On Tuesday Dec 5th I will lead an East Shore Flex ride, departing at 9:00 a.m. from the Boyd Big Tree Preserve parking lot. There is no street address for this location but it is directly off Fishing Creek Valley Rd, about 3 miles east of Fort Hunter. There is a rest room at this location.
Our route will take us east on Fishing Creek Valley Rd (Rte 443), south through the Manada Bottom area, and then looping around Penn National, with a return west on Fishing Creek Valley Rd. There will be a break stop along the way with a rest room.
Current weather forecast calls for temperatures in the high 40's with little sunshine. Please bear in mind that we will be on the north side of the mountain where it tends to feel a few degrees cooler, so dress appropriately. Rain is forecast for around 1pm but we should be back well before then.
Pace will be 12 to 13 mph, with elevation climb estimated at 1100 ft. Distance will be around 30 miles although we will flexibility to cut that shorter if weather conditions change.
