Biking Through Pennsylvania to D.C.

An article in this past Sunday's Plain Dealer highlights the recently-completed Great Allegheny Passage, part of the mostly off-road bicycle route that connects Pittsburgh, PA to Washington, DC. Parts of the route have existed for many years as local rail-trails and the C&O Canal Towpath Trail in Maryland, but all of the pieces were finally connected just last year.

The article tells the tale of two NE Ohio couples who made the 8-day bike journey from the town of Boston (just outside Pittsburgh) to the monuments right in DC. They stayed in motels and B&B's along the way, but they provide information for how you can make the trip any way you want, from "roughing it to fluffing it."
