Looks like the Allegheny river trail. Maybe near Oil City?

Some photos taken from a couple days ago along the Casselman river on the Greater Allegheny passage. Was a gorgeous day for a ride.

We're a bit behind some of you on autumn colour here in London, but Hyde park cycle path is now brighter than it was last week.

Another good place to get a beer and something to eat is in Franklin at the Ales to trails brewery.
Just did the Sandy Creek trail - followed by a stop @ Trails to Ales brewery !

That looks like fun.


The clouds in the last pic closed in before I could get home. Fun day.

Yup. For two days running we had the worst air quality in the world, beating out China, India and Pakistan. We’re number 1!

Just love the photography on this thread. some very talented people who are fortunate to ride in some gorgeous areas.

Rainy ride on my fist real racing bike, an 87 Trofeo de Mundo. It now is my rainy day fendered bike. The seat post bolt or something broke and need to look into a repair tomorrow.

This was taken during a family/reconnaissance trip when we moved my daughter to Tucson so haven't had a chance to hit the cycling scene yet. After seeing all the cycling opportunities in Tucson we'll be spending a good bit of time there this winter escaping the Mid-west depression inducing cloudy, grey, slushy never ending misery we love so much!

Good luck on the climb, worth every pedal stroke.

Even though the prediction was for the Autumn colors to not be very good. I think "they" were wrong.
