The Harrisburg Bicycle Club is embarking on a new program offering its members the opportunity to ride in other areas of the northeastern United States with other clubs as “exchange cyclists”.
The first club “exchange” will be partnered with the Princeton New Jersey Free Wheelers. On one weekend, probably in June, members of the Free Wheelers Club will travel to Harrisburg to ride with our members. A Saturday evening social event will be scheduled in addition to the weekend of riding opportunities.
Visiting Free Wheelers will be hosted by members of the Harrisburg Bicycle Club, offering “bed and breakfast” accommodations.
On another weekend in June or July, members of the Harrisburg Bicycle Club will travel to Princeton to ride with the Free Wheelers and enjoy a Saturday evening social event sponsored by the Princeton club. Harrisburg Bicycle Club members will be hosted with “bed and breakfast” accommodations by members of the Free Wheelers.
To participate, club members are asked to “exchange”; to host and be hosted.
With this program, we shall offer our members the opportunity to ride in new areas with new friends without the expense of hotels.
We are currently working to arrange “exchanges” with other clubs in the northeast and expect a few opportunities throughout the riding year.
