More Info

https://ridewithgps.com/routes/37344942 This is a B pace club ride that is designed to provide an option between the C+ ride at this location and the much faster A ride.

This ride is designed to be a “no drop” ride. Participants should be experienced in bike handling and capable of sustaining a B pace of 15 mph to 17 mph.

The pace we achieve on any individual ride will be a function of collective group fitness, route parameters, amount of climbing, etc. For those reasons our average pace may at times be very close to 15 mph; other times it may be higher.

Ride distances will depend on available daylight, route, and climbing. We will attempt to include a mid-ride check in and/or a very short rest stop as needed.

Route: My plan for this Saturday's ride was to go the B4B Route since many of you will not get to enjoy that event this year due to the fall tour. I rode the route myself a couple weeks ago and had totally forgotten how great a route that is. The weather looked very favorable. However, I was told there is another training ride for the fall tour so that kind of negates the purpose of my plan. So stay tuned for an announcement for Monday AM; hopefully many of you will be able to join me then.

Chris suggested one of my favorite routes, Fishing Creek. However, I know I would be issued a HBC Speeding Ticket after that ride. So for Saturday we will fall back on a route that I have not rode since July that has about 2K climb which will slow me down. BTW we will not be including Mr. Wonderful's amazing short cut this week! 😉

There are no long climbs and all the climbs are fairly easy but frequent; to the ½ point the route is generally up but the climbs are very short followed by a small descent and then another short c

Saturday, the 11th of September

The topic for this Gettysburg Battlefield Ride is "The best 3 hours of fighting ever done", which is a quote from LTG James Longstreet in regards to the fighting done by his two divisions ( Hood & McLaws ) on 2 July '63. This ride will cover about 20 miles with very frequent stops to present what happened during this portion of the battle.

The ride will take us to such well know locations as The Peach Orchard, The Wheatfield, Houck's Ridge, Devil's Den, The Slaughter Pen, Bloody Run, and of course Little Round Top. Meet at Parking Lot # 3 of the Gettysburg National Visitor's Center, and be ready to ride at 9 AM. Helmets are required and with the frequent stops for talks, this is NOT a difficult ride ( with the exception of biking / walking to Little Round Top ). We will ride into town for lunch, and probably finish the ride between 3:30 and 4 PM.

This ride is designed to be a “no drop” ride. Participants should be experienced in bike handling and capable of sustaining a B pace of 15 mph to 17 mph.

The pace we achieve on any individual ride will be a function of collective group fitness, route parameters, amount of climbing, etc. For those reasons our average pace may at times be very close to 15 mph; other times it may be higher.
