2013 Greenway Sojourn - June 23-27, 2013
This is Linda Sue's journal of the 5-day 150-mile bike ride she took with her husband, Richard, on the Great Allegheny Passage (GAP)
from Pittsburgh, PA to Cumberland, MD.

Organized by
Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, "a non-profit organization based in Washington, D.C., whose mission it is to create a nationwide network of trails from former rail lines and connecting corridors to build healthier places for healthier people;"

and administered by
Wilderness Voyageurs, a company known for highly trained and skilled guides, a solid focus on safety, exceptional guest services, quality products and fun adventures since 1964.

What is the Greenway Sojourn?
(from the Wilderness Voyageurs website)
"The Greenway Sojourn is a truly unique experience. Part bicycle ride, part trail-building program, the Sojourn celebrates newly opened trails and promotes the completion of others to create regional trail systems. Through this multi-day bicycle ride on mostly off-road, multi-use trails, Rails-to-Trails Conservancy brings together trail enthusiasts from more than 30 states to enjoy the bounty of local trails, the comfort of local communities and the potential of local trail systems."
