    That would have been incredibly awesome and fun. I will take a rain check for the next bike camping trip.

    And there needs to be another one. Please try to improve your weather planning.

    The folks at White's Ferry just noted Sunday looks to be when they will be closing due to high water. We may get there and not be able to get back the same way. Perhaps Komorebi has a nice Maryland/DC side return route?

    Yep, this is Plan C: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/27668713.

    For Plan D, see post # 56 above.

    If White's Ferry is closed and you need to return on the MD/DC side, just take River Road all the way to Falls Road and MacArthur Blvd. MacArthur has a bike trail along most of it, although the road itself is a nice ride too. From there you can hop on the Capital Crescent and get home. Something like this?

    Or, y'know... signal the ark to pick you up.

    Come to CC happy hour tonight for some fortitude and resolve in liquid form!

    Random q: anyone know how long the detour of the C&O under the Beltway is supposed to last?

    TIA

    Plan C looks like Plan B.

    Just how is River Road for riding out that way on a Sunday late morning? In the rain.

    I would expect it to be fine. From the lockhouse to Seneca Creek you're likely to see almost nobody. It's gravel for about 5 miles where it crosses Horsepen Branch, then turns to pavement. Past that it's a well worn training route for MoCo cyclists. Once you make the right turn at the Seneca Rd intersection, it gets a decent shoulder and is smooth sailing to Potomac.

    YMMV but it beats calling Uber?

    I'm considering taking the Towpath regardless of its condition. Would anyone else be up for that?
