Saturday Ride

Brush Creek Cemetery, Aborted

So, if you choose to do this route, do not follow my cue sheet, as it is completely and totally wrong. The map is correct, but apparently I read “Ravine” as “River,” and River Street does not, despite my best efforts to find it, exist in Braddock. So I rode the length of Brinton, down below SR 30, where it dead ends. This meant climbing back up Brinton. As penance, I rode through Swissvale, climbed Commercial, then went through Schenley Park and suffered through the headwinds on the Jail Trail. My punishment was complete by climbing Stanton to get home.

Next time, I shall carry a map.
