11-13 mphTerrain: Ride Description:
Saturday or Sunday "ad hoc" social rides (not EVERY week) in which we carpool/caravan to a trail/route outside the immediate metropolitan Harrisburg area or have weekend camping/biking adventures. Travel to venues will range from 45 minutes to 3 hours away. These are C/D+ rides which will have a 9-13 mph average and range from 20-45 miles.
The 4th time's the charm! Weather looks PERFECT for a ride on the beautiful Northwest Lancaster County River Trail, starting in Koser Park (small lot - 107 Race St, Bainbridge, PA). Mileage is up to the party riding that day – Marietta or Columbia with a stop in Marietta at pub we vote on for lunch. Please let me know by 7:00 pm, Friday 8/25, if you plan on joining me and if you are meeting me there or carpooling.
If you wish to carpool/caravan – meet at Hampden Shopping Center (corner of Carlyle Pike & Sporting Hill Rd) at 9:00 a.m. - parking lot away from the Theatre.
NOTE: These meandering rides are just that, meandering - slow, lingering, stopping for photo ops and viewing the nature with no set ending time adventures! If you need to return by a certain time, please feel free to turn around when you need to (ya can't get lost if you stay on the trail)!Start Location: Varies - see descriptionRide Leader: (click to email)
