BSCPA, a regional advocacy group, has been working with experienced local cyclists to create a collection of bike routes that can be used by bike riders who want to ride from community to community throughout Central PA.  These routes were created on Ride With GPS so directions are available in GPS format as well as cue sheets.

Destinations primarily include cities and towns in Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Perry and York Counties. This currently includes the communities of Gettysburg, Hershey, Lancaster, Hanover, Carlisle, Columbia, Lebanon, Harrisburg, Marysville, Chambersburg, York and others.  Most routes are on paved roadways, but some offer off-road trail options. New routes will continue to be added.

Thanks to HBC members Lou Searles, Keith Douglas, Jeff McPartland, Dave Powell and Marilyn Chastek for submitting some of these routes. 

Routes were rolled out this spring, and BSCPA realizes that some of you who ride in these areas may have suggestions for improvement. Please contact Marilyn Chastek at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with any comments or questions. 

The BSCPA website also has information about the PA Bike Routes, off-road trails, mountain biking, local loop routes within a specific area and more.
