Another variation on our classic Sun Mine Rd populaire…starting and finishing at RBA Dave’s house in Glenshaw.
Aside from that trivial change, this route will be familiar to most experienced Pittsburgh randonneurs. We’ll follow the north bank of the Allegheny River via expedient-yet-trafficky main roads as far as Harmarville, then break free of the riverbank and head north through Rural Ridge and Russelton. After a brief moment on the Red Belt, we’ll enjoy the classic Sun Mine Rd climb (AKA: the “if you think you’re done, you’re probably not done” climb) on our way towards our first control at the Saxon Country Market near Saxonburg. From there, we’ll cross Route 8 and head towards our second control at the 7-11 in Mars, before heading back to Millvale via North Park and Babcock Blvd.
Start Location: Dave’s House, 2512 Oakwood Rd, Glenshaw, PA 15116
