We, ages 59 & 71 rode from DC to McKeesport end of May, 2011. Lots of wet areas on C&O due to flooding and a few bad days of storms which left many trees down on the C&O and a few on the GAP. We stayed at motels & B&Bs with one night in MD at a county-run conference center. All in all a great ride. The GAP Trail is especially well-maintained, partly I'm sure because the Potomac doesn't rise onto it. We can supply details of motels, etc. To answer question I've seen several times on this board re: tires, we rode on 700x37 Continental Travel Contacts and had no problem with them - no flats, they handled the muddy & washed out sections very well.

Thanks for your report. It is helpful. Approximately how many miles per day did you ride?
