More than 1,000 bicyclists rode single-file along the last mile of a Pittsburgh-to-Washington trail to mark the full trail’s opening.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that the cyclists celebrated Saturday in Pittsburgh, including a group that had ridden from Washington starting Friday.

The trail passes through part of Somerset County.
