    I have 6 on Road loops mapped out in Basecamp that could be ridden while at this event. They are all about 100 miles long and begin and end at the Somerset County Courthouse.
    PM if you'd like the files.

    Probably 4 years ago, maybe 5. We were staying at Nemacola Lodge (great place, but $$$$). We were actually on a bicycle tour. IIRC, we went to Falling Waters that trip, and also pedaled the canal path. We rode down into WVa and back.

    I was there last yr(2017), great rally. I went to Fallingwater and did the long tour. You need to get your ticket at least a month before the rally. They will not let you on the estate without a ticket.
