My brother invited me to help chaparone his Boy Scout troop on a 50-mile bike ride along the Delaware Canal. So, I drove out from Pittsburgh to Tinicum County Park and spent the night in my little tent in sub-freezing temperatures. Under those conditions, I have no problem getting up and riding. Peddeling is much warmer than being huddled in a sleeping bag. But getting a dozen kids to get up and get going, well, that's a different matter.
By the time I got down to New Hope, I had warmed up considerably. I had stripped down to my bike shorts, long sleve shirt and windbreaker. I don't know what the temperature was but it was still pretty cold. I arrived at the bridge and went up top to see if I could find the slice of whatever it was. I couldn't. The kids were riding past, wondering what I was doing and whether they should leave the trail so I abandoned my search to keep them on the right track.
Not finding a virtual is very disappointing. New Hope is a nice little town and maybe when the weather gets nice in the spring I'll come back, ride the canal some more and try for this cache again.
