The 2015 PMTCC 3 State Tour is a bicycle ride starting in Southwest Pennsylvania and heads west entering into the states of West Virginia and Ohio. This is a scenic road ride with a few long hill climbs, rolling hills and some flat roads.

Two 3 State Tour options are available, an 85-mile route beginning in Pittsburgh, PA and a metric century (62-miles) route beginning in Neville Township, PA.

The 3 State Tour follows PA state routes 51 S and 151 S before heading west to RT 30 leaving Pennsylvania and riding to Chester, West Virginia to see the world’s largest teapot. After leaving the “teapot” cyclists continue riding along RT. 30 on the Lincoln Highway Bridge to cross the Ohio River into Ohio riding along SR 39 riding towards Midland, PA and then using RT 68 East to enter Pennsylvania.

In Pennsylvania, cyclists will pass through the towns of Beaver, Bridgewater, Rochester, Monaca, Aliquippa, Ambridge and Sewickley before crossing back over the Ohio River into Coraopolis picking up SR 51 North to return to Neville Township. The 85-mile route riders will continue on to Pittsburgh completing the tour.

This is a supported ride which includes SAG, a lunch voucher, route cue sheets, and painted road arrows showing the turns.
