Location: Potomac River, Washington, DC to Cumberland, MD

OA has a special Leader's Only Biking Trip scheduled for Fall Break to explore the possibility of adding biking into next year's Frosh Trip. The 184.5 mile long Chesapeake & Ohio Canal is located along the north bank of the Potomac River, starting in Washington, DC and ending in Cumberland, MD. There is camping every five miles along the towpath. We'll be exploring biking the towpath and doing some circuit rides out from there to different destinations. You must have completed all of your leader training requirements but do not have to have led a trip. You'll need to provide your own bike and helmet.
