Two different routes are being offered: a 25 mile ride and a 12 mile ride. Both rides travel through the Gettysburg National Military Park and over picturesque Sachs Covered Bridge. The longer ride will also wind its way through the quiet country roads of southern Adams County. Preregistration is available on line through the end of the day on Sept 21. Ride-day registration is also available and opens at 8 a.m. The self-paced longer ride leaves at 9 a.m. with Senator Alloway as the honorary lead rider. The shorter ride will be guided by members of HABPI and departs at 9:30. A free BBQ lunch is provided after the rides starting at 11 a.m. A t-shirt is included in the price of registration.
Proceeds from this event will be used to design, develop, and maintain trails and bike routes in and around Gettysburg, PA. HABPI is currently pursuing development of an off-road bike/pedestrian trail from Gettysburg south to the Maryland border that will fill in one of the missing pieces of the Grand History Trail.
