Easy Rider GAP Bike Tour

Catch the Highlights of the Great Allegheny Passage on 3 days of easy downhill riding

Introducing the Great Allegheny Passage

This is an unbeatable introduction to the charm and history of the Great Allegheny Passage as well as bike touring vacations. You’ll have plenty of time to explore and enjoy the small towns and amazing cultural and historical sites, including Fallingwater, Salisbury Viaduct and the Historic District of Frostburg.  This tour has been designed for the novice cyclist to enjoy, while intermediate cyclists will have the opportunity to ride additional miles or have extra discovery and relaxing time.

 

Great Allegheny Passage Rail Trail

Your journey begins in Ohiopyle as we head “downhill” on the GAP ( Great Allegheny Passage) towards Cedar Creek in the “Yough” Valley. The near -level trail constructed on old railroad bed with a maximum 2% grade and a smooth crushed limestone surface- translates into mile melting easy riding. From there, you will spend the next day along the Casselman River and Will’s Creek crossing beautiful iron bridges created by the railroads as we descend from the Allegheny Front to Cumberland, Maryland- the Queen City.

The third day you will have the sheer joy of riding downhill all day, beginning with the Casselman River as your companion and ulitmatley finishing your day cruising through the Youghiogheny Gorge back to your car.

 

Custom bike tour departures are available for groups of 6 or more.
