I don't believe Route S was on Route 40, at least not as I recall.  Most of the roads we were on were manageable and closer to and into Pittsburgh, the route utilized the GAP trail, so roads were a non-issue.

Well, you might of missed it, but Bike Route S leaves the GAP in West Newton and heads over the hill to cross the Monongahela River in Monongahela, PA south of Pittsburgh and then continues on past Washington, PA towards Wheeling, WV. It ends on the PA/WV border but uses Rt 40 (National Road) out that way. It offers a total bypass of Pittsburgh.

Correct. E-W, Route S only utilizes the GAP between Rockwood, PA and W. Newton.  Most definitely does not go into PGH using the GAP.
