Ride Description:

This week's Saturday Morning Social ride will depart at 9:00 a.m. from the Middle Road parking lot of Memorial Lake, located at 18 Boundary Rd, Grantville, PA 17028.  Restrooms are available at this location.

The D+ ride being led by Rick Radwanski will also be departing at 9:00 a.m. from Middle Road so riders will have a choice of rides.

I am still working on the route but you can figure on 24 to 28 miles with about 1200 ft of climb or less.  Our pace will be within the C range of 11 mph to 13 mph and no rider will be dropped.  This time of year we are just looking to get out and ride, so I will keep the hills to a minimum and we will place priority on staying together within the C pace.   If faster riders want to go ahead I will have cue sheets for them.

The weather forecast for Saturday includes a chance of rain after 1pm.  Temps will be in the low 40's but probably feel a bit cooler than that due to moisture.  In the event we need to cancel, I'll send a note out by 8:00 a.m.

For questions I can be reached via phone or text at 717-982-1706.  Hope to see you Saturday!
