Sara Petyk- Noble Invention Bike Touring




Sara Petyk is the owner and operator of Noble Invention Bike Touring, providing self-guided bicycle tours on the best rail trails in the U.S. In 2009, Sara began offering guided walking and biking tours in Pittsburgh. Some of these tours traveled outside of town on the Great Allegheny Passage, so it was a natural next step to focus exclusively on longer bike trips through a self-guided bike tour company, formerly named Bike the GAP. Today, Noble Invention Bike Touring offers self-guided bike tours on the Great Allegheny Passage, C&O Canal Towpath, Katy Trail, Erie Canal, and Virginia Capital Trail, with more to come.
