I had an amazing adventure bicycling western Pennsylvania last week…. and on this edition of the pod, I tell stories all about biking the Great Allegheny Passage, the Montour Trail and the Panhandle Trail. Spoiler alert: it was hot.

The Journal: Bicycling Western Pennsylvania
A 5-day adventure that includes the full Montour trail, a hefty helping of the Panhandle Trail and a through-ride of the Great Allegheny Passage. Nearly 300 miles. It was hot.
- Segment riding the Montour to completion
- Big help from Dave at The Tandem Connection in Hendersonville… huge help with a weird rear flat
- Through riding the GAP fro 150-0
- Wildlife, except the rattlesnake
- Exploring Pittsburgh off the beaten path
- Hammock lounging every night
- Camping every night (but getting showers the last 2!)
- Sugar isn’t always you friend, until it is.
- Hydrate and block the sun
- Lighter is better
- Frame bags are dope
