Saturday Morning C

Sat. 22 Jul, 2017 8:30 am - 8:30 am
Ride Description:

 

Name:   Circle Deodate

Stats:    31 mi and 1,375 ft. climb 

Speed:  11-13 mph

Start Location:  Hummelstown Park-N-Ride

 

We’ll be starting at the Hummelstown Park-N-Ride at 8:30 AM where bathroom facilities are available in the local 7-11.  We’ll take a scheduled break around mile 15 with additional unscheduled breaks.  I anticipate that we’ll finish pretty close to 12 mph.  No one will be left behind.  The high temperature is predicted to be only 87 degrees which is way better than the 90's for the 4 days leading up to Saturday.  We'll be done riding well before 11:30 AM and, since it is daylight savings time, the sun will not reach its highest until 1:00 PM with that high of 87 coming even later in the afternoon.  

 

We’ll take mostly country roads with lots of corn and soybean fields as we basically ride in a big circle around the thriving metropolis of Deodate.  Most of these roads are in real good shape making for a smooth ride.  There will be about 1,370 ft. of climb, which we have all done before, with a good portion of that coming on 2 hills.  The first hill starts around mile 8 and the second starts around mile 22.  So, we have time to warm-up before the first hill and they are spaced out nicely….and we finish on a real nice downhill!

 

For directions, you can enter “West 2nd Street and Cedar Alley” in Google Maps and it'll get you to the Park-N-Ride.  It is located within sight of the 7-11 at the intersection of West 2nd Street and North Hanover Street just 2 blocks north of the square in downtown Hummelstown.

 

The D+ group will be starting out of the East Hanover Park.

 

I'll cancel by 7:30 AM Saturday via email in the event of poor riding weather.

We'll start Saturday morning at 8:30am from East Hanover Township Park, located behind the Township building at 8848 Jonestown Road, Grantville, PA. 17028.

We'll take a short break at Memorial Lake, then head back to East Hanover Park along some familiar rural roads. The route south of Rt22 involves some rolling hills and one slightly longer hill to climb. 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. If you have any questions or concerns, please call, 717-865-5707, or email me at This email address is being protected from spambots.
