Several people have asked me about the wonderful helmet mirror that I use.  I have tried others and more information  regarding the one that I love and has worked the best for me can be found at Safe Zone Mirror

If you’re ever in the area and wish to go on an amazing, easy, beautiful, safe, and historical cycling/hiking/camping adventure of any length, you owe it to go check out the C & O Canal  Experience that and then branch out to the GAP and beyond.  Thank me later or better yet, invite me along.
