26 Feb 2013 NEW! Great Allegheny Passage (GAP) Bike Tour – Best of GAP 4 Day
Ride the GAP End to End in 2013! Wilderness Voyageurs is introducing a new 4 day Inn to Inn journey from Homestead, PA to Cumberland, Maryland. This trip will cover the Great Allegheny Passage at a relaxed pace and will allow for plenty of time to explore the trailside, small towns, and soak your feet in the Youghiogheny River. This bike tour will average about 35 miles a day, as opposed to our 6 day Pittsburgh to Washington DC tour that averages 60 miles a day.
Wilderness Voyageurs has been conducting tours on the Great Allegheny Passage since 1999, today we are the largest bike outfitter operating in the corridor. Why is this important? Because, you get more time to enjoy your vacation when you put our 14 years of experience to work for you taking care of all of the details, luggage moving, snack breaks, meals, lodging, and bike tuning. We make it easy to explore and enjoy the trail.
You will meet your guides and fellow travelers at the Wilderness Voyageurs’ base in Ohiopyle, PA. Here you will park your car and have your luggage loaded into the SAG vehicle. Munch on a bagel while the guides load your bikes and attend to any last minute bike tuning before we load up to head for Homestead, PA and the start of your vacation. You will spend 4 days, traversing from Homestead, Pennsylvania to Cumberland, Maryland, on this world famous Rail- Trail. Beginning your meander in the shadows of the Pittsburgh skyline and then quickly you will turn into the Youghiogheny Valley where tall trees and small towns are your companions. Overnights will be spent in Perryopolis, Confluence, and Meyersdale, upon arrival in Cumberland you will be transported back to Ohiopyle where you parked your car.
One of the things that has us so excited about this new tour, is our new lodging partners, the Levi Deal Mansion in Meyersdale, Pennsylvania. This gorgeous B & B is 2 blocks from the Great Allegheny Passage, and will be our refuge on night 3 of this tour. Meet our innkeepers and have a peek into their beautiful home, that they have lovingly restored to turn of the century grandeur……
