Ride Description: Saturday or Sunday "ad hoc" social rides (not EVERY week) in which we carpool/caravan to a trail/route outside the immediate metropolitan Harrisburg area or have weekend camping/biking adventures. Travel to venues will range from 45 minutes to 3 hours away. These are C/D+ rides which will have a 9-13 mph average and range from 20-45 miles.

Join Mary for a cycling/camping extended weekend, Friday, June 30th (set up camp) to Wednesday, July 5 (break down camp in the morning).   We will ride the Ghost Town Trail in  Nanty-Glo plus take a  field trip to ride the Three Rivers Heritage Trail around the City of Pittsburgh.  The campground I found is about 20 minutes from Ghost Town Trail and about 1 hour from Pitt (and, I would hope, better than the one we stayed in a couple summers ago!).  The rates on the website say 2016, but still valid for 2017 and they are pet friendly.   If you know of another campsite option, please let me know!
