Birdsboro to Gibraltar

This gallery begins at the center of Birdsboro, where Armorcast Drive ends at Route 345/724.
From this point we have about four miles of on-road riding to the vicinity of Gibraltar
where we return to dedicated trail again. On the first pass, we actually went on to
the Angstad Road Trailhead which is only a few miles outside of Reading.

This is part of the Thun ("tune") section of the SRT, named for Ferdinand Thun, a 19th C. Reading industrialist.

For reference, Ye Olde Photographer clocked the round trip from the Grosstown Road
Trailhead outside of Stowe to the Angstad Road Trailhead as a hair over 25 miles.
