This year's Rough Diamond Fundraiser Ride will be held on Sunday August 13. This event includes the traditional, mixed surface Rough Diamond Century (100 mile) route connecting the Rough Diamond Trail network, and new this year we are offering a 30 mile trail ride along the Westmoreland Heritage and West Penn Trails. Both of these rides include rest stops stocked with snacks, energy drinks, and water.
SAG support will be provided by the generous folks at Thick Bikes Southside Pittsburgh bike shop. There will be a fee of $50 for the century ride and $35 for the trail ride. Proceeds of the event will go towards the development of the Turtle Creek Extension of the Westmoreland Heritage Trail.
