck) and I rode the Greenbrier River Trail. This a beautiful "rail to trail" nestled in the mountains of eastern West Virginia. We parked my truck at the southern end of the trail near Caldwell and arranged for Chuck, owner of Appalachian Sport, to shuttle us to the northern end of the trail at Cass to begin our slow trek southward.

My companions, at least initially, failed to realize that on a bike tour, "your current pedal stroke is the best place to be".
