Saturday Morning C

Sat. 1 Apr, 2017 9:00 am
Ride Description:

Meet this week at the East Hanover Township Community Park, 8848 Jonestown Road, Grantville, PA 17028.  The parking lot is behind the Municipal Building with the entrance on Manada Gap Road.  We will take one of our familiar Saturday morning routes on roads south of Route 22, but there will be some variation to the regular route.  Plan to ride about 27 miles at 11-12 mph. We will pass the Pine Road bald eagles' nest where they are sitting on eggs and may be fortunate enough to see an eagle.  Terrain is the typical Lebanon County countryside with one significant hill at the 10 mile mark.  We have all climbed it before and it isn't really that difficult.  We will then take a short break at Memorial Lake at the 17 mile mark before returning to the starting location. In addition to the restrooms at Memorial Lake, there is also a newly discovered port-o-potty hidden in the pine trees behind the tennis courts at our starting/ending location.  

Not quite ready for 25 plus miles?  The Saturday Morning D Plus ride is starting at the same time from the same location and will ride about 20 miles at a slightly slower pace and in a different direction.  Riders are welcome to join the ride of their choice!  Hope to see everyone Saturday morning. No April Fools jokes allowed!
