Media to New Tripoli (just west of Allentown) (66 miles)

This route goes from Media to New Tripoli.  Toward the beginning there are some roads with potentially heavy traffic (Rte 252, 23 and 724), but it was early on a Sunday Morning, so I thought traffic would be minimal.  I got the route mostly from Mapquest (I used the "Advanced" options to avoid main roads and interstates), with a few changes to avoid a couple short highway stretches.

This route intersects with my Media/Valley Forge route if you'd like to avoid Rte 252. 

I also have a (longer) return route that uses Pennsylvania Bike Route L, that I plan to use to come back; hopefully it will have less traffic.
