DAY 2

Niagara Falls - 119 km

Our hotel is in the centre of town and after a good early breakfast we start our ride through the downtown area. We move together for the first ten kilometres as we get to the outskirts of Buffalo, past the American Football stadium and the suburb of North Boston where we stop for a break at Georges Restaurant. Once out of town we are quickly in the lush countryside and we soon arrive at the towns of Springville where we rest and have some good food. From here we have our tough 260 m climb before its almost downhill all the way to our hotel in the town of Olean.

Wellsboro - 131 km

Today is our longest and toughest in the saddle as we make our way along the valleys of the Denton Hill National Park. We follow the Pine Creek River for part of the day, which flows into Pine Creek Canyon, Pennsylvania's very own Grand Canyon. The quality of the roads today are very good and we should pass quickly through the towns of Shinglehouse, Sweden and Manhattan, before eventually arriving in Wellsboro. Tonight we stay in one of the town’s historic central hotels.

As we approach the West Coast, the towns we pass through increase in size and tonight we stay in Wilkes-Barre with a population of half a million, the biggest town we have passed since leaving Buffalo.

DAY 6

Stroudsburg - 81 km

We start on our shortest day with only 81 km’s of riding although the good hard climb in to the hills to the east of Wilkes-Barre which give us great views over the route that we cycled yesterday. It’s a great day of cycling today as we make our way through spectacular scenery, into the Lackawanna Forrest, through Bear Creek Preserve, over the Pocono Mountains with its very own lake district and then dropping down into Stroudsburg. Tonight is our last night before we reach Newark and the end of our challenge.

Newark - 121 km

Our ride takes us through small, pretty farmsteads that gradually give way to the larger towns of Hackettstown, Ironia, Morristown and Vauxhall as we get closer to Newark. We end our cycle at our hotel in Newark, where we relax before our celebratory dinner tonight to mark our achievement and the end of an incredible challenge.
