Bill's Bar in Little Orleans was the most wonderful place we stopped for the whole ride - it was DRY AND WARM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can you tell Dave rode in shorts?

Sir Simon the muddy -

Nice mud pack on his back, too!

Dave's improvised tire and Mc Donald's coffee cup fender helped!

The motel in Hancock had a hose at the ready!

Rocky, are you sure you want your panniers back?

Test ride to Clairton - profile

The ride went from the Coffee Tree down Cedar Blvd to Glikeson (the first low point in the profile).  The highest point is right by Village Square Mall.  The small spike (at about mile 9) is the climb just past South Park on Brownsville Rd.  The next (at about mile 10) is on Piney Fork road where we had to leave the Montour trail for the road.
