    We leave Pittsburgh behind as we set out for our longest day of cycling, heading for the beautiful rural reaches of Pennsylvania, taking us through old-growth forests and following the majestic Youghiogheny river.

    Day 4:  Connellsville to Ohiopyle

    Today’s ride is just 18 miles taking us to Ohiopyle Stake Park. The short ride is intentional so as to allow most of the day for exploration of this amazing area. Options of things to do include river rafting, relaxing on the great swimming beach on the Youghiogheny River, hiking or biking the many trails in the park, or touring one of the two incredible Frank Lloyd Wright Houses - Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob, both only a couple of miles from Ohiopyle. For those wishing to tour either house, we’ll shuttle you from Ohiopyle and pick you up after your tour.

    Cycling                    40.5 miles

    Today’s ride is all about the scenery, and oh yeah, the Salisbury Viaduct which is over 100’ high and 2,300’ long making for one exciting ride! Our overnight is at the super kitschy and haunted Morguen Toole Factory, where we’ll cheer our last night of the tour with a pizza social.

    Today we hit the trail for our last 32 miles which takes us through across the Eastern Continental Divide, the Mason Dixon Line  and  through the Big Savage Tunnel before delivering us to the outskirts of Maryland, where we enjoy a downhill coast on our way to Cumberland and the end of this great ride!
