About This Activity

The 2016 PMTCC McDermott 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 McDermott 3-State Tour options are available, an 80 and 100 mile routes beginning in the Northside of Pittsburgh, PA and a metric century (62-miles) route beginning in Neville Township, PA.

The McDermott 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 Midland, Industry, Beaver, Bridgewater, Rochester, Monaca, Aliquippa, Ambridge and Sewickley before crossing back over the Ohio River to Coraopolis picking up SR 51 North to return to Neville Township.  The 80 and 100 mile route riders will continue on to Pittsburgh completing the tour.
