Allegations Come In, Bill O'Reilly Goes Out - You Can't Explain That

Little Italy, Wilmington DE and points north...

The original DuPont gunpowder mills along the Brandywine River mark the dividing line between Wilmington and Northern Delaware's "Chateau Country".

Starting out in DUer LynneSin's neighborhood, we head north to take a look at Montchanin, Delaware and then to one of my favorite "happy places" at a new top speed....

Little Italy, up the Brandywine to Montchanin and turn left...

A little bit of everything on today's ride, including my favorite spot in Valley Garden Park down by Hoopes Reservoir.

White Clay Creek

If you grew up anywhere near Newark, but haven't been down to White Clay Creek in a few years, it's worth a look-see.

This ride starts at North College in Newark, and goes along the road, then the trail, then the path, to Landenberg.

The Mike Castle Trail

The Mike Castle Trail now runs along the north side of the canal all the way from Delaware City to Chesapeake City. There are a couple of parking areas along the way, so you can start from Lums Pond, St. Georges, or a little bit closer to ride into Delaware City and have lunch.

Going over St. George's Bridge is optional....

Since Kali wanted to see more climbing...

This is, literally, the only thing there is to climb in Delaware south of I-95....

Have we done "who will be Mike Pence's VP nomination" yet?

One shudders to imagine. Huckabee seems to have the requisite degree of outright stupidity.

Iron Hill

(and a look back at the Iron Hill Museum for all of you elementary field trip veterans)

Built in an old one-room schoolhouse, the Iron Hill Museum is an overlooked quirky attraction of Newark. (yes, the petrified log is still there)

The best time to visit is coming up during their "Archaeology Days" with interpretative guides to the significance that Iron Hill played in the regional colonial iron trade. Check out their site at: http://www.ironhill-museum.org/

Of course, the park is great too. Incidentally the speed limit in the park is 15 mph.


Today in Church...


Endurance cyclist Mike Hall killed in collision

Mike Hall was an amazing cyclist in the extreme endurance category.

If you haven't seen the movie Inspired to Ride, it follows the riders on the cross country cycling race along the 4,233 Trans America Trail.

He has done so many epic rides:


"Hall also holds a number of other world records, including the fastest unsupported ride across the continental United States (just over 17 days) and the fastest ride all the way around the world (91 days not counting transfers, good for an average of over 200 miles a day). He organized the Transcontinental Race, which spans the entirety of Europe and encourages riders to take different routes every year."
