Month Flat Week Day

East Shore Flex

Tue. 11 Dec, 2018 12:00 pm - 12:00 pm
Ride Description:

Looks like good riding weather Tuesday so we will reprise one of our favorite rides in the Newport area for an East Shore Flex ride.  Departure will be at Noon from the Weis Markets in Newport, street address 316 Walnut St, Newport PA 17074.  We will park on the right side of the lot, next to the post office lot.  There is a rest room available inside of Weis Markets  

Our ride will be at a C pace around 12 to 13 mph.  We will make a few stops and stay together as a group with no rider being dropped.  Distance will be just under 30 miles and elevation is about 1300 ft. 

This is one of my favorite routes in Central PA with great scenery, manageable hills, and little traffic.  We did this route on Oct 26 and the bridge we walked over then is now finished.  

Hope you can join us Tuesday.  Please note the Noon departure time, which will give us adequate daylight.  For questions I can be reached at 717-982-1706.
