Metric Century: 62 Mile Great Allegheny Passage Ride (Route Map) - Sunday, Oct. 1, 2017

The Route
 
  • Experience the beautiful Great Allegheny Passage trail from Connellsville to Pittsburgh!

  • Riders’ gear will be loaded on to shuttles at the Heinz Field Quay.  Check-in opens at 6 a.m.  Buses will depart promptly at 6:30 a.m. and will transport riders to Yough River Park in Connellsville.  Breakfast will be provided on the bus thanks to Panera Bread!
 
  • Rest stops will be provided at Cedar Creek Park (Mile 22) and at Boston Ballfield Park (Mile 39).  Trek of Pittsburgh will provide SAG support.
 
  • Back at the Heinz Field Quay, enjoy a Finish Line Festival along with a boxed lunch provided by Panera Bread! The Finish Line Festival will run from 12 p.m. until 4 p.m.  If you arrive after 4 p.m. you will still receive lunch, but you won't be able to enjoy other activities. We recommend that riders plan to maintain a 12-15 mph pace for this ride.
 
  • The fun doesn't have to stop when you leave the Finish Line Festival!  Head 0.3 miles down the trail to The Foundry Table & Tap for 3-2-1 Ride special pricing.  10% of your bill will be donated to The Woiner Foundation!
