Saturday Morning D+

Sat. 5 May, 2018 9:00 am
Ride Description:

For Cinco de Mayo, we'll start this Saturday Morning's D Plus Ride at 9:00am from the Lower Road Lot at Memorial Lake State Park, 18 Boundary Road, Grantville, PA. 17028. Restrooms are available at the park. Plan on riding from the park south, then southeast through the Ono and Union Waterworks areas on rural roads before heading back to our starting point at Memorial Lake. For those of you that haven't been out for a while, this route has a few hills to traverse, some of which are slightly long gradual inclines and some steeper short climbs. Total distance will be approximately 18 miles. Speed will ideally be around the 10mph mark, depending on the group. No one gets dropped and we'll take breaks as necessary. If you have any questions or concerns, please call, 717-865-5707, or email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Saturday Morning Social

Sat. 5 May, 2018 9:00 am
Ride Description:

The Saturday Morning Social will meet this week at the Palmyra Boro Municipal Center, 325 South Railroad St., Palmyra, PA 17078.  This is a Lebanon Valley Bicycle Club ride and one of our east shore favorites.  Plan to ride about 28 miles of rolling terrain at 11-12 mph as we weave in and out of the scenic farmlands of Dauphin and Lebanon Counties.  There is one significant hill at the half way point, but it isn’t too bad and we will regroup at the top before continuing. The second half of the ride is mostly flat. Ride with GPS indicates a total elevation gain of 1300 feet for this route.

There is a port-o-potty at the half way point in Colebrook. If necessary, we can refill our water bottles about halfway  where there is a coin operated spring with water costing .25 per gallon. I’m confident you will like this ride if you can tolerate a relatively slow 11-12 average mph pace.  

In the event of rain, I will send an email cancellation notice no later than 8:00 o’clock Saturday morning. If the weather is questionable, check your emails, call or text me before you leave home. Hope to see you there!
