    western PA climbing route....

    Several years ago, someone on this forum posted a nice route in south west/central PA that crossed two parallel mountain ranges. The route was a 40mile loop with approx 5,500 feet of climbing...nice long steep grades.

    Can anyone point me to the website that had the route description?

    I did the ride a couple of years back and would like to do it again.

    thanks in advance.

    11,000 feet of climbing....rt 160?

    Nobody has info on this loop? I thought it was along rt 160 for a spell. It crossed the two parallel ranges two times...for a nice it of climbing.

    There was a website that I used to pull the route from, but I can't remember any landmarks from the route to do a search on the web.

    The guy recommended doing the loop twice, once in each direction to get 80 miles and 11,000 feet of climbing.

    any help appreciated.

    Route out around Altoona or the State College area. Check the web for bike clubs in those areas.

    www.centrebike.org has some routes.... nothing with 5,500 feet but there is one that goes up to black moshannon with over 4,000 feet... it's a sweet ride (http://www.centrebike.org/rides/blackmo.html)
