Yikes! Did Googlemaps actually do THAT?

Our second day out of Pittsburgh, we headed out of Harmony/Zelienople toward Stoneboro. Our first 11 miles were nice, but hilly. At about mile 11, we saw this:

Although we had chosen “bike” as our transportation method, Googlemaps instructed us to make this turn onto an interstate that is designated for motor vehicles only! We had to backtrack 4 miles, to get around the lake at Moraine state park. After our backtrack, we were “on track” for hours.  In Grove City, at the Boot Box, Jinx and Paul caught up to us and sagged our gear, so we had the option to cycle another 10 miles, or not. I definitely loved the option to cycle 10 miles unencumbered. Excellent time with friends. We are hoping to cycle with Jinx and Paul while they are here. Unfortunately, the weather shows rain for a couple of days. We may cycle tomorrow, but Wed, we are expecting Thunderstorms, and that’s a no-cycling day for me.

We did come across this farm of beautiful alpacas. Lots of them! They were beautiful.

    Isn’t technology wonderful? 🙂 I hope things start warming up for you. As always, you are finding ways to make lemonade. Keep it up and keep the reports coming!

    How much fun it must be for you to have friends join to sag and ride along. It must be fun for them too. Hooray for Jinx and Paul.

    I believe it. Remember how many dirt roads we “found” on Day 2?

Any thoughts?
