Horse Country Near Valley Forge

What a beautiful day. Who'd believe that we're still in March! I rode about 40 miles solo on some of my favorite roads in Delaware and Chester Counties: Darby, Sproul, Conestoga, and North Valley Forge. I wandered around and through Valley Forge National Park and then further west on Yellow Springs Road where I discovered this wonderful horse ranch.

Not bad for an iPhone video

Chester County Rideabout

EZ Riders Scooter Club sponsored a scenic ride through some nice wooded parts of Chester County. We met at Valley Forge Park at 10:30. The temp was in the low 40's but my hands were toasty warm thanks to my new electric gloves.

We met at Valley Forge Historial Park
Hammy led the group of six along some twisty roads near creeks and Ridley Park, but nothing particularly hard. First time I rode into Delaware. We had lunch at Pure Bread Deli. All sandwiches named after dog breeds - get it? I split off solo on the ride home rather than detour out of my way back to Valley Forge. Fun ride, about 80 miles in all.
