Saturday Morning D+

Sat. 17 Feb, 2018 9:30 am - 9:30 am
Ride Description:

The Middle Road Lot at Memorial Lake State Park will be our 9:30am starting point for this Saturday's D Plus ride. Restrooms are available at the park. Please park in the lot area farthest from the lake. Plan on riding from the park east through the Fort Indiantown Gap area to Swatara State Park. After a short break, we'll return to our starting location. The route back through Fort Indiantown Gap has a few minor hills, all of which we've climbed before. Total distance will be approximately 18 miles, or a couple more if we decide to ride around the lake at ride end. Speed will be 9-11mph, depending on the group. No one gets dropped and we'll take breaks as necessary. If you desire a longer distance or faster pace, the Saturday Morning C Ride will also depart from the same place/time. If you have any questions or concerns, please call, 717-865-5707, or email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Hope to see you Saturday morning. In the event of inclement weather causing a ride cancellation, notification will be sent out by 8:00am

Saturday Morning Social

Sat. 17 Feb, 2018 9:30 am - 9:30 am
Ride Description:

Join us this week at Memorial Lake State Park, Middle Road Entrance, at 9:30 am, and plan to ride about 25 miles at 12-13 mph over the typical rolling terrain of beautiful Lebanon County.  There is a heated restroom available at the start location.  

This will be the ride to the Ono Water Works area that was scheduled once in December and once in January, but cancelled both times due to weather and road conditions. Perhaps the third time will be the charm.  It is a 25 mile loop to the Ono area and back.  We have done this ride a few times in the past and everyone seems to enjoy it.  It is on mostly country roads thru farmlands and wooded areas with a few nice, scenic views.  We usually see some wildlife, as well as many farm animals.  There is only one fairly steep hill on Black's Bridge Road, but we have climbed it many times in the past and no one has ever really had any difficulty with it. 

If the weather isn't suitable for cycling, I will send a cancellation email to the Saturday Morning Social email distribution list no later than 8:00 Saturday morning.  If the weather is questionable, check your emails or call/text/email me before you leave home.  

I think you will enjoy this ride and hope you can make it.  

If you are interested in a little shorter/little slower ride, the D Plus group is leaving at the same time from the same location.  Check that email distribution list or the club website's upcoming rides section for details.  If desired, riders can come together, join different rides, and meet up afterwards. No worries...both groups treat everyone like family!
