Our wedding anniversary was this past Sunday, on September 26th. We decided to take an anniversary trip to Confluence PA, where we spent 3 nights at an Airbnb. We brought our bicycles with us.
Around 10:00 am on Monday, September 27th, we left on a bicycle ride. Entry to the Great Allegheny Passage was a couple blocks from our Airbnb. We rode from Confluence to Ohiopyle.
This is a video that Bob took with our GoPro7 camera during our bicycle ride.
I took several still images, while bicycling the trail.
I am very pleased with myself that I was able to complete the Great American Passage from Confluence to Ohiopyle. I have ridden very little this year. I may have been able to make the return trip, but I didn’t want to push it. My knee hurt, and the pain would undoubtedly worsen. Bob rode back to Confluence to get the car.
After Bob left I rode my bicycle downhill, just a short way back from where we had our picnic, to Ohiopyle State Park. I walked a short way along the Youghiogheny River, admiring the rapids and waterfalls.
I found a shady bench near the Visitor Center. I could hear the roar of Ohiopyle Falls behind me. It was a pleasant place to await Bob’s return.
Bob returned to Ohiopyle shortly before 3:00 pm. He said it took him 45 minutes to make the return trip on the Great Allegheny Passage. His average speed was about 13 MPH. Bob took a shower at the Airbnb, before driving back to Ohiopyle.
