Your journey begins near Cedar Creek in the “Yough”
valley. From there you will spend the next two days along
the Youghiogheny and Casselman rivers, traversing
valleys on the beautiful iron bridges created by the
railroads of the 1800’s. The GAP — 132 miles of near-
level trail constructed on old railroad beds with a
maximum 2% grade and a smooth crushed limestone
surface — translates into mile-melting easy riding.

Your Personal SAG Wagon: What is this SAG thing of which you speak? Simply, it is a support and gear (SAG) van and trailer used for multi-day biking. It makes your biking day much easier. The SAG wagon moves your luggage, your food and sometimes even you! This means a light bike and flexible biking distances.

Riders rendezvous with the SAG wagon at preset locations. This gives you the ability to customize the length of your biking day. The guide operating the SAG wagon can refill your water bottle, tune your bike, or shuttle you over that hill.
