Ride Description:

Let's meet this week at Memorial Lake, Middle Road Entrance, and ride to the lake at Camp Strauss.  We will be taking some different roads because most of the Fort Indiantown Gap Roads are now off limits to bicycles.  The distance will be about 26 miles at 11-13 mph and there will be a few hills, but nothing too difficult.  Most of the roads are rural, country roads, but because of the new restrictions at Fort Indiantown Gap, we will have a few miles on busier connecting roads.  There are restrooms available at Memorial Lake and at a McDonald's at Love's Truck Stop, or we can stop at the Speedway in Lickdale.

In the event of rain, I will send a cancellation email no later than 8:00 Saturday morning.  If the weather is questionable, check your email messages, call or text me before you leave home.  

If anyone has questions or needs better directions, send me an email, call or text at contact information below.  Hope to see you there because I think you will like this ride!

Note: This week the D Plus Ride is not starting from the same location as the C Ride.  If you are interested in that ride, check the D Plus email announcement or read about it on the website under Upcoming Rides.  Everyone is welcome to join the ride of their choice!
