Harper's Ferry - Frederick

Route Map

March 2, 2001. 80 miles

For the first time in 20 years, I was not going to be on the ski slopes for my Birthday, since I had just moved to Virginia from Colorado two months earlier. Since I had not been on my motorcycle since moving, I decided it would be an acceptable alternative to take my first (if relatively short) ride through my new region of the country. Of course, a brewpub (or two) was also on the agenda.

Since moving to Virginia, I've been getting interested in the rich civil war history here, and thought that a good place to start would be where some think the war really started - Harper's Ferry (it didn't hurt that it was only 30 miles away). From there I proceeded to Frederick and the Brewer's Alley for some lunch before checking out the Flying Barrel supply store. I then proceeded to the Blue Ridge Brewery before heading for home.
