RIDE Maps & Cue Sheets
Updated: 4 Apr 2011
I'm no longer updating this section. I now use MapMyRide to plan routes and you can find my routes and many others there. Click on RIDES->SEARCH RIDES and enter the city. You can limit the search by distance and activity type, and after you get the list you can sort by distance or route name and compare routes. My rides are listed under "CentreCoCyclist."

MORE RIDES These are web-base ride maps that I'm experimenting with -- no Acrobat required). So far, Bikely is the easiest to use, but they each have their own idiosyncracies. Be sure to check out the cue sheets and elevation profiles by clicking on the "Show" menu.

R.B. Winter State Park/Mifflinburg Starting at Mt. Nittany Middle School. The ultimate Penn's Valley tour.

Centre Century Figure 8 loop around State College.
Between markers 7 and 8, use Colyer Lake Rd rather than 322. The map software doesn't show Colyer Lake as a through road and used US 322. After turning left onto 322, go about 100 yds and turn right onto Colyer Lake Rd.

Campus2Campus Century University Park to Altoona.

This ride uses back roads with steep rollers between Tyrone and Altoona. Optionally, without increasing or reducing the total distance, you can follow old US 220 between Tyrone and Altoona. It's three lanes with wide shoulders in good condition, and is a straight and relatively flat shot to Altoona. Much more traffic than the side roads, but there is plenty of space on the shoulders to be safe.
Between markers 15 and 16, at DelGrosso park in Tipton, instead of turning right onto Clearfield Ave, stay on Old US 220 to Altoona. In Altoona, turn right onto RT 764 for about 1/4 mile.
Turn right on Greenwood Rd to Sixth Avenue
Turn right onto Sixth Ave and an immediate left onto the 8th Street bridge into Juniata.
Turn left on 5th Avenue.
Turn right on Broadway
Turn right on E. Wopsononock Ave.
Turn left on Wehnwood Rd
Rejoin ride at marker 20.
Also, there is a 2 mile climb at mile 56. The first 1/2 mile is pretty steep, but then eases off and at the top you are rewarded with a 15 mile downhill through beautiful Sinking Valley all the way to Spruce Creek.
