Ride Description:

Hello EZ Riders,

Don't dismiss this coming Sunday for a 16-18 mile ride at a pace of 9-11 miles per hour pace. 

We will be riding in the area of Memorial Lake - Levitz Park - Manada Gap area.

This ride is for beginners who want to learn the basics of riding in a group, those who want a slower pace, sociable, non-challenging terrain.

We brake for breaks! It's a NOLB ride, no one left behind.

It's a friendly group.

See you at Levitz Township Park. Google the location. It's just off Rt. 443, near Memorial Lake State Park, take Park Drive at the Salvage Yard. Big sign on Park Drive indicating turn-off for park. Take hardtop road thru park until you arrive at the GRAVEL parking lot approximately .6 mile into park.  I will already be there.
