This week's Saturday Morning Social ride will depart from the Lower Road parking area of Memorial Lake in East Hanover Twp, near Fort Indiantown Gap. There is ample free parking at this location and restrooms. The D+ ride led by Larry Riley will also be leaving from this location at the same time so you have your choice of rides.
Our route will be approximately 27 miles and will take us east around Fredricksburg and the Blue Mountain Golf Course. RidewithGPS shows the elevation climb as just under 1200 ft. There are no climbs on this route above 5% grade but you can expect rolling terrain that is typical of Central PA.
Our pace will be within the C range and probably between 12 to 13 mph. We will stop as needed to regroup and there will be a bathroom break around the halfway point. No rider will be dropped.
If you would like to preview the route, a link has been included below. We may vary from this route if conditions require.
Weather forecast for Saturday morning calls for temperatures around 60 deg F at start time, warming up to about 65 deg F. This is the "in between" time of year for biking clothing so we will stop after a few miles for clothing adjustments. Winds are expected to be 5mph or below and there is less than 5% chance of rain.
In the unlikely event of bad weather I will send cancellation out by 7:30am.
