East Shore Flex

Tue. 3 Jul, 2018 5:30 pm
Ride Description:

Name:   Symphony, Ice Cream and Fireworks

Stats:    TBD

Speed:  11-13 mph

Start Location:  Briarcrest Parking Lot (Behind Turkey Hill)

Start Time:  5:30 PM (Not the usual 6:00 PM)

 

Yes, you read that right…free symphony, free ice cream and fireworks will be enjoyed at the Hershey Medical Center at the finish of our special combined East Shore Tuesday and East Shore Flex rides.   Read on to find out more!

 

We’ll move the start time up to 5:30 PM and we’ll start in the Briarcrest Mall parking lot.  This is located behind the Turkey Hill that is just across the street from the Hershey Medical Center.  We’ll do a 1 hour 45 minute bike ride so we can return to the parking lot by 7:15.  Hopefully, all of you workers will be sneaking out of work a bit sooner so you can join us for this earlier start time.  If you can only make it to the show, then join us at the show by looking for the group of sweaty people dressed in funny looking clothes on the lawn.

 

We’ll leave our bikes with our vehicles at Briarcrest (bring your bike locks, blankets, bug spray and a change of clothes) and walk across the street to enjoy the Independence Day festivities on the front lawn of the Hershey Medical Center.  The Hershey Symphony Orchestra starts playing at 7:30 until the fireworks at dusk.  If you haven’t seen the show before, the symphony sounds great and they always end with a fantastic patriotic show.  And, yes, free ice cream and water are involved.  There are also a number of food trucks.  And, if it’s your pleasure, many spectators layout quite a spread with food and wine.  It’s a fun family event.  You can see more details at https://hersheysymphony.org/2017-salute-to-america-concert-july-3/.

 

I'll cancel by 4:30 PM via email in the event of poor riding weather.  But, note that hot and humid does not qualify for poor riding weather!

Saturday Morning Social

Sat. 7 Jul, 2018 8:30 am
Ride Description:

When and where are we leaving from?
8:30 a.m. sharp from the Conewago Recreation Trail location at 2385 N Market St, Elizabethtown, PA 17022.

Where do I park?
In front of the abandoned GettyMart that is next door to the trailhead parking lot.  I believe there is a portajohn at the trailhead. 

What is our route?
Approximately 27 miles, all of which will be on roads and not on the rail trail.  Expect a bathroom stop around mile 11 and a snack break in Mt Gretna. 

Are there hills?
It’s Central PA…that means yes.   While this route has only 930 ft of elevation climb, there is a 6% hill in the beginning of the ride and another 6% hill towards the end of the ride.  Nothing a C rider shouldn’t be able to handle, and we’ll wait for you at the top.

Have we done this route before?
Yep, back on April 14.

What’s the pace?
Expect 12 mph to 13 mph.  Second half of this route is always faster than the first half.   We may designate someone to lead a faster group on the way back if necessary, but I’ll be staying with the standard C group.  No rider will be dropped. 

What’s the weather forecast?
Perfect riding weather; mid 60’s to start and mid 70’s by the end. I’ll send out a cancellation by 7am if necessary. 

Questions?

Saturday Morning D+

Sat. 7 Jul, 2018 9:00 am
Ride Description:

Come out and join us this Saturday morning as Diane Riley leads us on a ride on the Harrisburg Greenbelt!

We will start the ride at 9:00 am at the Benjamin Olewine Nature Center at Wildwood Park, north of Harrisburg. Street address is 100 Wildwood Way, Harrisburg, PA 17110.  If you have not been to this location, best access is via the Cameron Street exit off I-81.  Turn right (west) on Wildwood Park Drive and go past the entrance to HACC, at which point the road curves to the right and becomes Industrial Rd.  Wildwood Way is just under the I-81 bridge overpass.  Turn right into Wildwood Way and park in the lot along the right side.

Plan on touring the Harrisburg Greenbelt, on paved, gravel, and trail roadways. The route includes a few hills, none of which are extreme. A hybrid bike would probably be best suited for this route, however road bikes shouldn't have any problems. Total distance will be approximately 20-22 miles. Speed will be 9-10mph, depending on the group. No one gets dropped and we'll take breaks as necessary along the route. Restrooms are available at several locations. 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..
