Tonight's stop at the Woodchuck Hostel in Damascus, Virginia. It's an intersection of both the Appalachian Trail and the 76 TransAmerica Bike Route. Today 57.8 miles for a total of 476.8 Miles. 3635 feet up. 4042 down. The climb up was a relentless constant for two ten mile stretches but the last 15 miles were a mostly exhilarating coast down following the waters and waterfalls of the river into Damascus.
