Ride Description:

This Saturday's C ride will depart from Middle Road lot at Memorial Lake State Park.  We will keep the 8:30 a.m. start time for one more week since the clocks don't change until Sunday and the D+ group is also leaving at 8:30.  That will allow riders to choose between rides to better fit their speed.

We will head east through Ono and Jonestown and then turn north towards Blue Mountain Golf Course.  Expect a break with restrooms around mile 13.  On the way back we will go through Bordnersville and some of the roads near Swatara State Park. 

Total distance will be right around 30 miles with elevation climb around 1200 ft.  There are no extremely severe climbs on this ride; just rolling hills that any C rider should be able to handle.  We'll keep a pace around 13 mph and no rider will be dropped.

Weather forecast for this weekend calls for chance of rain Friday but sunny on Saturday.  If we need to cancel I'll send out notification by 7:30 a.m.  If there are questions I can be reached at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Hope to see you Saturday.
