Today we headed north towards Wilmington hoping to get to Philadelphia. It was a pretty nice ride and the weather was very nice. Much better than the weather yesterday riding into Dover. The only hill I climbed was the bridge over the Chesapeake and Delaware canal which is a man made channel that connects the Chesapeake Bay to the Delaware Bay. We assumed I couldn't ...

There was no need to read all the info this time, we just headed straight for the bell and took some pictures. It was the perfect way to pass some time, and after 15 minutes or so, we headed sheepishly back through the security gates for Independence Hall.
