Abandoned Turnpike Adventure Bike Ride

October 15 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Abandoned Turnpike Adventure Bike Ride

Discover the captivating allure of the Abandoned Turnpike on this thrilling bike ride. Once an integral part of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, this 13-mile stretch of highway was bypassed in 1968 to enhance traffic flow amidst increasing usage. The Abandoned Turnpike invites you to embark on an unforgettable 17-mile round-trip adventure along its weathered asphalt surface.

Prepare to conquer gentle inclines and descents as you traverse the 8.5 miles of accessible roadway, covering a total of 17 miles. Immerse yourself in the history and atmosphere of this remarkable site, passing through two tunnels along the way. Brace yourself for the awe-inspiring experience of riding through a tunnel that spans an impressive length of nearly 6800 feet.

This bike ride accommodates mountain, comfort, and hybrid bicycles, making it accessible to a variety of riders. Please note that road bikes with narrow tires are not recommended for this excursion. Safety is paramount, so don’t forget to wear a helmet, as it is mandatory for all participants of Venture Outdoors biking outings. Additionally, ensure you bring a light source to illuminate your path while traversing the tunnels.

Join us as we explore the Abandoned Turnpike, uncovering its rich history and marveling at its scenic vistas. Get ready for an incredible day of outdoor exploration and cycling excitement!
