Great Allegheny Passage
One of the longest and most scenic bike paths in the Northeast, the Great Allegheny Passage is a continuous 335 mile long bike path that should be on every riders bucket list. This path runs almost continuously between downtown Pittsburgh and Washington, DC in two distinct sections:

The Great Allegheny Passage (GAP) is 150 miles between Pittsburgh and Cumberland, MD. It's a rail trail, most of which is stone-dust surface. Some sections in urban areas are asphalt paved.
The Cumberland and Ohio Towpath (C&O) is 185 miles between Cumberland and DC and is a dirt and gravel bike path, more closely resembling other canal towpath trails, so it is a little bumpier (and muddier in rain) than the GAP.

This bike path can usually be done in 4 to 8 days, depending on how much you want to ride each day. Good scenery is plentiful, and you can make lots of stops along the way to experience local attractions such as Fallingwater, whitewater rafting, Civil War battlefields and even tubing. Plenty of interesting towns dot the route, including Harpers Ferry, WV.

This ride would typically be operated with vehicle support for the entire length of the ride, where luggage is transported for the riders. We can also transport bikes and luggage to Pittsburgh from the NY Metro Area so that you can fly there without the hassle of dealing with your bike. We can take care of all arrangements! And once you start riding, we are there for you all the way!
