GAP: Frostburg to Confluence

7.12.2014 52m
Having been dropped off in Frostburg, MD we started today's ride at MP16 on the GAP, riding west. We climbed for 6 miles to the Savage Vista, where I noticed a string of Tibetan prayer flags in the wind. Very cool.

Continued climbing the two more miles to the Continental Divide and then enjoyed the bliss of descent. Rode into Meyersdale and had some ice cream.

Rode into Rockwood, made our way to the Rockwood Opera House, was genuinely surprised at the quality of the pizza. Pressed on for another 18 (20, really, when you consider the Bypass that isn't included in the official numbers) and made it to Confluence.

Stayed at the River's Edge Loft. This is my new fave place to stay in Confluence. Spacious, attractive, air conditioned. (Needs wifi, but hey). Really a great place, and quite private. Had dinner at River's Edge Cafe, most excellent.
