Ride Description: These social rides are D Plus (9-11mph) and typically approximately 15-20 miles in distance.

Breaks are frequent and no one gets left behind.

The weather forecast for Saturday sounds pretty good so the ride route will be the semi-regular loop ride.  The route will contain two 8 to 9 mile loops form the starting point so if you are short of time, new to group riding or not feeling energetic, you will have the option to make it a short ride. We'll start Saturday morning at 8:30am from Memorial Lake State Park, the UPPER ROAD LOT parking area. The entrance to the Upper Road Lot is marked and along Boundary Road. Restrooms are available at the parking area. Plan on riding from the park west toward Penn National and back on some of the flattest roads you will find in the area. Total distance will be about 18 miles and speed will be 9-11mph, depending on the group. No one gets dropped and we'll take breaks as necessary.
