Just rode the GAP with 2 Wheel Escapes (2WE) providing shuttle service, support and gear. The 3 night/4 day adventure started in Cumberland, MD where they picked us up and shuttled us to downtown Pittsburgh. Once in Pittsburgh they provided a short orientation and some snacks, and then led our group of 21 cyclists for about 2 miles to where the trail becomes easier to follow. We then rode another 30 miles the first day to a nice campsite in West Newton where 2WE provided more snacks, drinks, and a cooked dinner. The next morning 2WE was up bright and early getting coffee and a cooked breakfast ready for everyone. Before we headed out each day they provided us with a cheat sheet of things to look out for on the trail, and Greg (the co-owner with Rhona) even spent some time working on bikes for anyone who needed it. The second day comprised 52 miles to Confluence where they provided the same support, and the third and fourth days, to Meyersdale and Cumberland respectively, were shorter rides of about 32 miles (the last day being mostly downhill) with the same great support. Can't say enough about the hard work Greg, Rhona and the crew put in to making sure we all had a good time on the trip. Greg is very professional and knowledgeable, but he's also just a fun guy to be around and he truly wants to make sure that every cyclist, regardless of their experience or ability, enjoys their time on the trail. We had a 7yr old in our group who biked under her own steam for 50 of the 150 miles, and she can't wait to do it again next year! I highly recommend you check out 2WE if you're considering riding the GAP or the C&O Canal.

About This Deal

Itinerary

Day 1: Shuttle to Pittsburgh from Cumberland Maryland then ride approximately 31 miles to West Newton Pennsylvania

Stop At: Great Allegheny Passage, 13 Canal St, Cumberland, MD 21502-3052
Day-One is typically a 35-mile ride that begins at Point State Park in downtown Pittsburgh and goes to West Newton Pennsylvania.
This day is a customer favorite as the trail begins as a car-free passage through a busy urban area, then transitions to a tree lined canopy that passes through several old small coal "patch" towns that still retain the feel of the coal and railroad heydays.
Duration: 6 hours

Meals included:
• Lunch: Customer can choose a box lunch upon arrival at the start of the ride or eat a meal at one of several local options.
• Dinner: Dinner on the first day can be a meal cooked at our luxury campsite or one of several dining options in town nearby.
Accommodation included: Luxury "Glamping" at a quaint venue where we carry all your gear and creature comforts. Hotel and B&B options available

Day 2: Ride 51 miles from West Newton PA to Confluence PA

Stop At: Great Allegheny Passage, 13 Canal St, Cumberland, MD 21502-3052
On Day-Two riders begin with a gourmet breakfast and coffee service before heading down the trail. This day includes passing through many interesting towns, including Connellsville and Ohiopyle Pennsylvania. Riders travel at their own pace and can stop whenever they choose for food and breaks.
Riders are provided a "Que" sheet each day with points of interest and recommendations for additional activities and lunch options.
Duration: 6 hours

Meals included:
• Breakfast: Hearty breakfast and gourmet coffee service included.
• Dinner: Dinner can be homemade food at camp or one of several excellent options in Confluence Pennsylvania
Accommodation included: Camping at one of several locations in town with hot showers and flush toilets. Hotel or B&B options also available.

Day 3: Ride approximately 20 miles from Confluence PA to Rockwood PA with optional side trips

Stop At: Great Allegheny Passage, 13 Canal St, Cumberland, MD 21502-3052
Day-3 is also a customer favorite because of the ability to take a vacation within your vacation. Since the ride is only 20 miles this day, most customers choose to take a side trip of kayaking 11 miles down the Youghiogheny River or visiting the world famous Frank Lloyd Wright house, "Fallingwater".
The riding this day is also fantastic as you pass through dense forest and go through the first of many tunnels on the trail.
Duration: 2 hours

Meals included:
• Breakfast: Just like everyday we begin with gourmet coffee service and a hearty breakfast with all fresh ingredients.
• Dinner: This night most customers opt for our "famous" spaghetti dinner, homemade on the trail with all fresh ingredients.
Accommodation included: Glamping again at a wonderful commercial campground with spotless restrooms and hot showers. Hotel/B&B options available

Day 4: Ride 43 miles back to Cumberland MD with the last 23 miles DOWNHILL!!!

Stop At: Great Allegheny Passage, 13 Canal St, Cumberland, MD 21502-3052
Day-4 is possibly the best day of all as you will experience most of the dramatic railroad features of the trail. This includes 3 tunnels (one of which is over 1/2 mile long), and 2 long bridges. You will also pass through the charming town of Meyersdale Pennsylvania that has an amazing restored railroad station and museum.
But everyone's favorite part of Day-4 is cruising the last 23 miles of the trail downhill into Cumberland. This is a wonderful way to end your journey as you reach Cumberland and can celebrate with a meal and beverages at many great venues.
Duration: 5 hours
