Ride Description:

When and where are we leaving from?
8:30 a.m. sharp from the Conewago Recreation Trail location at 2385 N Market St, Elizabethtown, PA 17022.

Where do I park?
In front of the abandoned GettyMart that is next door to the trailhead parking lot.  I believe there is a portajohn at the trailhead. 

What is our route?
Approximately 27 miles, all of which will be on roads and not on the rail trail.  Expect a bathroom stop around mile 11 and a snack break in Mt Gretna. 

Are there hills?
It’s Central PA…that means yes.   While this route has only 930 ft of elevation climb, there is a 6% hill in the beginning of the ride and another 6% hill towards the end of the ride.  Nothing a C rider shouldn’t be able to handle, and we’ll wait for you at the top.

Have we done this route before?
Yep, back on April 14.

What’s the pace?
Expect 12 mph to 13 mph.  Second half of this route is always faster than the first half.   We may designate someone to lead a faster group on the way back if necessary, but I’ll be staying with the standard C group.  No rider will be dropped. 

What’s the weather forecast?
Perfect riding weather; mid 60’s to start and mid 70’s by the end. I’ll send out a cancellation by 7am if necessary.
