For this Saturday's ride, we're looking to get the casual or first time riders out. If you haven't had your bike out for awhile, this is your ride. If you've never ridden in a group or on the road, this is your ride. If you hate hills, this is your ride.
At 9am this Saturday, we'll be doing two circuits from the Lower Road Lot at Memorial Lake State Park, 18 Boundary Rd, Grantville, Pa. 17028. Restrooms are available. Our first circuit will be about 8 miles and run from Memorial Lake west on Rt443 and back on very rural roads. The terrain is as flat as it gets in south-central Pa. If you're up to it, we'll do a second circuit covering a similar route, though you can end your ride after the first 8 miles. Total distance will be about 15 miles. The speed will be group dictated, probably around 10mph, and no one will get dropped. We'll take as many breaks along the way as necessary.
So, pump up your bike tires, get your helmet dusted off, grab a water bottle, and show up for a good riding experience. Riding on these roadways in the countryside beats pedaling that stationary bike in your basement. Hope to see you out with us Saturday!
