The Colonial parkway looks like a ride my wife and I could enjoy. What route is the 5 and Dime? I'd think a route 510, but don't see anything on google that would relate to 5 and dime.

Also, what is the name of the ferry? This could be a nice summer ride with my wife or daughter.

Thanks.

I was referring to route 5 and route 10. The Jamestown ferrys will take you to the parkway.

Hey, did you hear that Dumfries is going to get annexed by Manassas? They’re going to call it Dumassas!

Oh, and I wouldn’t head out 66 on a bike going to 81; not when you can take 50 through Middleburg and avoid the 66 traffic.

It ain't a scenic ride. But you should really consider Rolling Thunder on Memorial Day weekend.

It's an experience you will remember for the rest of your life.

VITO ---- Phoenixville ?
My PSU college roommate was from Birchrunville. Not much motorcycle riding 50 years ago. Most of the roads were not paved. But great times in my Austin-Healy Sprite.

Yes, Phoenixville. About 30 miles northwest of Philadelphia.

I ride through Birchrunville once in awhile. Drop me a line if you are ever in the area.

PA trips are usually to State College. Son and family live there. But I'll definitely look you up if I get farther east.
