I keep trying to increase my distance on my rides to test/increase my endurance. After being introduced to the Custis Trail by my friend Jourdan, I went on another ride of it. I’m not a big fan of riding somewhere that I haven’t been yet. It’s more of a psychological thing as I don’t know the secrets of the trail. There’s a corkscrew on the Custis Trail that drops you onto Lee Highway; I probably would have had some braking difficulty had I been riding it alone the first time and would have come upon it at a higher rate of speed than suggested.
I did add a small spur jaunt into Alexandria, which will probably be the goal of another ride to get down to 495 and Jones Point Park, and probably a stop by the Old Presbyterian Cemetery to pay my respects to my Uncle Chip.
