bike trip photos Pittsburgh - Cumberland day 1

Leaving the house EARLY.

Wilmerding is often confused with Hollywood.


Arona road parallels the Turnpike for awhile out of town


Then it becomes the beautiful part of PA.


I have never seen this lake before. The ridge in the background!


Hit the bike route in Connellsville.


Awesome. Art I can appreciate.


Bridge in Ohiopyle.


Welcome to Confluence, where the Yough meets the Casselman.


10 Miles until the summit.


The climb was awesome. I just could not get a good picture of the surroundings.


First time visiting the highest point in PA by bike! Bucketlist and all that.


Meyersdale in the distance. Going down!


Took the long cut to Meyersdale (went over a mountain rather than staying on the flat trail)... Took the trail out.




OH YES!


Here I realized that I should not have a hard time making it to Cumberland! It was awesome, I cant believe trains used to go up this slope.


Big Savage Tunnel 3200 feet long!!!!


Tomorrow's mountains in the distance.


RIDE TIME 10:56 ... OH YES!


138.28 for my highest day of the year I think?


I camped in some park in some town a few miles south of Cumberland.

138, how punk!
I've been doing this thing where I ride fast for a short period of time. Can be cool, I guess.
Been awhile since I rode over 125...

Haha, that Wilmerding sign cracks me up every time I see it. It is just like Hollywood...

It's hardcore that you carried binoculars for one view, but even more hardcore that you carried your shotgun for that sign!
