Author Mark Wedel

Muleskinner Blues chronicles bicycle journey along Great Allegheny Passage.

Local journalist Mark Wedel spent last May pedaling his cheap cruiser-type bicycle from Pittsburgh, PA to Washington D.C. on the trails of the Great Allegheny Passage and Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Towpath. His new book, "Mule Skinner Blues," hilariously chronicles that trip with dips into history, politics, and much more along the way. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the event.
