AAA World Lauds Great Allegheny Passage

By Bryan Perry |

“Riders enjoy nearly 150 uninterrupted miles of bucolic landscapes, tumbling waterfalls, river views, railroad trestles and charming towns that implore cyclists to stop and stay awhile,” writes Erin Gifford for AAA World’s The Extra Mile, after making a multiday trek from Downtown Pittsburgh to Cumberland. Staying in a combination of guesthouses, campgrounds, and inns, Gifford documents her GAP trip with splendid photography and tips on making the end-to-end journey. “Over four days, I chatted with cyclists from all over—Seattle, Cleveland, Miami,” she notes, “I was alone but never truly alone. That’s the spirit of the Great Allegheny Passage.” Read her entire story here.
