Today I participated in the Lancaster Bicycle Club's
annual Covered Bridge Metric Century Bicycle Ride with about 2200 other cyclists
along with the Turkey Hill cow
A metric century is 100 kilometers or 62 miles. There were other options including a 1/2 metric century(50km) and a 1/4 metric century(25 km).
The bucolic scenery in Lancaster County makes it a wonderful place to ride.
The bonus was all the covered bridges that we got to ride through.
It was a rainy day. These horses were the only ones smart enough to find shelter under a tree!
