The first leg of the tour concluded with a great show at the Velocity Bicycle Cooperative in Alexandria, VA.  A great audience and a very cool space made for a fantastic way to end the tour.

Philly, Baltimore, DC

A week of great shows (see photos below), a great weekend in Philadelphia, and some urban riding from Philly to Baltimore and on to Washington, DC, and I am more or less done with the tour. Highlights from the past week or so: A brief kayak trip on the Musconetcong River, a bike tune up by the guys at the Bethlehem Bicycle Cooperative, the audience at the Weavers Way Coop who all brought their own folding chairs to a former commercial garage where we held the show, a ride in the 2nd annual Philadelphia Naked Bike Ride, a roof deck performance with a view of the Baltimore skyline to a great gathering of nursing students, and an excellent crowd here in Washington last night to support the Mt. Rainier Bicycle Coop and The Neighborhood Farm Initiative.

One last show in Alexandria, VA on Friday.  Stay tuned for the second leg of the tour, coming to the south in late October.

New York has been the state of half days, with 3 days in a row of 30 miles or less.  Had a really fun show in Kingston, NY and a great visit with my wonderful hosts Kristen and Miguel.  Then rode past Ellenville and camped on the towpath of the D+H canal, the 1800's way to get from the Hudson River to the Delaware.  In 2010 I recommend a bicycle.  Found myself in Port Jervis by 11 am on Tuesday and had a great afternoon hanging out at the Port Java Cafe with Judy and whoever else popped in there.  The show was really special, a great community audience, great singers!!  Today I was lucky enough to ride on back roads through the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation area.   A great ride, including the very challenging hill with brought me to the top of the Appalachians.  I am currently at the Musconetcong Watershed Association Headquarters (A LEED Certified building!!) and it looks like it's going to be a great show tonight!
