Ride Description:

Weather reports call for rain this evening but we're going to try to squeeze in an East Shore Flex ride this afternoon.  Ken Frohnert and I will be departing Boyd's Big Tree Preserve at 1pm.   Boyd's is located north of Harrisburg on Fishing Creek Valley Rd / Rt 443, approximately 2.5 miles east of 322/22.  From Fishing Creek Valley Rd, turn into the lane for Boyd's and go up to the top of the hill, where there is plenty of parking and a restroom.

Our route will be 25 to 30 miles and have approximately 1200 ft of climb.  Depending upon who shows up, we may climb up Appleby Rd.  Pace will be 12 to 13 mph and no rider will be left behind.  

We will monitor the weather and cancel by Noon or shorten the ride if necessary.

For questions I can be reached at 717-982-1706
