Abandoned Pennsylvania Turnpike needs your help

<img width="160" height="103" align="left" src="http://www.baltimorespokes.org/images/articles/20051001213817635_1.jpg" alt="">This is the abandoned 8 miles of the Pennsylvania Turnpike that is being turned into a bike trail that was written about in the Washington Post a couple of weeks ago.

Everyone has ridden Rails to Trails but this is completely different.

This trail puts you in a time and place that never existed. Post Apocalyptic America. You ride on a broken, 4 lane highway with the forest crushing in on both sides. Then you get to the abandoned tunnels. Is this the past of the future? This is the only abandoned Interstate turned into bike trail anywhere.

We need your help!

We have just gotten our web site up and are looking for members and volunteers to help develop the trail. The Friends of Pike 2 Bike ask that you pass on our web address to your biking friends and that you consider joining the most unique and weird bike trail anywhere. The benefits are worth the cost.

Like most people I live a hectic life and who has the time for much exercise? Thanks to xtracycle now I do. By using my bike for daily activities I can get things done and get an hour plus work out in 15 minutes extra of my time, not a bad deal and beats taking the extra time going to the gym. In case you are still having trouble being motivated; the National Center of Disease Control says that inactivity is the #2 killer in the United States just behind smoking. ( http://www.cdc.gov/nccdphp/bb_nutrition/ ) Get out there and start living life! I can carry home a full shopping cart of groceries, car pool two kids or just get lost in the great outdoors camping for a week. Well I got go, another outing this weekend.
