BTG handles all the logistics of riding GAP & C&O canal trip. Accommodations & food were outstanding. Innkeepers have indicated that BTG staff are the only outfitters to have vetted their premises. Total ride distance was 381 miles.

We had a lovely time, the accommodations and handling of logistics were perfect. The trail itself was everything we had read about; no traffic, easy cycling, beautiful terrain, no traffic. A great getaway and easily doable as a family.
