Ride Description:

Ride Designation:  Newville to Shippensburg rail Trail

 

Starting Time:   9:30 am. Be there 10-15 minutes early so that the ride can start on time.

 

Starting Point:  Newville Trailhead located at 98 Rich St, Newville, PA 17241

 

Length/Duration/Terrain/Speed:   18-20 miles which should take about 2.5-3.0 hours including stops.  An 8-11 mph pace while riding.  No rider left behind.  There will be a potty stop and a snack break when we hit the Shippensburg end of the trail.

 

Weather Forecast:  Is calling for a high in the mid-60s with partly sunny skies and light winds with little to no chance of rain.  So bring water and a snack that we'll eat at Shippensburg.  In the unlikely event of rain, I will send out an email cancelling the ride by 8:00.

 

Additional Information:  If you plan to participate, send me an email.  In the event, no one responds, Claire and I reserve the right to change the starting location, time or to cancel the ride.

Hope see you on Friday.
