About the Adventure
Activity Level 4: Strenuous (length and riding speed) Guides: Lead-Joe, Assistant-Megan Location: Emlenton, PA Explore one of the most scenic bike paths in western Pennsylvania: the Allegheny River Trail! The ART is a 32 mile rail-trail running from Emlenton to Oil City, PA. The Allegheny River in this area is a National Wild and Scenic River, and Bald Eagle sightings are common. We'll ride through two lengthy unlit tunnels, Rockland and Kennerdale. Bring a bike light or headlamp for these! There is a short gravel section in which we will walk our bikes. Our ride will be a gentle climb on paved surface. We will maintain an average riding speed of 10-12 mph. This is an out-and-back ride with a total distance of 39.5 miles. Elevation gain: 130 feet This outing is limited to 10 riders. If the event is full, email firstname.lastname@example.org to get on the waitlist. Heavy rain cancels the event in which case you will be fully refunded. WAC Biking Safety and Etiquette 1. Helmets are required and must be worn while riding. 2.
