Ride Description:

Name:   Tour 'De Farms

Stats:     29 miles (1,070 ft.)

Speed:  11-13 mph

Start Location:  Palmyra Borough Building

 

 

At 9:00 AM we’ll be starting at the Palmyra Borough Building located in Palmyra just north of the square at 325 South Railroad Street. 

 

This is one of our favorite rides along the scenic farmlands of Lebanon County.  With all of the recent rains and the time of year, everything should be lush and green with lots of flowers popping.

 

We’ll take our scheduled break around mile 16 at the Colebrook trailhead for the Conewago Trail where restroom facilities are available.  We will not be riding on the trail.  This ride only has 1,070 ft. of climb which is relatively low for 29 miles in the local area.  Most of the climb will come on 2 hills…1 at Bachmanville and 1 at South Mt. Pleasant Road.  Both climbs will be rewarded with a nice downhill, especially South Mt. Pleasant Road.

 

The current weather forecast calls for a chance of showers and thunderstorms.  I’ll cancel by 8:00 AM on Saturday in the event of poor riding weather.

 

The D+ group will be starting at a different location.
