Part of an upcoming fully-loaded tour will be riding from Erie, PA to Pittsburgh, PA.
The state of Pennsylvania recommends one route:
And Adventure Cycling has a similar but different route, which is called the Underground Railroad Pittsburgh Spur:
So now I'm in a quandary. Has anyone here ridden this stretch? Any recommendations? Which one is better? And why in the world are they different?
Perhaps the ACA targets historic Underground Railroad sites, and the state is just picking the best roads? The latter would be my preference.
Thanks for your help.
