Name: Symphony, Ice Cream and Fireworks
Speed: 11-13 mph
Start Location: Briarcrest Parking Lot (Behind Turkey Hill)
Start Time: 5:30 PM (Not the usual 6:00 PM)
Yes, you read that right…free symphony, free ice cream and fireworks will be enjoyed at the Hershey Medical Center at the finish of our special combined East Shore Tuesday and East Shore Flex rides. Read on to find out more!
We’ll move the start time up to 5:30 PM and we’ll start in the Briarcrest Mall parking lot. This is located behind the Turkey Hill that is just across the street from the Hershey Medical Center. We’ll do a 1 hour 45 minute bike ride so we can return to the parking lot by 7:15. Hopefully, all of you workers will be sneaking out of work a bit sooner so you can join us for this earlier start time. If you can only make it to the show, then join us at the show by looking for the group of sweaty people dressed in funny looking clothes on the lawn.
We’ll leave our bikes with our vehicles at Briarcrest (bring your bike locks, blankets, bug spray and a change of clothes) and walk across the street to enjoy the Independence Day festivities on the front lawn of the Hershey Medical Center. The Hershey Symphony Orchestra starts playing at 7:30 until the fireworks at dusk. If you haven’t seen the show before, the symphony sounds great and they always end with a fantastic patriotic show. And, yes, free ice cream and water are involved. There are also a number of food trucks. And, if it’s your pleasure, many spectators layout quite a spread with food and wine. It’s a fun family event.

I'll cancel by 4:30 PM via email in the event of poor riding weather. But, note that hot and humid does not qualify for poor riding weather!
