Pittsburgh to DC on Recumbents
I've heard a lot about biking from Pittsburgh to DC.... sounds like a lot of fun. My friend and I both ride recumbents -- Terratrike Cruiser and Longbikes Eliinator G2. The distance is not a problem. However we have heard that the trails may be fairly rough and bumpy. On a regular bike this is not a big deal BUT on our recumbents we find this to be a bit hard on the body. Any comments or advice? Also -- we are in our 50's & 60's and will be spending the nights in hotels/ B&B's. Anyone have a good recommendation for a trip coordinator? I've heard they exist but no one has personal exprience with any of them.
I just completed McKeesport to DC
I just completed Mckeesport, PA to DC on a Dragonflyer trike, while pulling a BOB trailer. It is much more difficult to do on 3 wheels because I always had 2 wheels off the beaten path. The beaten path is very narrow. With only 2 wheels you can stay within the path. There is absolutely no need for a trip coordinator. Two very useful web links would be:
