Ride Description:

We're looking to get the casual or first time riders out this Saturday.  If you haven't had your bike out for a while, this is your ride. If you've never ridden in a group or on the road, and want to try it, this is your ride. If you hate hills, this is your ride. We'll begin at 9am and do two circuits starting at the Middle Road Lot at Memorial Lake State Park. The park has heated restrooms. Our first circuit will be about 7 miles and run from Memorial Lake to Levitz Park and back on very rural roads and pathways. The terrain is as flat as it gets in south-central Pa. You can quit after this first circuit if you tire, or have other obligations.  The second circuit will cover the same route, however we can add a couple of extra miles at the end if the group so desires. Total distance will be about 15-? miles in distance. The speed will be group dictated,  so no one will get dropped.  We'll take as many breaks as necessary.  So, pump up your bike tires, get your helmet dusted off, grab some cool weather clothing, fill a water bottle, and show up for a good riding experience. Temps are predicted to be in the 30's at ride start time with some sunshine. Riding on these roadways in the countryside beats pedaling that bike in your basement. If you have any questions or concerns, please call me at 717-865-5707, or email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Hope to see you Saturday morning. In the event of inclement weather causing a ride cancellation, notification will be sent out by 8:00am.
