The First Sunday of every month throughout the year, ride the Capital Area Greenbelt around Harrisburg. This is a great way to learn the route with a group of friendly riders. The loop is 18 miles of trail (some on road, some off road) mostly paved with many stops at crossroads. The ride leaves at 1:00 pm from the trailhead in Paxtang off Derry St (behind the City Line Diner, 3302 Derry St, Hbg 17111). If the spur routes are added to the loop (riders vote to add or not) the total mileage increases to 23-24 miles. The pace of the ride is average 10 mph (D+). We ride faster on flats and slower on hills. The terrain has a few hills. We ride the loop in a counter-clockwise direction. No rider left behind. Sign up for email notification due to the date change every month and to get cancellations due to weather or other possible reasons. Helmets are required. Be sure to pump your tires and know how to shift your gears before you come since there is a hill in the beginning of the ride.

For those that can‘t ride Tuesday morning, I‘ll be leading an East Shore Flex ride Tuesday evening. We will depart at 5:30 PM from the Fishing Creek Valley Community Center, located at 1361 Fishing Creek Valley Rd, Harrisburg, PA 17112. The entry driveway for the Community Center is exactly 2.5 miles inland from the intersection of North Front St and Fishing Creek Valley Rd, between Frog Hollow Rd and the entry for Boyd‘s Big Tree Preserve. The parking lot is around the back of the site. Starting from this location eliminates the hills closer to Fort Hunter and makes for an easier ride.

We will stop at Manada Golf Course for a break and plan on getting back before sunset at 7:48 PM This is a C paced ride with average speed 11 mph to 13 mph. No rider will be dropped.
