About Pennsylvania’s Bike Route Y
PA ROUTE 6 IS PA BIKE ROUTE Y AND US BIKE ROUTE 36
In 2008, PA Bike Route Y was designated following along US Route 6 for the most part as it travels across the northern tier of PA.
At the May 2018 meeting of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), USBR 36 in Pennsylvania was named, connecting cyclists across the state from Ohio to New York, following US Route 6 in Pennsylvania.
GPS mapping for USBR 36 is now available on the Ride with GPS website – a website used by traveling bicyclists to download GPS maps and cue sheets to their portable devices. The map follows PA Route 6 with the exception of detouring off Rt. 6 and using Rt 107 from Factoryville to Mayfield. Check it out here: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/27578108
PA Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is committed to developing a Master Plan for Bike Route Y/ USBR 36 including suggested improvements and wayfinding. In 2017, a design guide for the first 160 miles was released.
