Southwestern Pennsylvania is a remarkably beautiful region of low mountains, deep valleys and lush forests. Punctuated by picture-perfect farms, it is incredible motorcycling territory, with miles of two-lane blacktop winding through it all. In 2019, friends Tom McKee and Adam Rexroad planned our routes. The first day’s 125-mile ride took us south to the quaint downtown of Oakland, Maryland. Riders relaxed, wandered downtown, took in the museums and had lunch at a variety of locally owned restaurants.
That night’s banquet featured our special guest, motorcycle journalist Dain Gingerelli. Dain kept us in stitches, sharing stories from his many decades spent riding, writing and racing. The following morning found us on the road again, making a 60-mile loop through Ohiopyle State Park, then back to Seven Springs.
