I'm planning to leave from southeastern Michigan in late December and ride all the way to DC. Is that possible? Has anyone ridden the GAP in the winter? I have a pretty decent cross bike and have ridden multi-day, long distance rides before. Thanks in advance for any insight.

Please note that the Big Savage Tunnel along the GAP Trail is always closed from Dec. 1 through April 10. The GAP Trail is wonderful, but I wouldn't advise it during winter. A lot of it runs through a snow belt. Here's some info.
