Wednesday, July 13, 2011 – Pittsburgh, PA. This morning I was up early and broke camp. I was on the road by 7:00 a.m. The sky was overcast, but dry. Shortly after breakfast it started to rain, so I stopped and donned my rain gear. It rained on and off for a couple of hours.
From our old house I went around the bend to our old church and chatted with a few friends who were working on the Yard Sale. Then I went to a motel in Robinson Township to join a small contingent of the Shark Week Rally. Our ride leader from here to Gettysburg, is Chris Hutter. He has put together a tour of the Lincoln Highway.
We stopped near Heinz Field to see the bridge piling which originally supported the Mansfield Bridge, which carried the Lincoln Highway over the Allegheny River. The piling has been converted to a memorial to Mr. Rogers.
Downtown Pittsburgh from the bridge pier.
Next Chris took us to Primanti Brothers in the the Strip District.
Our last stop of the evening was the Duquesne Incline.
Tomorrow we follow a later alignment of the Lincoln Highway through Pittsburgh and east on Route 30 to Gettysburg.
