Saturday Morning D+

Sat. 14 Jul, 2018 8:30 am - 8:30 am
Ride Description:

I will be filling in this week for your regular leader (Rick) who will be off another week, or so.  Let's meet at Memorial Lake, Lower Road Entrance, at 8:30 am, and plan to ride about twenty miles out to the Swatara State Park area and back.  Terrain is the typical rolling hills of beautiful Lebanon County.  Distance will be about 20 miles and the average speed will be 10 to 11 mph dependent upon the group.  This route is mostly rural with minimal traffic.  If anyone is interested, we will check out the Marquette Lake Bald Eagles Nest, but we won't be climbing the hill on the backside of the lake unless everyone wants to do it.  

The Saturday Morning Social C Ride is leaving from the same place at the same time, so couples can come together, ride different speeds and distances, and meet up later.  No worries, everyone is treated like family.  Mr. Wonderful is leading the C Ride!

I hope you can make it because I think you will like this ride!

The plan is to ride approximately 40 miles along a portion of the Cancer Research Century route east of Fort Indiantown Gap.  We will meet at 8:30 a.m. at Memorial Lake Lower Road, to coordinate with the C and D+ rides.  The pace will be in the 14 - 15 mph range.  Ride with GPS shows the elevation at approx. 2,000 feet, which is not excessive for this distance.  There will be a planned stop near Frystown, close to the half-way point.
