Crushing the Commonwealth

Crushing the Commonwealth or,
this is a long ride for someone with nothing to think about.


Last weekend in April, Philadelphia to Pittsburgh.

Route follows PA Bicycle Route S with connectors to Philly and Pgh.

Registration? Still pending

Entry Fee-something you would want after finishing the ride

Start-Liberty Bell

End-Point State Park

Distance-probably over 350 miles
Questions-post here

Warning!!!!!

This is an unsupported event. You get lost, get tired, break your bike, YOU need to get yourself home. No sag wagon, no aid stations, no drop bags. Think alley cat, now think much much bigger.


T-shirts and spoke cards for all finishers, maybe some home brew if I get the time to fire a batch up.

As of now we have no super enduro folks who may attempt this ride in one long push. All folks interested so far plan on sleeping out at least one night, so this may be a bit more of a friendly contest than a full on hammer fest for the super fit.
