Life has been crazy lately for me and I finally am getting around to scheduling a Saturday Trail ride.  Although I have plans for Saturday Trail rides on Aug 19, Sep 30  and Oct 7, I am going to schedule these a week out instead ahead of time because of my life challenges.

Join me for a ride on the beautiful Northwest Lancaster County River Trail, starting in Koser Park (small lot - 107 Race St, Bainbridge, PA).  Mileage is up to the party riding that day – Marietta or Columbia with a stop in Marietta at pub we vote on for lunch.  Please let me know by 7:00 pm, Friday 8/11, if you plan on joining me and if you are meeting me there or carpooling.

If foul weather is apparent, ride will be canceled in an email by 8:00 am on day of the ride.  My email is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and my phone number is 717-329-3231.

If you wish to carpool/caravan  – meet at Hampden Shopping Center (corner of Carlyle Pike & Sporting Hill Rd) at 9:00 a.m. - parking lot away from the Theatre.

NOTE:  These meandering rides are just that, meandering - slow, lingering, stopping for photo ops and viewing the nature with no set ending time adventures!  If you need to return by a certain time, please feel free to turn around when you need to (ya can't get lost if you stay on the trail)!
