Welcome to the home page for “D.C. to D’Burgh…Pedaling Parkinson’s Outta Tahn”, a 335-mile cycling adventure from the National Mall in Washington, D.C to Point State Park in Pittsburgh, PA to benefit the Parkinson’s Foundation Western Pennsylvania (PFWPA).
This world class journey takes the riders along the historical C&O Canal Towpath Trail following the Potomac River to Cumberland, MD where it connects to the Great Allegheny Passage to form what the National Geographic Adventurer calls “An American Classic”. Together, these trails trace the history of the United States, from its early colonial days and the quest to find a route westward for commerce and industry, to its stand for independence and growth as an industrial nation. Departing from the National Mall on Sunday, August 29, 2021, riders will average about 60 miles a day for the next 6 days arriving at Point State Park on Friday, September 3, 2021.
