Georgetown to Steeltown

This year I signed up for a guided self-supported tour with The Adventure Cycling Association.    I will be riding from D.C  to Pittsburgh along the C&O Canal and then following the Great Allegheny Passage.   We will be riding about 330 miles over 7 days.  I will be taking my vintage 2005 Specialized Sirrus.

Officially Offical 2010 season

Holly smokes, the off season in Northern Virginia was historic to say the least.   I have not seen this much snow since I was a boy in Michigan during the '78 blizzard .  Dulles Airport officially got 75" of snow fall for the season.

I have officially committed to raise $1,000 dollars fort the American Diabetes Association.   I will be ridding in the Tour de Cure on June 20th.   This is so important to me that I ask anyone reading this to join me in finding a cure and give what you can in my name. 

follow this link TdC to the donation page and give what you can.  search for Lance Lamphere.  Thanks in advance.

First ride of 2010

Today,  I had the rare oppertunity to go for a bike ride.  I put in am easy 20.5 miles.   The W&OD was  being cleared of the many evergreens that had been felled by our 45" of snow in February.  I averaged 12.5 mph.  with 3 months of zero excersize I felt the need to ride more.
