Ride Description:

Spring riding weather may finally be here Saturday! Diane Riley has volunteered to co-lead the Saturday Morning D+ ride with me on the Harrisburg Greenbelt. We welcome all to come out on what should be a beautiful spring day. This would be a wonderful ride to invite someone new to join us ! 

We will start the ride at 9:00 am at the Benjamin Olewine Nature Center at Wildwood Park, north of Harrisburg. Street address is 100 Wildwood Way, Harrisburg, PA 17110.  If you have not been to this location, best access is via the Cameron Street exit off I-81.  Turn right (west) on Wildwood Park Drive and go past the entrance to HACC, at which point the road curves to the right and becomes Industrial Rd.  Wildwood Way is just under the I-81 bridge overpass.  Turn right into Wildwood Way and park in the lot along the right side.

Plan on touring the Harrisburg Greenbelt, on paved, gravel, and trail roadways. The route includes a few hills, none of which are extreme. A hybrid bike would probably be best suited for this route, however road bikes shouldn't have any problems. Total distance will be approximately 20-22 miles. Speed will be 9-10mph, depending on the group. No one gets dropped and we'll take breaks as necessary along the route. Restrooms are available at several locations. If you have any questions or concerns, please call, 717-865-5707, or email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. You can also contact Diane Riley at 717-576-0003 or email her 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.
