    I am considering riding a bike across PA using route 6 from Milford to Erie. Is this a good route to take? I plan on taking six or seven days to complete this trip (about fifty miles per day). I want to try in the late Fall, 2017. I will be taking this trip by car in the next couple of weeks to just check out the terrain and accommodations. I know a good portion of this road but it’s been years since I’ve been on it.

    Is there a better route that would get me across PA?

    Any state restrictions on doing this?

    My company is looking to form a team to ride in a few charity bike rides this summer. The list is pretty small for PA. Does anyone have a list of other upcoming events? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Kelly B.
