Greeting from Pennsylvania!
KEEN Ambassador Alison Gannett along with KEEN employees Chris and Brad are riding their bikes from Pittsburgh to Washington, DC. This 350-mile trip will take them through a series of dedicated bike/walk trails – The Great Allegheny Passage and C&O Canal.
Over the next 5 days they will post updates on the people they meet and the KEEN retailer the visit. Here are a few pictures from the first day from Pittsburgh to Confluence, PA. 85 miles down and 250 more miles to go….
Allison props her bike up against the information kiosk for West Newton, PA. These kiosks are found all along the GAP.
Along the GAP it’s normal to see a bike shop on the trail like the West Newton Bicycle Shop. You can get your bike repairs, grab a bite to eat, and relax on the banks of the Youghiogheny River.
