The 2023 PMTCC McDermott 3-State Tour (M3ST) is in its 14th year. Our ride starts in Southwest Pennsylvania, heads west, entering into the states of West Virginia and Ohio. This is a scenic road ride with a few long hill climbs, rolling hills and some flat roads. 


Two routes are available to cyclists, 62 mile (metric century) and a 100 mile (century).

Rest stops and snacks will be provided along with SAG support. 

All riders must make it to Sweetwater Bicycle ( final rest stop) by 2:30pm. Rest will close at that time. Riders will then be encouraged to complete without support or take the SAG vehicle back to the start.



Those wishing to spend the weekend with us can take part in a warm up ride.

Our warm up ride is July 15th at 9am. Take a tour of the City while getting ready for the main event.
