Adventuring 2020

Adventuring 2020

It’s time to start drawing up plans and dreams for 2020! What new activity would you like to try?

WHY NOT???

Some Plans for 2020

I have small plans and big plans. Some are occurring on set dates, others are wide open to time frames.

Bike Route north of Steubenville

This is a 26 mile route. This would be good to ride to get out of my comfort zone and off the rail trail.

Erie to Pittsburgh Route

It’s not that far. I don’t think I would do it as a loop. If I did it as a loop, I would do something like this route and take different roads. That is some hilly country in western Pennsylvania.

Rockstar Virginia Race

270 mile race in Virginia. The date changed from April 18 to May 2. I’m already signed up for the Outrun 24 Hour Race. Since I paid the registration fee for the footrace, I will probably be sticking to that event.

Outrun 24 Hour Race

This is a timed event, a one mile loop May 2.  I plan on walking a 50K. I would like to complete 50 miles in 24 hours. I need to start walking more to train for this!

Wabash Cannonball Trail

I found out about this rail trail in my program planning for  Buckeye Trailfest 2019. I’m planning on biking this in the spring in time for the bird migration.

Winter Camping

There is a winter camp out sponsored by the Buckeye Trail January 11. I have not decided yet whether I will attend. I have never winter camped-so why not? (I suppose I could also go do this at Salt Fork State Park closer to home.)

Biking the Buckeye Trail

50 percent of the Buckeye Trail is on roads. I mapped out the first 200 miles of the BT on the Ride with GPS app, from Lake Erie to Salt Fork State Park. This is looking extremely do-able. I could start at Lake Erie and  bike home.

Allegheny Mountain Loop

This is the BHAG. I don’t know if I will be in good enough shape to bike it this year.

The Allegheny Mountains Loop is a 400-mile bicycle route created and mapped by the ACA. The route begins and ends at Virginia Tech’s War Memorial Chapel in Blacksburg, VA. A “Grand Depart” of Individual Time Trials is proposed each year on the last Friday in APRIL at 6:00am EST.

These are just some of my plans.  When you declare your goals out loud-or on a blog post-you are far more likely to go out and do them.
