June 8: West Newton PA to Conway PA

66.25 miles today

Correction on Yesterday: 86 miles

 

As Abby said, today was surreal.  We had lovely trails with poor connections as we went through the Pittsburgh area.  It’s clear there’s a commitment to making the connections, but they weren’t there for us today.

 

We had the end of the Great Allegheny Passage, a bit of backtracking until we got some route advice from a local fireman, several construction zones, a nice ride into downtown Pittsburgh, some wonderful bridges, a long ride past chemical plants on Neville Island, and finally a cheap motel here.

 

It’s good to be back where T-Mobile has a signal again, although the Blackberry trackball isn’t working which pretty much limits its use.

 

Tomorrow: leaving PA behind and into Ohio.
