Name: Almost Steelstown
Stats: 28 miles (1,450 ft.)
Speed: 12-13 mph
Start Location: East Hanover Township Community Park
At 8:30 AM we’ll be starting at the East Hanover Township parking lot along with the D+ (8:30 AM) and C+ (8:00 AM) rides.
We’ll start by generally heading south to Sand Beach, east to “almost Steelstown” and then west back to the East Hanover Community Park. We’ll tackle 2 significant hills…the first at around mile 9 and the second around mile 18 (Yes, Ken, we’ve all done these before ?). The total climb for the ride will be about 1,450 ft. which we all scoff at because we’re in our best biking shape of the season right now.
This will be a scenic ride through mostly farmlands and along the floodplain of Swatara Creek including 2 crossings of Swatara Creek on Sand Beach Road and Blacks Bridge Road. Note that this is a different ride than "Black's Bridge Square".
Restroom facilities are available at the start/stop. We’ll take a scheduled break near the half-way turnaround.
I'll cancel by 7:30 AM Saturday via email in the event of poor riding weather.
