About the Adventure

Activity Level 4: Strenuous due to distance Location: Connellsville, PA Guides: Megan-lead, Joe-assist The Great Allegheny Passage (GAP) is a 150 mile rail-trail that begins in Cumberland, MD (mile 0) and ends at the Point in Pittsburgh (mile 150.) Bicycling Magazine named the GAP to its 2022 list of “dream rides” around the world. We are section biking the GAP in a series of 10 out-and-back rides. Join us for your favorite sections or sign up for all 10. What's the Trail Like? The GAP is a rail-trail paved with crushed limestone. There are a few asphalt sections near urban areas. What kind of bike is best for this trail? Most people ride hybrid or gravel bikes. Some use mountain bikes. A road bike equipped with slightly knobby tires will also work. A road bike with slick, skinny tires is unsuitable for this trip. What equipment do I need? All participants must have their own bike (or rent one from Golden Triangle in Pittsburgh.) Helmets are mandatory. Other gear to have: • a spare tube • water (hydration pack; bottle with cage) • snacks/energy food • eye protection ( sunglasses or clear safety glasses) • padded bike shorts • bike gloves • rain gear, • saddle (underseat) bag to keep keys, phone, etc. GAP Ride 4: Whitsett to Connellsville This ride is an out-and-back from Connellsville to Whitsett, where GAP Ride 3 turned around. As we cycle along the Yough River, we’ll be reminded of the rich history of the area with the towns of Layton, Dawson, and Adelaide near our route. Names like Washington and Frick and connections to the Whiskey Rebellion are represented here. Total distance is 30 miles. Elevation gain is about 212 feet. Our riding speed will be about 10 miles per hour. Event details, including meeting location, suggested gear, and other pertinent info, will be sent via email to registered participants.
