Cyclign in Pennsylvania
Myself, my wife and some friends will be travelling to Pennsylvania the first 2 weeks in August.
My wife and friends will be attending an event located at Coopers Campground which is about 45 minutes north of Pittsburgh.
Link to event.
Link to campground.
Since I do not participate much in their interests, I will be doing some cycling there - bringing both road and mountain bike.
Can anyone here give me some details on a good on-road cycling route, or a few good routes in that area? Maybe some short rides of up to 50km and a few longer ones up to 200km.
Anywhere to ride a mountain bike there? I won't have much access to a vehicle if I have to transport my MTB bike, but of course I don't mind riding to a trailhead either, but not a huge distance or anything (say less than 10km).
I have an aerial photo of the Coopers Lake campground and it shows some pretty wide shoulders on the I-79. What's the riding like on that highway? Or should I avoid it?
I'll of course be doing some searching on the internet, but any help here would be appreciated.
