Registered Early? Interested In Group Rides? Here's The Scoop...

Many of you were early bird registrants for the June 7th Tour de Belt.
Thank you for your support! You do not need to reregister for the 2020 virtual Tour de Belt. We will have your t-shirt ready for pick-up on all of the six supported days at Fort Hunter. Any shirts not picked up will be mailed in late August.
We are offering six small group guided rides.
Trained ride leaders from the Harrisburg Bike Club and sweeps will guide riders around the 22-mile loop and are available to help with any basic bike needs. The ride is designed for recreational riders with a pace of about 10 mph. If you have never ridden with a group, it's a great opportunity to learn about group riding and experience the Greenbelt!

COVID-19 requirements will be in place.
We ask that masks be worn at Fort Hunter, the Derry Street stop and during ride stops. They are not required to be worn while riding. All riders must practice social distancing.

Please note:
We need a minimum of 5 riders per ride and will take up to 20 riders per ride. Sign-ups will be accepted up to two days prior to the ride. All rides will start and end at Fort Hunter (east/barn side parking lot).
