Once the riders reach this intersection they will turn right onto Naves Crossroads, turn right again onto Christie Road, make a left turn onto Ali Ghan Road and continuing on Route 144 entering onto Interstate 68 East to Rocky Gap. The ride will stop in the parking lot of Rocky Gap for a brief resting period.


Traffic will be stopped temporarily on the main route and all intersecting routes to prevent other traffic from impeding with the riders.  These stoppages will occur between 8:00 – 9:30 a.m. in preparation of the riders’ arrival into Allegany County and Cumberland.  Citizens who live and work in Cumberland should expect delays in traveling throughout parts of the city during the event.
