Registration is not Required
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.
There is no charge for this ride
