A 520 mile drive along the spine of the Appalachian Mountains.
My route had me go over the New River Gorge Bridge. I paddled that Class 5 river in 1993 with some whitewater buddies from Blowing Rock in a single inflatable kayak. No time to stop but will on the way home.
The hotel which is across the street from PNC Park is a mini shrine to Pittsburgh pro sports. Great photo of Terry Bradshaw lighting Art Rooney’s cigar!
A breakfast and a 10:00 o’clock appointment at the Warhol Museum and afternoon game at PNC Park of Pirates/Mets.
RAINOUT! It’s not even raining. Nothing like PGH on game day. Oh well, exploratory bike ride instead. OMG!
Big house and prison cat cove were the end of the trail. I turned around and headed back. I went a ways.
On the way back from this end of the trail the heavens opened for 5 minutes. Just enough to soak you completely. This had me pause and take a pedestrian bridge over a big interstate to Troy Hill. Let the pics do the talking!
Came back down the hill and made my way down back to town. With a last stop in the Strip.
Ride 25 very urban miles with 778 feet of elevation. I will not normally have this many pics or time for the blog but, it was just so cool. On to Buffalo tomorrow. Filet on the stone tonight maybe Gib! Big peace out Tres Dog
