Nothing says Pittsburgh winter like cycling. I am here to tell you that you are invited to ride your bike to DC with me. No, I will not ride in the middle of the winter. For those who don’t know there are two trails that connect, to run from Pgh to DC. I have ridden it many times, and have led groups on it. Here are some details.
May 25th-May 30th. The ride takes 5 days and each day averages 68 miles. We get rooms in each town we stop in and get showers, dinner, and a possible libations.
Great question as I have done this with one other person and led twenty-five. So we will see who joins us.
How will we get back?
Depends on group size. Larger groups, we all chipped in and rented a touring bus. Smaller groups, we get picked up by friends or CeJ.
How good do you have to be at riding?
This is not a hard ride. The steepest grade is 1.5 percent. It follows the old railroad tracks so isn’t too bad. It is more mentally fatiguing than anything else.
How do I sign up?
Talk to Todd Hamer.
So get in RYDE class and get ready to ride with me.
