Ride Description:

Fly Eagles fly...On the road to victory

Let's celebrate the Super Bowl Champion Eagles with a Friday East Shore Flex ride! 

Since many roads will still have snow on their shoulders we will stick to low traffic areas.  Departure will be at 1:00 p.m. from the parking lot behind the East Hanover Township Municipal Building located at 8848 Jonestown Rd, Grantville PA 17028.

We will head east on back roads, circle the Indiantown Gap area and stop at Memorial Lake for a restroom and snack break.  Return path will be on Route 443 and Manada Bottom Rd.  Total distance is estimated at 25 miles with elevation climb of approximately 1,050 ft.  The steepest climbs on this route are a modest 4% grade.  Our pace will be around 12 mph and no rider will be left behind. 

Temps are forecast to be in the low 30s with minimal wind, but the cloud cover will make it feel slightly cooler.  Dress appropriately and I hope you can join us!
