Ride Description:

LTL Capitol Tuesday Tour ... we'll take a short ride from the Camp Hill Borough building at 2145 Walnut Street, Camp Hill ... meet in front of the building across from the Fire station and Cemetery ... to our PA Capitol for one of the half-hour formal tours of the building followed by a short ride up to the Italian Gardens and back to City Island and across the Market Street bridge to our start ... we could also go up Walnut Street on our return ... easier than you might expect for an overview of the City and the Susquehanna River.

Total distance ... about 12 miles.  Make it longer by meeting at my house, or on the corner of St. John's Drive and Carlisle Pike by 8:15am and add another 8-10 miles.

Lunch after the tour in the Capitol building or nearby or after the ride on the West Shore.

This is a terrific tour ... I've done it half a dozen times already and learn something new each time.  This week our tour was delayed because of the budget negotiations are hopefully coming to fruition this week and are elected officials were busy with the camera crews telling us all about it.
