You can get there on a Rando bike.
I've been riding mine for a bit more than a year now, and it's taken me to a few places.

It's probably no coincidence that during that time, I've met three other people riding VO Rando frames in Maryland and Virginia. Hi Bob, Mark, and Steve!

The snapshots in this post are my GPS tracks from those rides, all layered one on top of the other.
When you zoom way out, it's just a big ball of spaghetti, covering almost all of Maryland and Northern Virginia, with some stray strands in Southern Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and one reaching offscreen to North Carolina...

The rando has also passed through Gettysburg, PA (below) several ways, but it looks like we missed a few. We'll have to fix that!

PS: If any of you collect routes, you can download the ones shown here from my ridewithgps page.
Curious about how to make your own tracks? I use motionX; some of my buddies use Garmin, and there seems to be an option for Andriod users too.
Thanks for reading! Happy riding, everyone!
