Rails to Trails
The Western Maryland Scenic Railroad runs from Cumberland to Frostburg. The ride is wonderful, passing through a couple of tunnels and around a great horseshoe bend. For a small fee you can load your bike on the train up the mountain side. The ride back down is mostly a coast, very easy and very fun. Try it, you will enjoy it. I look forward to being back on the bike in a few months. I need to go ride this again.
The C&O trail from DC, ends at Frostberg (though there are some gaps that require riding on busy streets) making it possible to ride from DC to Pittsburgh. I have ridden a couple of segments of the ride.
