Sunday Morning Group Ride: 72 miles

Sunday Morning Group Ride: 72 miles

I’d been looking forward to this ride for much of the week. I was going to be riding into Upper Bucks in Pennsylvania and going over two covered bridges I hadn’t visited in some time (Sheard’s Mill and Knechts). Also, I was going to be trying out some “sticky rice” rice creations I had made with the help of a cookbook Pia had loaned me a few weeks ago. Pia and I departed from Lambertville at 8:30 or so and crossed over to PA at Lambertville. We made no rest stops during the ride, and we covered quite a few hills. Everything went very well. There were 6 historic covered bridges on the ride: Loux, Sheard’s Mill, Knechts, Erwinna, Frankenfield, and Tohickon. CLICK HERE to see the route.

    the best covered bridge in that area is Uhlerstown rd over the canal 🙂

    • Thanks for the comment. We hit the bridge you mention about a month ago along with the fairly demanding hill behind it. The ride we did in the post was going in the wrong direction to do the Uhlerstown covered bridge because we would have had to descend down the hill to the bridge. And I think it’s a one-way road on that hill?

    the hill is (of course) the reason to like that bridge
    **And I think it’s a one-way road on that hill?**
    it’s uphill only
