Well, here we are in another new year, with just under two weeks to go until the Spring Adventure Ride is here again. Since time is wasting, and throttle hands are getting twitchy, I thought that I had better get the show on the road, and finally post up this Ride thread.
Mike and I have another good route plan in the works. It includes all of the usual suspects such as; great roads in the form of asphalt, dirt and gravel, some optional trails for anyone that has off road experience, a couple of play areas along the way, and of course, all of the ball busting that you can dish out!
We will be meeting in the parking lot of the Sheetz at Halifax Pa, at the intersection of routes PA225 and PA147. Please arrive early enough to get gas, load your roll chart, and hang out and get reacquainted. Like always we will have a brief riders meeting, and then get under way by 0900.
The ride ends at the Love's travel center, which is just off of Route 81 exit 90, near Jonestown, Pa. We hope to see a bunch of you come out and enjoy the day with us again. Any questions? Fire away!
Date:............ Saturday April 8th
Start:............ Sheetz, 3586 Peters Mtn Rd, Halifax, Pa 17032
Time:............ Riders meeting 8:45, Kick stands up 9:00
Mileage:........ 185 miles
Terrain:......... Asphalt, gravel, dirt, Mtn. passes, rocks, water and mud. (you know. all the good stuff)
Type %:......... About 63% asphalt, and 37% other
Route:........... Can't tell ya yet!
Finish:........... Love's Travel Center, 22 Old Forge Rd. Jonestown, Pa 17038 (exit 90 off I-81)
Length:.......... About 8 hours
We will have three or four optional trails, which means that everyone will have a choice at those sections to either stay on the main route, or take a more adventurous optional route. These areas will be explained at the riders meeting, and will be clearly marked on the roll chart.
Lunch will be at the fast food joint of your choice in Shamokin, Pa ..... Pizza Hut, McDonald's, Burger King or any other place you may know of in town. It's your choice.
You can expect some great fun and twisty asphalt, sprinkled with some rocky Mtn. passes, groomed gravel roads, not so groomed gravel and dirt roads, rocky roads, great scenery, awesome views, and some opional challenges for those who want them.
All in all it should be a great day on the bikes with friends, and Mike and I are both looking forward to sharing the day with you all.
Thanks for all of the support.
