Bike to the ‘Burgh

During the Independence Day weekend of 2005, my friend Ray and I bicycled from my place east of Cleveland to Pittsburgh and back. The trip down was 151 miles; by eliminating a few wrong turns, the return trip was 143 miles.

Our trip mostly followed the route known as the Cleveland-Pittsburgh Connector, which joins the Adventure Cycling Association’s Northern Tier Route with the Great Allegheny Passage.

Thanks to my friends Henry and Emma for putting us up (and putting up with us) for the couple of days of our stay.
