    Default Confluence GAP Trail Connector Bridge Fundraiser

    Out of area, but since a sizable number of folks here ride up to Pittsburgh, a fundraiser to install a permanent deck on the bridge connecting the GAP to Confluence, PA:

    This is exactly what I've been waiting for. I rode from here to Pittsburgh last year and was planning to make a donation to some of the organizations who make the trails possible. I even had a pleasant chat with the ladies at the HQ office in whatever town that was. I followed up with an email suggestion that they revisit their inconsistent bollard policies (see Hall of Fame bollard below). I never heard back, so I'll send my money here instead.

    I just went back and reviewed my Strava track, and it appears I rode across this very bridge in order to get lunch.

    If you make a nice donation they will send you a matted professional photograph. I received mine a week or so ago and ordered a mahogany frame for it. I put it in the frame yesterday, and it looks great.
